Get ready for the Khalid: The Roxy Tour 2018
Just over two years ago, young R&B sensation Khalid Robinson broke onto the music scene and has been going full speed ever since. You most likely know him by just his first name, Khalid. You may have also recently seen him voted as the Top New Artist at this years Billboard Music Awards. What you may not know, though, is that this young man from Georgia introduced himself to the world with his debut single “Location” in 2016 which ended up going quadruple platinum. As it turns out his high school peers were right when creating the senior superlatives, because right above the phrase “Most Likely To Go Platinum” stood an image of Khalid. Now this is an incredible feat for any artist, but for some when this occurs early in their career it can make them feel as if it’s going to be impossible to match or even top that kind of success. Khalid saw this as a opportunity to prove how much of an artist he truly is. At the age of eighteen with “Location” already released, Khalid was in the process diving further into the world of music as he was creating his debut album “American Teen“.
There’s something about it that makes me want to sing and dance along every time I hear it. Just after I thought I had heard enough to go without it for a while, Khalid collaborated with Imagine Dragons for the American Music Awards to create a mashup of his hit “Young Dumb & Broke” and their chart topper “Thunder“. Needless to say, that song was on repeat for me for a solid two weeks. The performance was so popular in fact, they released a studio version a few weeks later.
The collaborations did not stop there, since then Khalid has went on to work with others such as Marshmello with their dance hit “Silence“. Even partnering with 6LACK and Ty Dolla $ign to create “OTW“. Also, most recently working with Normani of Fifth Harmony to release “Love Lies“ and even Shawn Mendes for “Youth“. With all this music being created inside the studio Khalid still finds time to embark on a world wide tour. The current tour that we had the please of joining him on is titled The Roxy Tour which get its name from Khalid’s adopted Pitbull mix. Unfortunately Roxy passed away in December but Khalid honor her memory each night on tour. He has also chosen to donate $1 of every ticket purchased to local animal shelters at each stop on tour.
