Khalid has been making quite the name for himself in the music world. Since debuting on the charts in 2017, the critically acclaimed R&B singer from El Paso has notched 20 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.

Sunday (4/14/19), Khalid hit another music milestone that had the 21-year-old freaking out.

His second full-length album, Free Spirit, debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 Albums Chart earning the Americas High alum the first No. 1 debut of his short, illustrious career.

According to Billboard, Free Spirit sold an album-equivalent of 202,000 units.

Notably, Free Spirit is the first R&B album to reach No. 1 in nearly a year. The last to do so was The Weeknd’s My Dear Melancholy EP, which bowed atop the tally dated April 14, 2018.

An understandably jacked Khalid posted a series of super-exited Twitter messages thanking fans and professing his undying love to them.


Khalid's come up is real, y'all. Congrats and mad love to El Paso’s Music Ambassador©
