Khalid Celebrates 'American Teen' Release With New Video Premiere
El Paso’s own Khalid has been the name on every audiophiles’ lips as he has went from independent Soundcloud act to a certified superstar. With his debut effort, American Teen, currently available for purchase — the singer-songwriter celebrates his release with a new video for the title track of the album, “American Teen”.
In addition to the new album, new video and hopefully, new fans — Khalid will also be participating in Vevo‘s new LIFT campaign, which will begin rolling out in the next few weeks. For those who don’t know, Vevo will release first-hand short films pegged to artists with a dynamic story to share. 19-year-old Khalid’s Becoming will reflect on his album, life, love, hope, longing and the complexities that come with growing up black in America.
The film will interweave his creative musical process — from the time he picks up the pen to the time he enters the booth — with cinematic scenes capturing just what life is like for El Paso teens and Khalid.
