Khalid Height, Weight, Age & Girlfriend

An up-and-coming rapper, Khalid has been involved with music ever since his high school days. Shortly after his graduation, he broke through with the release of his debut single, Location. Responsible for his rise to fame, the track peaked at number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100, but not before garnering praises from contemporary critics. Outside of the United States, the record also charted in countries such as Switzerland, New Zealand, Philippines, and Belgium, among others. Accompanied by an official MV, the video has since been played more than 100 million times on Youtube. To date, Location has gone platinum three times in the US.

Continuing to churn out singles over the next few months, he released the tracks, Let’s Go, Hopeless, Reasons, and Saved, though none of them matched the success of his debut effort. Then on February 2, 2017, the rapper dropped his next single, Young Dumb & Broke. Written in part by Khalid himself (with help from Joel Little, Jared Boies, and Talay Riley), it peaked as high as number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. A global hit, it also charted in countries such as Sweden, Germany, Canada, Latia, Malaysia, Norway, and Australia, to name a few. On Youtube, the official music video has been viewed over 110 million times.

Most recently, Khalid came out with his debut album, American Teen on March 3, 2017. Preceded by his breakout single, Location, the record comprised of 15 tracks, some of which included Shot Down, Therapy, Another Sad Love Song, Let’s Go, Cold Blooded, and Hopeless. A considerable success, the album entered the Billboard 200 at number nine in the United States; from there, it went on to peak at number 4 just a few weeks later. As with his earlier singles, the album also enjoyed success overseas- for instance, it was certified gold in both Canada and Denmark.

In support of his debut album, the emcee had hit the roads for a concert tour earlier this year. From January until now, he has already performed over 100 shows across the world from Toronto, Canada, to Tilburg, Netherlands. For those who may be interested in seeing him perform live, he still has a few shows left this year in Australia and New Zealand. In addition to that, he’ll also be continuing the tour in the UK in early 2018. Recognized for his contributions, he earned several accolades this year- many of which are still pending. As of October 2017 however, he has already won a Woodie Award and an MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist.
