New Music: Khalid – ‘Better’

Khalid topped the charts and earned Grammy nominations with his critically-acclaimed debut American Teen. Now, after collaborating with everyone from Shawn Mendes to Logic, the R&B crooner delivers his new single “Better.”

“Nothing feels better than this,” he sings on the soulful jam, which he dedicates to his hometown of El Paso, Texas. “With love, to the 915,” he writes on the cover art.

Khalid is feeling better and better. Just this week, he earned three American Music Awards nominations and also received the key to his hometown.

“This is such a huge honor,” said Khalid. “It’s truly nothing I would’ve ever imagined. Never really felt like I belonged or had a home before I moved to El Paso.”

Additionally, he recently scored his first top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Love Lies” featuring Normani, which peaked at No. 9.
