Khalid’s week couldn’t possibly get any “better than this.” This past Thursday, The Mayor and Council of the city of El Paso honored the multi-platinum global superstar with a “Key To The City” marking September 13th, 2018 “Khalid Day.” While in his hometown, Khalid performed two sold-out arena shows and dropped a new track entitled “Better” dedicated to his fans and the city of El Paso. “Better” is available now at all digital retail providers via Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records.
Khalid says; “El Paso is my home and I am so honored by the love they have shown me – releasing ‘Better’ the day of my first hometown show, and then being able to play in the city of the 915 ON 9/15 is so meaningful and special to me. This city has given me everything, I am so thankful!”
Not only has Khalid’s debut album American Teen been officially certified Double Platinum by the RIAA, but this week he also received four American Music Award nominations including New Artist of the Year, Favorite Male Artist – Soul/R&B, Favorite Album – Soul R&B, and Favorite Song – Soul/R&B for “Young Dumb & Broke.”
