Khalid showcases El Paso in teaser video for new EP ‘Suncity’


Just hours until the release of his new EP, “Suncity”, Khalid dropped a teaser video to hype it up — and, of course, showcased some El Paso landmarks in doing so.

The R&B star tweeted the following video Thursday afternoon:

“More than anything in life I want to grow. I want my city to grow, I want my music to grow, I want to grow, I want my friends to grow,” the singer says accompanied by scenes of El Paso.

 As KTSM previously reported, Khalid will release “Suncity” on Oct. 19. The EP’s cover art shows Khalid sitting in front of a home located at the corner of Kentucky and Arizona in Central El Paso.

“The music is bigger than me, the fans are bigger than me, I’m just like…let’s have fun,” he said in the video.

Khalid’s new EP comes just over two weeks after his big win at the American Music Awards. As KTSM reported, the singer took home ‘Favorite Male Artist – Soul/R&B’.

“Shout out to the 915! Shout out to El Paso, Texas!,” he exclaimed before ending his acceptance speech.

“Suncity” is set to drop at midnight.
