'American Teen' Khalid Explains How Kylie Jenner Boosted 'Location' & More

It's a surreal feeling to be an American teen, dropping a 15-track album titled American Teen and being a recent high school graduate of Americas High School. This is how Khalid simply puts it when describing his debut project. 

At the young age of nineteen, Khalid's soothing soulful vocals are making major headway and climbing the charts. The music video for his breakout hit "Location" has over 16 million views and his followup single "Saved" is rising on the Hot R&B Songs list.

"The reason why I released 'Location,' it was around senior prom and I hadn't released anything on SoundCloud in a longtime, but on my graduation day Kylie Jenner played the record on her Snapchat which was insane because the record, it's almost like it skyrocketed."
