Khalid Donnel Robinson (born February 11, 1998)[1] is an American singer signed to Right Hand Music Group and RCA Records. He rose to fame after the release of his debut studio album American Teen (2017), which was certified 4× platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album spawned the US top 20 singles "Location" and "Young Dumb & Broke", with the former being certified Diamond by the RIAA.

Later that year, he was featured on Logic's US top 10 single "1-800-273-8255" with Alessia Cara, which earned him a Grammy Award for Song of the Year nomination. The following year, Khalid released the No. 1 pop songs "Love Lies" with Normani and "Eastside" with Benny Blanco and Halsey, both of which tied the record at the time for longest charting songs on the Mainstream Top 40 chart and reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. In September 2018, he released the No. 1 Rhythmic song "Better" as the lead single from his top 10 EP Suncity. In April 2019, he released his second studio album, Free Spirit, which debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart. The lead single "Talk" peaked at No. 3 in the US and earned him a Grammy Award for Record of the Year nomination.

Khalid has received multiple accolades including six Grammy Award nominations, six Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards and a MTV Video Music Award. In 2019, Khalid was named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People.[2]
