After debuting at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 back in March, Khalid’s American Teen has continued to gain momentum. “It’s crazy,” he says. “I’m gaining so many new fans every day and it’s exciting.”
Just before winning best new artist at the the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, Khalid stopped by on the red carpet to talk with Billboard about his debut album and more.
“The music is definitely for a good cause. It helps me out and it helps my friends out,” the “Location” singer explains. “They’re having the time of their lives too.”
When asked about new music, Khalid says he’s very focused on collaborations especially since touring has made it difficult to record on his own. “Any time I meet someone that I gain a frienship with, it’s always studio time.”
