Since the release of his debut single, “WITH YOU” back in January, Khaid has been the name on everyone’s lips.

So far, Khaid continues to dominate popular conversations with his debut single currently amassing over 15 million streams across all platforms, a welcome feat for any newcomer looking to make a name for themselves. Now, with the attention he’s garnered, Khaid is ready to unveil more layers to his artistry as he gears up for the release of his debut project.

Ahead of this, the singer and rapper has just shared a new record titled, “Ski” a boisterous track which finds him melding R&B sensibilities with gritty Afro-Trap for an enjoyable listen. The record is an honest exploration of where the artist is coming from and what it’s like come from nothing and carve a lane for oneself. Rather than succumb to the hardship of his past life, Khaid sings about resilience, determination, and trusting one’s gut to lead you to success. 

Over the trap beat produced by Mage, he sings “came out of the pocket now we trapping so fresh, I’m just 17 but I got voices like Adele/Yeah, I know I’m wrong but I’m trying to make amends”, sharing with listeners a bit of his backstory while making it clear that he has a bright future ahead of him. 

The record “Ski” arrives today with a Sydney Talker-directed video, which sees the artist and his friends in fast cars, drifting and racing while he performs the record in a colourful and vibrant outdoor space. With “Ski,” Khaid continues to put on display what he has to offer while setting his sights on his global ambitions. We’re looking forward to seeing what the uNder alum does next.
