Khalid is BACK with another amazing song called ‘Eleven.’

During a recent interview with Zane Lowe and talking about the song, Khalid says, “This one I wanted to do something different.  My mom lives, breathes, sleeps R&B music, so I really feel like this is the ode to people who came before me, and I really love the song.  It reminds me of that Timbaland era and Aaliyah and music just felt so good.  You just wanted to turn it on and just drive just to nowhere. I’m just more excited to see what my fans think because for me they’re the reason why I’m here. I mean they got me here, they got me this far. So I’m excited for them to receive it and just accept the new era.”

Fun Fact: Khalid worked alongside R&B veteran Craig David, who provided the adlibs throughout the song, “Craig is super cool, he’s super dope and we got some of him tucked up in the back of that record for sure, a couple of hidden ad-libs, vocal chops, all that.  He’s awesome. He’s amazing-. He definitely has the ad lib that’s just fly and it’s soaring across the song and I feel like it really makes it what it was in the first place. So I’m thankful that he’s on it.”
