I listened for a second time, like a few songs but still feel like I need to listen again to fully grasp what he's doing.

Yeah this isn't a good album. I tried. I love his style and voice though but he needs a little more guidance on the songs. The Location remix is everything though.

Khalid Announces 25-Date American Teen Tour

Khalid, the 19-year-old Texas-bred alt-R&B singer and breakout RCA signee, announced a 25-date North American tour set to run through the end of the summer. The American Teen Tour, named for his debut album released March 3, will be his second headlining outing, and will kick off July 12 at Portland, Ore.'s Roseland Theater.

Khalid's emergence as a soulful, bubbling star has been swift over the past few months, spurred by his breakout single "Location," which climbed to No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100, and currently remains in chart's top 20. His first LP, American Teen (Right Hand Music/RCA Records) debuted and peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 upon release, and helped him become a hot commodity; earlier this year, Zedd teased an upcoming collaboration with the singer, and he appeared on Calvin Harris' latest track, "Rollin,'" which also features Future, as well as alongside Alessia Cara on Logic's top-50 Hot 100 hit "1-800-273-8255." In March, "Location" also got a remix with additional features from Lil Wayne and Kehlani.

But it's not just artists who are knocking on Khalid's door these days. On Sunday, Forever 21 announced a new global campaign with the young singer in which he will serve as the face of the retailer's #F21XMUSIC summer push, as well as its men's line. The Khalid-Forever 21 partnership was put together by MAC Presents and Khalid's manager Court Stewart from Right Hand, while the tour was booked by his agent Cara Lewis through her Cara Lewis Group.

"Personal style is really important to my everyday life, so it’s really cool to be partnering with Forever 21 and F21XMUSIC this summer to spread the message and music of American Teen,” Khalid said in a statement accompanying the partnership. "I made this album to freeze-frame where I am in life, at the beginning of young adulthood, and celebrating lots of incredible milestones for the first time."

The American Teen Tour will run from mid-July throughout the end of August, with a single date in San Francisco on Sept. 21. Check out the tour dates below.

Oh I like that one. Both the song & the video are cute. I just wish he doesn't sing like he's about to go to sleep.

Ok, so I ended up checking this out again after writing it off earlier today..... it's actually really good :o 8TEEN is pretty amazing, no idea why I never appreciated it before!

Only listened to half today, but going to spin it a few times tomorrow to see if I can get into it proper!

Gave this a listen today, what a bland and boring album. I thought it would be great based on first singles but i'm mistaken sadly.
