It was a challenge for me to dig most of Khalid’s previous effort, American Teen, and while I recognized that the young singer was doing a something a little different and cool with his voice, over some fresh New Romantic era material, the plethora of songs on his debut album didn’t really hold my attention because they sounded redundant too my ears. Reading up on the superstar, I discovered that he had a super strong following in his adopted El Paso, with basically the whole school of Americas High behind him, therefore it was determined at the time to slap together his surplus of music to capitalize on the buzz caused by hot national singles like “Location.” This, I suspect, is the reason why I felt some tracks were decent while others were lukewarm – because of this need to rush and get him out there. The culture and critics were fine with it though, and he garnered a bunch of Grammy noms as a result. I remained unmoved – then I gave Suncity a listen and it changed my mind completely.
