Khalid Robinson is a singer-songwriter from El Paso, Texas, who has a net worth of $ 2 million.
Khalid Robinson achieved success when he made the decision to upload his music to Soundcloud, which took him to the Top 10 Billboard with his simple “Location”, which became viral thanks to Kylie Jenner. “American Teen”, his debut album, to today is in the no. 1 on iTunes, on albums like “Starboy” by The Weeknd and “Awaken, My Love!” By Childish Gambino.
Khalid began to make music in the winter of 2015, with covers like “Lost” of Frank Ocean and other originals of him that included in the already remastered album.
Khalid was born in El Paso, but because of the work of his (military) mother, he grew up in different cities. He spent 6 years in Berlin, and several others in New York, after returning to El Paso to finish his high school studies; this city is what he sees as home and gives him all the inspiration in his songs. The singer explains in several interviews how difficult it was for him to always be the new one in the school and to sit alone during the lunch hour, which did not happen in El Paso thanks to his friends who welcomed him with open arms in the Border town.
His biggest inspirations range from Alt-J to Frank Ocean, to Father John Misty and James Blake, but his mother’s biggest inspiration is that she always had the dream of being a singer, and risked her career many times for Khalid to have more opportunity to express themselves with their songs.
Khalid sold out all the dates of his “Location Tour” during the first months of this year, visiting cities across the United States and other dates in Europe. During these months it is in his plans to open for Travis Scott on his tour by the United States.
