Why Khalid’s ‘American Teen’ Is an Album of a Generation

It seems like singer/songwriter Khalid rose to fame out of nowhere. However, I’d argue it happened after his release of debut album American Teen back in March. ‘Location’ hit soundcloud 10 months ago and now has over 55 million plays. Just this past month, Khalid held a free concert at the Santa Monica Pier June 22, with over 600,000 fans present. Not only is Khalid unapologetically himself through his music but he also doesn’t shy away when it comes to social media. Though the majority assumes that with an X amount of followers and popularity comes a duty to assimilate to “professionalism” or whatever it might be, Khalid still refreshingly interacts with his followers in friendly and playful manner, completely breaking the “fan” barrier. If his music sucked, this would be exactly why people still keep him relevant. But thankfully, his music doesn’t suck as it holds deep and powerful messages about love.

So why is it that teenagers (and young adults) are finding this kid so ridiculously relatable? What is it about ‘American Teen’ that makes us want to listen to it on a continuous loop? Themes. The El Paso native brings the concepts of love, heartbreak and hope to life in a way no other young artist has managed to do before.

The first half finds Khalid discussing things teens experience but don’t want to admit. Whether it’s that feeling of impulsively wanting to meet someone you’re infatuated with in person instead of throwing little hints via social media (“Location”), heartbreak over someone who you truly believed had better intentions (“Hopeless,” “Saved,” “Coaster”) or lacking financial stability and not caring about it (“Young, Dumb & Broke,” “8TEEN.”) Khalid’s delivery on each track is soulful while clearly stemming from R&B, and 80’s new-wave inspiration- an unconventional combination that works beautifully. His delivery grabs the listener’s attention allowing them to dive into a nostalgic world of an American teen.

In other words, investors are paying far more for Tesla’s future promises than today’s performance by other luxury car manufacturers. Daimler, the manufacturer of Mercedes-Benz, sold more than 2.5 million vehicles last year and has a market cap of about $85 billion. So, although it sells 70 times more vehicles than Tesla, its market cap is less than three times greater.

A research team at the University of Chicago has solved this problem, producing hands that send electric signals to the brain. They've begun with monkeys as test subjects, studying the animals to see how their brains respond to touch. When outfitted with prosthetic hands that stimulate their brains that way, the monkeys respond just as though they physically touch objects themselves.
