Watch: Khalid Performs Stripped Down Versions of “Angels” & “Coaster”

Khalid and VEVO connect for a special performance.

The breakout teen sensation recently went acoustic for VEVO’s “LIFT: Stripped Session” series, which included live stripped-down renditions of the songs “Angels” and “Coaster” off his acclaimed debut album American Teen.

In the clip for “Angel,” Khalid stands in a dark high school gym after a school dance. With confetti covering the floor, and only a pianist beside him, the 19-year-old sings the melancholy lyrics: “I’ve been seeing angels / In my living room / That have walked the sun / And have slept on the moon.”

The mood gets even darker in the visual for “Coaster,” which finds Khalid under a spotlight on the gym’s bleachers. Backed by a guitarist this time, the crooner steps into the middle of the floor and sings the soulful standout. “I’ll be coasting, roller-coasting through my emotions / I will be coasting, roller-coasting / I’m hoping that you’ll come back to me,” he sings.

Khalid recently spent the weekend at Coachella, where he hung with Kehlani, SZA, Solange and more.

Check out his emotional acoustic performance below.

Rihanna, Kehlani, Sevyn, Tinashe & More Storm Coachella 2017

As if the desert wasn’t hot enough on the first weekend of Coachella 2017, some of R&B’s sexiest starlets stormed the annual spring festival to enjoy the good vibes.

While only a few of our favorites were actually on the bill, like Kehlani and NAO, others–like Rihanna–made surprise appearances, and some were there to attend the brand events, like Solange and Tinashe.

During her Sunday night set, Kehlani rocked a lose fitting white outfit that had ‘Find Our Girls’ written on her top, and ‘Solidarity’ down the leg of her pants.

Rihanna had social media in a craze over her shimmering full body suit with low cut Gucci tank top and jean shorts on Day 2, and she was seen turning up in the crowd to Kendrick Lamar’s set on Day 3.

The Weeknd, who came out to perform with XO producer-turned-artist NAV, spent some quality time with girlfriend Selena Gomez backstage. Singers like Sevyn Streeter, SZA, Christina Milian, Justine Skye and more all were in attendance as well to take in the performances and mingle during the events.

Buzzing teen singer-songwriter Khalid caught up with Solange and Kehlani, who also spent some time with Sevyn and SZA on Day 2. Jhené Aiko and her sister Mila J were also hanging around. Jhené posted a photo on Instagram that said her body was in Coachella but her heart is at the Lightning in a Bottle Festival, which is coming up on Memorial Day Weekend.

Check out all their festive fun with the photos and video footage below.

New Music: Khalid feat. Kehlani & Lil Wayne – Location (Remix)

After teasing fans with a short preview earlier in the week, buzzing young artist Khalid debuts the anticipated remix to his breakout hit “Location.”

Teaming up with Lil Wayne and Kehlani, the new version takes the location of lovin’ to new heights.

Over the slinky production, Tunechi kicks off the remix with some provocative lines: “I’ll turn your dry spot into an oasis / I’ll kiss the right spots, I know all the places,” raps Weezy.

After Khalid’s original verse, Kehlani joins in with some revelations about a relationship in the public eye. “They can choose to watch, but I’d rather they just listen / Could fill up an album with everything that they’re missin’ / They so superficial, don’t understand how we’re chillin’ / We don’t need a lot, we got us, and that’s why we’re winnin’,” she sings.

Earlier this week, Khalid’s debut album American Teen landed in the top 10 of the Billboard 200, he performed on “The Tonight Show,” and just won MTV’s Woodie to Watch award.

Listen: Khalid Releases Debut Album ‘American Teen’

Today, 19-year-old singer/songwriter, Khalid, has released his anticipated debut album American Teen via Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records.

The 15-track album has been led by the breakout hit single “Location,” and additional early releases “Let’s Go,” “Hopeless,” “Coaster,” “Saved,” and “Shot Down.”

Born into a military family, Khalid spent most of his childhood in Germany, before moving to Watertown, NY for high school. The summer going into his senior year, Khalid’s family was ordered to relocate to El Paso, TX.  By 18-years-old, Khalid, who is classically vocal trained, had drawn on his experiences with moving often and the unique experience of growing up in two continents, and parlayed them into the creation of “Location,” which he independently released before his high school graduation and became a viral smash.

Khalid just recently wrapped up his first headlining tour in both the U.S. and select European cities where he sold-out every single show. To compliment the albums release, Khalid has also unveiled a music video for the title and opening song “American Teen.”
