Khalid has been hustling hard since his breakout single "Location" hit the charts in 2016. Most recently, the RnB singer can be spotted adding his touch to numerous collaborative productions, including Normani's first solo single "Love Lies." Their co-written song that appears on the soundtrack for the film Love, Simon, has garnered much appreciation, hitting the US Billboard Top 100. Rumors of a romantic relationship between the two sparked out of their convincing performances of the love song. You can listen to the latest remix of the song in question here. Khalid also got romantic on the Superfly soundtrack. In this case, he teamed up with H.E.R. for a duet called "This Way." The collaborations aren't limited to female artists. The "Location" singer was called upon to bless Kyle's debut album, which dropped last month, and cut "Youth" with Shawn Mendes.
