Khalid: ‘American Teen’ Is Freshest, Surprising Debut Album – Rolling Stone
How Khalid, made his debut album, 'American Teen,' while barely out of high school. Khalid Robinson is zigzagging through galleries at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art when a disturbing canvas stops him in his tracks. It depicts a naked man with a vertical gash in his torso, through which a second naked man, covered in blood, drifts outward. Khalid is a year-old pop prodigy with a lovely, leathery voice and a knack for big, breezy sing-songs. His debut album, American Teen, came out a few months ago , and although it pulses with euphoric dance beats, Eighties synths and tales of marijuana-and booze-fueled high school raging, melancholy is never far away, either. The album is full of fragile relationships — friends having a blast only to grow apart; lovers yearning for one another only to get caught up in passive-aggressive mind games. Technology references — cellphone photo albums, ride-share apps, GPS pins — pop up constantly, sometimes enabling connections, sometimes crippling them.
