Following the completion of the tour, his debut studio album, American Teen, was released on March 3, 2017. The album received critical acclaim and Grammy Award nominations for Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best R&B Song (for “Location”), at the 2018 ceremony.

In 2017, he collaborated with Lorde, SZA, and Post Malone on Lorde‘s “Homemade Dynamite” remix. He released a duet with singer, Normani, called “Love Lies”, recorded for the Love, Simon film soundtrack, which reached the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 in 2018. “Love Lies” was each artist’s first number one on the US Pop Songs chart and finished in the top 20 of the 2018 Billboard Hot 100 Year-End chart.
Khalid‘s song, “The Ways”, with rapper Swae Lee was featured in the Marvel film, Black Panther. As of February 23, 2018, the song peaked at number 63 on the Billboard Hot 100.
He collaborated with Billie Eilish on the song, “Lovely”, which was sampled multiple times on Goodbye & Good Riddance, the debut album of rapper Juice Wrld. It was also played on the popular Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why in Season 2 Episode 13. In July 2018, he was featured alongside Halsey on Benny Blanco‘s debut single “Eastside”.

Khalid‘s music is primarily R&B, hip-hop, pop and pop-soul. He sings in both the baritone and tenor ranges, effectively rendering him a baritenor. Khalid possesses a two and a half octave vocal range, ranging from the low F2 to the middle B♭4.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE KHALID?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire KHALID for an event?)
(i.e., what is KHALID booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for KHALID, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
