People and fans have shown a lot of love to the album and also to the artist who has been much popular among the R&B listeners.

I’m Having Trouble Locating Khalid’s Free Spirit

Streaming wars is at an all-time high whether its artists battling over who has the most streams, or the actual platforms themselves fighting over users, the war is here and there’s no telling when it will end. Who you choose to side with, is your business. I personally use and pay for all 3 of the major streaming platforms, Apple Music, Spotify, and Tidal, am I ballin? Anyways, they all bring different things to the table and I can thank Apple Music for Beats 1 Radio. I don’t remember the show or DJ, but sometime in the summer of 2016, a song titled “Location” by an artist named Khalid began to surface and stayed in rotation. With his uniquely strong and mature voice, I was certain Khalid was much older than he turned out to be. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one. So, you could imagine my surprise when the news circulated that he was only 17 years old during the rise of that record. Suddenly, as I watched the video, and closely listened while dissecting the lyrics like the music nerd I tend to be, it began to make little more sense. I mean really, only teens have that much trouble finding a place to be alone and get it crackin’. When his debut album, American Teen was released I must say, I was a tad disappointed in its content. Outside of the lead single and follow up single “Young Dumb and Broke”, nothing else really grasped me in the same way. The lead single, “Location” was the type of record with huge replay value, and was on constant rotation during my days as a Postmate and Uber Eats delivery guy, hey we all gotta hustle right? Obviously, nothing can be taken away from the success of that album. After its release in March of 2017, the album went on to be certified platinum in October of the same year. Going further, it received Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album while “Location” was nominated for best R&B Song losing out to Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like.” No shame there. To date, his debut album has been certified double platinum as of August of 2018. Clearly, my opinion isn’t that he doesn’t make good music or that he isn’t a talent but rather, maybe his music just isn’t for me, and that’s ok. While I was ready to write him off as the type of artist I would only like here and there, he kept providing glimpses into the type of artist I would hope for him to be.
