On Oct. 19, 20-year-old R&B singer Khalid released new EP “Suncity,” which includes seven songs such as title track “Suncity,” a previously released single titled “Better” and two vocal-less interludes, “Motion,” “Vertigo,” “Saturday Night.”

His career took off last year with the release of his hit single “Location” followed by the release of his album “American Teen.”

“Suncity,” featuring Empress Of, starts off with notes of an acoustic guitar and the soulful vocals of both singers followed by a rhythmic beat. The song is a funky mid-tempo bilingual track with undertones of a seductive ballad. The song is “about escaping to El Paso, Texas, Khalid’s hometown where his heart lies so he can leave reality behind.” Genius.com

The following song “Vertigo” is Khalid’s classic style of a ballad in which he has intense thoughts pondering about life: “Are we alive or are we dreaming?”

“Saturday Night” is an acoustic bop exploring what it’s like to be young and confused while trying to find your purpose in the world and continuing to grow.

Next is “Motion,” an R&B slow jam that seems to explore going through the motions of life and focusing on mental health as you continue to grow. As the song comes to a close, you can hear samples of his single “Better” in the background.

His theme for this new era is growth and making music that is enjoyable and relatable.

“More than anything in life right now I want growth. I want my music to grow and represent how I am growing up. Suncity is the start of a new era for me, this music is poured out of me and I didn’t want to wait to share it. I wanted to be able to lie in this moment with my fans and my friends and speak from the heart,” Khalid told Billboard.
