R&B artist Khalid has come a long way from his hometown of El Paso, Texas, earning Grammy nominations for his critically-acclaimed debut American Teen, but he hasn’t forgotten his roots — he dedicates his new single “Better” to his Texan hometown.
“With love, to the 915,” he writes on the cover art. The song is a soulful groove that has Khalid reflecting on a new relationship, singing “Nothing feels better than this.”
The song comes after Khalid received the key to his hometown. “This is such a huge honor,” said Khalid. “It’s truly nothing I would’ve ever imagined. Never really felt like I belonged or had a home before I moved to El Paso.”
In related news, Khalid and Normani’s hit single “Love Lies” is now No. 1 on pop radio.
