In 2016, Khalid Robinson was voted most likely to go Platinum in his upper class. About a year later he showed up correctly. Robinson split his childhood between Georgia, Kentucky, New York and Heidelberg, Germany, eventually in El Paso, Texas – a pattern of disturbances that often made him feel like an outsider. Self-denoted as "an annoying teenager", he obtained songwriting primarily to ward off loneliness, share music through SoundCloud and quickly catch the ears of both his peers and the industry. (His breakout single, 201
6s "Location", was occupied during the spring of his senior year, a few weeks after he came out, he won Prom King, in a couple of years, the song sold more than five million copies in the United States alone. ) In 2017, he launched American Teen
a festive but bittersweet mix of synth-pop and neon-lit R & B, which received five Grammy nominations, making sure that you rarely are an outsider alone. Occasionally, Robinson featured highly profound collaboration with Logic ("1-800-273-8255"), Calvin Harris ("Rollin") and Normani ("Love Lies"). An EP, Suncity
arrived in late 2018, opened with the sound of Khalid who was given keys to the city of El Paso, not bad for a child who had moved there just a few years before. After reflecting on his development from the audience of the artist for the Apple Music Up Next
series, Robinson said: "I would sit in this apartment, I would look at the mountain behind me, I wanted to see all the lightning, and I would listen to music. I was like, "Do you know what? I need something to help me a little more. "" Then he took it on himself and started writing.
