Khalid – Saved Documentary

I spent 90 minutes straight listening to Khalid’s latest single “Shot Down” last night. I was getting ready for bed and since I couldn’t figure out the repeat/loop on my Spotify app from my phone, I would restart the song every time I got down to the last 5 seconds. This isn’t out of character for me. When I get wrapped up in a song, it becomes obsessive. Each time it is played it sounds a little bit different to me. Each time it is played, it seems like the track keeps getting shorter and shorter and I have to restart more often. I’ve been like this since I was a kid. No one in my immediate family has ever been like this towards music the way I have been and sometimes it’s scary, but I actually think it’s kind of funny and interesting. I felt like I was examining every part of this song – every rift and verse and every beat that would make it into a choreography piece that I was dreaming up. I had a busy Monday ahead of me and instead of going to bed early, we listened to this track until 1:30 AM. I woke up this morning feeling more tired than I should be, but we’re still listening to Khalid.

I was first introduced to Khalid this past summer with “Location.” I had watched someone’s video of a piece they choreographed to the song and I couldn’t get it out of my head. Who was this guy? I needed to know more about this voice – and it’s funny for me to write this line because I used to feel this way about artists all the time when I was working more closely with music. I would ramble on and on about an artist or a band that those around me did not care about. Bless those that had the patience to listen. As time went on, more and more of his tracks were released and I loved each one a little bit more than the last. Then The Fader released this documentary on him and about how March 3rd was going to change this 18 year old kid’s life. I believe it. I haven’t been this excited about a debut album in a long time and 2017 has brought us some good albums already with Syd and Sampha in the last week.
