Hear This: Khalid - Better


Share This Article:

Since Khalid broke onto the music scene just two short years ago with his debut single ‘location’ that reached 5x platinum in the US, he has delivered a platinum selling debut album, toured with New Zealand songstress Lorde and secured two Grammy nominations in the process.

It’s safe to say the Texas-born singer of only 20 years has had quite the couple of years. 

This week, Khalid has continued his stellar streak with his latest release; the sultry and optimistic ‘Better’. The song strays away from the heartbreak that formed the foundation of his debut album American Teen and instead displays a contentment and optimism about life, with Khalid singing soothingly in the chorus that "nothing feels better than this".  

Khalid’s vocals as always are on form here, delivering a perfect combination of tender emotion and soulful warmth. The song begins with a 20 second instrumental introduction that slowly prepares us for the vocals which begin gently and build to a swelling crescendo at the height of the song. 

So far Khalid has done no wrong; ‘Better’ is a beautiful and tranquil song that perfectly encapsulates that feeling of falling for someone for the first time. It’s relaxing melody is perfect for any study playlist or simply just a chill mix. With the upcoming start of the new school year, this release has come at the perfect time.
