NEW MUSIC: KHALID | PRESENT
Khalid has been absent from the music scene but has released new music with the brand new single "Present." It’s been a couple of years since Khalid dropped off his sophomore LP "Free Spirit," which saw 17 tracks and a couple of assists from John Mayer and Safe. The project was a massive commercial success, landing the Texas star his first number one album on the Billboard 200 thanks to an impressive 202,000 first-week album-equivalent units sold. The smooth and breezy track is taken from his forthcoming EP "Scenic Drive," which is expected to drop December 3rd and will serve as an intro to his album, which will follow. “You know what, before I give people this album that is almost like a new reintroduction to who I am as a creative, I’m like, I want to go back to my basics and I want to make an R&B tape, EP, undecided on what it is because it birthed ‘Present.’ There are two projects. They’re related. They’re related, but it’s like the more mature cousin. And then the album is like its own thing, it’s like this newborn baby,” said Khalid. Khalid revealed that the EP would feature about eight songs and collaborate with Ari Lennox, Majid Jordan, 6LACK, JID and more.
