Khalid has had a dramatic twelve months. Having dropped his debut album back in March of 2017, he’s gone platinum, toured the world and been nominated for five Grammys, no small feat for someone whose twentieth birthday was two days ago. Now he’s revisiting the track that started it all, ‘Location’. On tour in the UK, he’s enlisted some British talent for a remix of the track, calling on veteran MC Wretch 32 and girl of the moment Jorja Smith for a new version.
Smith takes on the hook, showcasing her powerful voice while Wretch jumps on the final verse with some heartfelt bars and even tries his hand at singing the song’s refrain. It’s a nice reimagining of the track that’ll no doubt have fans wondering if Smith and Wretch will be joining Khalid on stage at the Apollo tomorrow and Thursday. Listen to ‘Location (remix)’ below.
