First Listen: All Khalid Needs is Her “Location”

Khalid is a new singer/songwriter from El Paso, Texas who began his music career only last year.  His music is a tantalizing mix of electro-soul, house and ambient sounds, and his voice is like a warm, thick syrup with just a hint of reggae inflection. 

We feature here Khalid’s debut track, “Location,” released earlier this year and which has already garnered over 4 million plays on Spotify.  It revels in its simplicity: Riding atop little more than handclaps and staccato, plucked strings, Khalid urges his girl to focus on their communication.  You’ll nod your head in time to this one.  Enjoy.
