Khalid is an 18-year-old singer from dusty and beautiful El Paso, Texas. He moved to Los Angeles after graduating high school this spring and releasing "Location," which has since become a surprise hit (between Spotify and SoundCloud, it has garnered 17 million plays).
Today he released a new song called "Hopeless," an admission that he is a hopeless romantic, his spirit unfazed by a few unrequited crushes he's had. After debuting the track on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show, Khalid spoke briefly on trying to get his music career off the ground while avoiding typical high school distractions.
Give "Hopeless" a listen and let us know what you think.
Now tell me was I ever something that you could have grabbed
I know I wasn't the one for you but at least tried my best
Surrounded by questions like why do 2 part ways
But if my memory is right, you're the one I love
