Tonight, Khalid dropped by the Mercedes-Benz Interview Lounge at KIIS FM's 2018 Jingle Ball Presented By Capital One and gave us the scoop on his feelings toward newfound fame. During his interview with KIIS FM's Alex, the Silence singer admitted that he is still shook by the fact that he's on the Jingle Ball lineup with other amazing performers.
"It's crazy, a lot of my friends are on the bill."
When asked about his on-stage collab for the song Youth with Shawn Mendes, "Anytime we're in the same place, we have to perform that song because for me that song is so special. One - the process of recording and writing that song has meant the most to both of us. The fact that we get to speak upon our youth. It's such a broad spectrum, its crazy. I just love that song so much."
Khalid laughed at Alex's shock that more music is coming so soon after the release of Suncity.
"The grind don't stop buddy. I gotta keep going!" Khalid said. If you're a major fan like us then just know that we can expect music sooner rather than later he added.
As for 2019 plans, Khalid is all about taking care of himself. "Just having so much fun and remaining free. Learning so much about myself. Hopefully a lot more collabs too. I love collabs because for me - the friendship, you leave it stronger. Working and learning about someone else's mindset when it comes down to music."
He continued, "I'm a student of everybody. I learn from all of my friends. I mean Calvin Harris is amazing, he taught me so much when we worked on our song. So it's just amazing to see other cool people winning."
