Singer and songwriter Khalid embarked on a successful music career at a young age.

The song has been certified platinum by RIAA and has also garnered over 6 million views on YouTube and 17 million plays on Soundcloud, and has been streamed more than 35 million times on Spotify. Khalid won the VMA award for Best New Artist in 2017. His song "Angels" was featured on a 2017 episode of "Grey's Anatomy."
