First things first: congrats and mad love to Khalid on winning Top New Artist at the Billboard Music Awards. El Paso's R&B superstar beat out Camila Cabello, 21 Savage, Kodak Black, and category favorite Cardi B for the honor.

And just like when he won the MTV VMA for Best New Artist in 2017, Khalid was quick to name check his adopted hometown.

I wanna give a shoutout to the city of El Paso, Texas. Shoutout to Texas, shoutout to El Paso. I love you.

Pretty cool, huh? How can you not root for a guy who has nothing but love for a city he didn't even move to until his senior year in high school -- which was only a couple of years ago. There are lots of people born and raised here that don't have two good words to say about El Paso. This guy name drops us every chance he gets. That's freaking awesome.
