Khalid Premieres New Song “Eleven” on Apple Beats 1
- American singer-songwriter Khalid premiered a new song “Eleven” on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show.
The song is the second single off of his upcoming third album (yet-untitled) following “Up All Night”.
Last April, he released his sophomore album “Free Spirit”, in which "Talk" is nominated for Record of the Year at the 62nd Grammy Awards.
Khalid told Zane Lowe about the song, “I love making music you could drive to, and I feel like “Eleven” is, like, the perfect track to just play on your stereo, grip the wheel of your car and just, I mean, just go where the wind takes you. That’s what this song makes me feel like. This one, I just wanted to do something different. I’m R&B to my core, an R&B household, my mom lives, breathes, sleeps R&B music. So I really feel like this is the ode to, just, people who came before me. I really love, you know, it reminds me of, you know, like, that Timbaland era with Missy Elliot, Aaliyah, just where, music just felt so good that you just wanted to turn it on and drive to nowhere.”
