Khalid makes his “SNL” debut memorable.
Khalid took another big step in his career this past weekend when he performed as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live. Taking to the SNL stage is an accolade that several artists would love to have on their resume, but only those with a widespread fan base and cross-genre appeal tend to be blessed with the opportunity. Fortunately for Khalid, he is one of those artists. The 21-year-old crooner performed “Talk” followed by “Better,” and he killed it as expected.
“Talk” is a single off Khalid’s highly anticipated new album Free Spirit, slated to drop next month. It will be accompanied by a short film of the same name. “This album is the culmination of all of the growth and experiences I have gathered over the past two remarkable years,” Kahlid told Zane Lowe. “I have been in the studio pouring my soul and spirit to create a body of work that I hope speaks to each and every one of you… I met up with Disclosure, they played me this crazy-ass instrumental. I hopped on it for sure, and made one my favorite songs I’ve ever been a part of, so I really thank them for that, too.” Check out Khalid’s SNL performances below.
