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!”
