2017 has been the year of Khalid. His debut album American Teen went Platinum. He’s toured the US to adoring crowds. He’s worked with some of the biggest names in music. He’s nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammys. To cap off this incredible year, Khalid has shared a music video for “Saved,” the latest single from American Teen.
The title of “Saved” comes from Khalid keeping an ex’s number saved in case she ever comes back. In the video, set in a lovely tropical seaside town, he wanders the streets alone. It wasn’t always that way, though. We also see his memories of his time with his ex. It’s bittersweet watching their chemistry knowing that it’s over, and the visuals enhance the song in a meaningful way.
Watch Khalid’s video for “Saved” above. If you haven’t listened to American Teen yet, do that, too. After the year he’s had, Khalid is here to stay.
