Budding singer Khalid has released his first full-length album, American Teen, on Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records. The 15-track LP features his hit single “Location,” which has over 48 million streams on Spotify. It also features “Shot Down” and “Saved.”

American Teen opens with the title track, where the 19-year-old sings about the joys of being a teenager. “So wake me up in the spring / While I’m high off my American dream / We don’t always say what we mean / That’s the lie of an American teen,” Khalid sings on the Hiko Momoji & Syk Sense-produced track.

Throughout the album, Khalid covers topics that his millennial colleagues can relate to.  “A lot of my songs are about loneliness and losing relationships,” Khalid told Entertainment Weekly. “Even the ones that are happy, there’s a lonely undertone to them.”

Stream Victoria Monet’s New EP ‘Life After Love, Pt. 1’

Singer-songwriter Victoria Monet turns her heartbreak into music on her latest EP, Life After Love, Pt. 1. On the nine-track project, Monet shares her feelings from a past relationship. With song titles like “Wish I Never Met You” and “No Good,” Monet definitely didn’t hold back on being transparent with her fans.

“This project is the direct result of an unfortunate breakup I had with someone that I loved very much,” Monet told Teen Vogue. “We were together for six years. He was someone I worked with, lived with, and even shared a birthday with. I thought we were soulmates and that I couldn’t live without him, but this project says otherwise.”

She continued, “Part 1 tells the story of the emotions I went through in order: the regret, insecurity, falling back in love, self-pleasure, crying, and coming to my senses. It’s very personal and anyone who has ever gone through a breakup can relate to at least one of these songs. I want to be clear though, that I didn’t want to release this project until I was sure that we both healed from it. As songwriters and artists we get a lot of attention and gratification when we write about the moments that have hurt us, and in turn, sometimes we’ll seek out more hurt so we can write more things that people like. I chose not to let this project do that. Out of respect, my ex and I have talked about the fact that I’m talking about the breakup publicly and have an understanding for the creative healing process.”

Khalid and Normani Make Chemistry in ‘Love Lies’ Video

Khalid and Normani can’t keep their eyes off each other in their fervid visual for “Love Lies,” lifted from the impending Love, Simon soundtrack.

The cinematic video begins with Khalid — who is working as a valet attendant — setting up his on-the-job plans with a text thread with his Fifth Harmony co-star. He sends Normani the ‘location’ of the hotel he works at and she pulls up shortly in a black ride.

The Young Dumb & Broke artist opens her door, and Normani steps out dressed in a flowy black trench-coat. Eager to put on a show, she hardly makes it to her room before she snatches off her coat to reveal her sexy lingerie.

Finally, in the room, Normani draws back the curtains and dances like her life depends on it. Khalid has a bird’s-eye view of her dance number and sends her emojis of appreciation at his valet post.

Love, Simon will hit the big screen on March 16.
