KHALID RELEASES “YOUNG DUMB & BROKE (REMIX)” FEAT. RAE SREMMURD & LIL YACHTY
Singer/songwriter Khalid, 19, recently released the remix to “Young Dumb & Broke” featuring hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd, and rapper, Lil Yachty.
In June, Khalid announced his second North American headlining tour called the “American Teen Tour” in support of his debut album. The tour, which kicked off July 12 in Portland, sold out so quickly that each city needed to switch to larger venues or additional shows were added.
The entire tour is officially sold out.
Khalid will be making a number of stops in major cities including two New York Shows at Terminal 5, three shows at The Novo in Los Angeles, as well as in Toronto and Chicago.
The “American Teen Tour” will conclude Sept. 1 at Sacramento’s Memorial Auditorium.
Khalid also recently celebrated the success of his hit single “Location,” which is now certified Platinum by the RIAA, with a plaque commemorating the sales and streams of more than one million copies of the Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records single. “Location” hit #1 at Urban Radio, hit the top 3 at Rhythmic Radio and is in the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
Khalid released “Location” before his high school graduation and it garnered over 1.52 million plays in less than two months, which led to his major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records.
Khalid’s debut album, “American Teen,”has received mass critical acclaim with praise from The New York Times, TIME Magazine, Billboard, NYLON, and many more. Billboard stated, “…effortlessly excellent…the kid is still so young, but this body of work is beyond his years”. Khalid has also performed on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Good Morning America,” and at this year’s SXSW where he won MTV’s Woodie To Watch Award.
Khalid has been nominated for a 2017 BET Award for Best New Artist, and he’s currently the face of Forever 21’s Summer Digital Campaign, #F21xMusic, Men’s Line, and named MTV Push: Artist to Watch for the month of July.
