It’s been a big week for Khalid. The rising R&B sensation scored a top 10 debut on the Billboard 200 with his first album American Teen, performed on “The Tonight Show,” and won MTV’s Woodie to Watch award.
Now, the 19-year-old El Paso, Texas crooner caps off the week with the official remix to his hit single “Location” featuring Lil Wayne and Kehlani.
The original gets revamped with some explicit rhymes from a candid Tunechi. “I’ll turn your dry spot into an oasis,” he raps. “I’ll kiss the right spots, I know all the places.”
Meanwhile, Lani discusses an undefined relationship in the public eye. “They can choose to watch, but I’d rather they just listen,” she sings. “Could fill up an album with everything that they’re missin’ / They so superficial, don’t understand how we’re chillin’ / We don’t need a lot, we got us, and that’s why we’re winnin’.”
American Teen debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 this week, but that isn’t going to keep Khalid from releasing more new music this year.
“It’s crazy to think that I got to release a debut album,” he told MTV News. “My first album. There’s gonna be many more. There’s gonna be so much new music coming in 2017. It’s looking like a really good year for me.”
