Today, Khalid releases the BURNS version of his latest single “OTW.” The track is available now at all digital retail providers via RCA Records.
Five-time Grammy® nominated artist Khalid has seen great success since he released his first single “Location” right before his high school graduation. The song’s domination led to Khalid’s major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records followed by the release of his debut album American Teen. The album received mass critical acclaim with Rolling Stone calling Khalid a “pop prodigy” and TIME Magazine stating, ““His thoughtful, relatable reflections on modern youth culture and the limitations of love are just as pitch-perfect as his soulful, measured delivery.” American Teen shattered expectations, as it stayed in the Top 200 for 51 weeks, peaked at #4, and stayed in the Top 20 for 48 out of the 51 weeks it was in the Top 200. The singer-songwriter has over one billion streams worldwide across all partners, his first single “Location” is certified 4x Platinum by the RIAA, and his previous single “Young Dumb & Broke” is certified 3X Platinum. Since the album’s debut, Khalid has garnered five 2018 Grammy® nominations including Best New Artist and landed on the cover of Billboard’s 2018 Grammy® Preview issue. He was also nominated for 2017 BET Award for Best New Artist, a Teen Choice Award for Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song for “Location”, and a 2017 American Music Award for Favorite Song-Soul/R&B for “Location.” Khalid also won Top New Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, Best New Artist at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards and an MTV’s Woodie To Watch Award. In addition to American Teen, Khalid has collaborated with some of music’s biggest stars. He has been featured on a number of songs including mega hits like Calvin Harris’s “Rollin” with Future, “1-800-273-8255” with Logic and Alessia Cara, “Silence” with Marshmello, “Lovely” with Billie Eilish, “Youth” with Shawn Mendes, and many more. Khalid’s current singles “Love Lies”, a duet with Normani, and “OTW” featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 6lack are burning up the airwaves. Khalid recently wrapped up his third sold-out North American headlining tour.
The Stafford, UK-born and raised and Los Angeles-based artist BURNS has quietly become an influential force in pop. Recently, the critically acclaimed electronic producer released his latest single “Hands On Me” featuring Latin music superstar Maluma and famed hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd (Click HERE to watch the music video). The track, which has over 10 million streams on Spotify alone, is also Maluma’s debut English-speaking feature. BURNS production work encompasses the RIAA Platinum-certified “Make Me…” [feat. G-Eazy] for Britney Spears, and 2018 releases for Hailee Steinfeld, Johnny Yukon, Liam Payne, French Montana, and many more. An in-demand remixer, he’s left his mark on official remixes for Lana Del Rey, Charli XCX, Iggy Azalea, Rihanna, and Drake. Simultaneously, he hosted explosive residencies in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and Atlanta in addition to igniting stages at Lollapalooza, Made In America, Stereosonic Festival, Tomorrowland, and beyond. Influenced by everything from childhood heroes Daft Punk to A$AP Rocky and Lil Yachty, he veers between electronic expanse, hip-hop energy, and pop power with ease on his forthcoming first solo album and previous single “Far Gone” (feat. Johnny Yukon), which was his first release on RCA Records and quickly crossed the 1 million mark on Spotify. BURNS’ album is inspired by the culture of Los Angeles—his home since 2014. Capturing this spirit, his “LA concept record” represents the idiosyncrasies and intricacies of the city from the requisite romance and rawness to everything in between. As a result, it’s a “mood board” of the place he calls home. By naturally bringing a fresh vibe to pop, BURNS will resonate far beyond the City of Angels…
