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 Tinashe’s New Album ‘Joyride’

After several delays, Tinashe has finally released her sophomore album, Joyride. The album consists of 13 tracks with appearances from Ty Dolla $ign, French Montana, Little Dragon, Future and Offset.

The 25-year-old singer shared with Vulture what she took away from the album’s delay. “It pushed me to create the version of the album that is coming out now,” she said. “I made the mistake of even talking about the project too soon. When I look back on the entire journey of it, I’m very thankful for the time that it did take. It was important that it ended up taking as long as it did.”

Tinashe added, “There were times along the way were there were creative discrepancies, but I’m happy to say that this project is all me. Everything from the cover art, to the sequencing, to the number of seconds in between the tracks, that’s me.”

Joyride is the follow-up to Tinashe’s debut album, Aquarius, which released in 2014.
