I’m trying something new: Whenever I find an artist who I really like or a collection of songs that really speak to me, I’ll create a blog post dedicated to my Top 5 tracks at that time.
In true Thoko fashion, the first artist I’ll be spotlighting is Khalid. The 21-year-old singer from El Paso, Texas came into all of our lives when his first single, Location, went quadruple platinum. From his captivating voice to his smooth and sensual beats, he’s definitely a top artist to watch.
Here are 5 of my favorite songs (in no particular order):
“Happy seventeen, I saw us two and you saw three.
I guess our lines are structured like a haiku.”
Talk (with Disclosure)
“Before we get lost, lend me your thoughts
Can’t get what we want without knowin'”
“No more love, in and out of clubs
Knowing what you gotta do
You’ve got plans wrapped in rubber bands
And that’s the only thing you’ll never lose”
“Love to see you shine in the night like the diamond you are”
Another Sad Love Song
“I must be honest, I have a lot of pride
But I’m broken inside
I guess this sounds like another sad love song”
As a bonus, here is a Spotify playlist spotlighting Khalid’s top songs:
