Khalid - Angels (Stripped) (Vevo LIFT) There are lots of strong songs on Khalid’s ‘American Teen’ album. “Location” has been totally embraced by fans, and “Saved” is occasionally cited as one of the disc’s most passionate moments. But there are some tracks that get overlooked, and our LIFT Stripped performances focus of two of the most gorgeous. The piano and voice rendition of “Angels” is instantly enchanting. As the camera moves around the singer, you can’t take your eyes of him; he’s deep into a from-the-heart church vibe. “He doesn’t sing with power,” says the New York Times about the R&B newcomer, “just internal grace and calm.” It’s seductive, as is his performance of “Coaster,” also from ‘American Teen.’ Here, accompanied only by guitar, he creates a hushed atmosphere that rides to its own hushed beat. BET has deemed Khalid’s music “sultry,” and cited its “Frank Ocean meets Bill Withers vibe,” a wise mix of modern and classic. Our ‘Becoming Khalid” LIFT portrait told the story of the young singer’s rise, his deep connection to his El Paso pals, and how some of their shared growing pains informed the music and lyrics of ‘American Teen.” These Stripped performances bring some of those emotions to the foreground, and were recorded in LA just after we shot Becoming.
