Khalid is an American rapper who's becoming a household name. Bursting on the scene in 2015, the 19 year old rapper has made waves with his unique sound. His big hit Young Dumb and Broke has been viewed over 450 million times making him one of the most viewed rappers of the year. It's a pretty big accomplishment for someone so young and new to the scene. So it's no doubt Khalid is a hot item and that showed over the weekend.
On Saturday night, CBS Radio invited all sorts of celebrities to play at the Hollywood Bowl for the We Can Survive concert, to raise awareness for breast cancer. Performers included Pink, Sam Smith, Harry Styles, and Lorde; but right now everyone is trying to be best friends with musician Khalid. I mean do you blame them? He's a cool guy who's only moving up in the world. Just look at this incredible selfie he took with Harry Styles:
And Sam Smith also jumped onto Twitter just to say how dope Khalid is. He must be so nice in the green room! We gotta admit we're a bit jealous but it's nice to see mainstream artist embrace Khalid cause his talent is so huge.
The other appearance that had everyone freaking out was both Harry Styles and his One Direction bandmate Niall Horan on the same stage again, though sadly not at the same time. Both performed, but not together, though Horan called Harry "brother Harold" on Twitter later that weekend. Pretty cool.
Which caused everyone to ask where the dang pics are. We demand to see the full sets!
You can't force friendships, even between your favorite celebrities. Let things take their course but we're excited to see if this leads to any sort of collaborations.
