Recommended by Andrew Gospe

Khalid Robinson had a Top 20 hit when he was still in high school, and the 20-year-old’s music remains grounded in modern teenage concerns: friends growing apart, relationships mediated through technology, hiding weed from your parents. Despite this thematic focus, what stands out after multiple listens is the maturity of his sound and songwriting. He has a gravelly, lived-in voice and he cites influences like Fleetwood Mac, Bill Withers, and Aaliyah, who are well outside the typical young person cultural milieu. You get the sense we’ll be hearing Khalid’s name (pronounced “Kuh-leed,” for all you DJ Khalid fans who read The Stranger) for a long while.
