WASHINGTON, D.C. – As incidents of hate crimes continue to rise, U.S. Senators Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine joined Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) to introduce the Khalid Jabara-Heather Heyer NO HATE Act. Khalid: I love Fleetwood Mac, so I definitely play Dreams” in my car when I’m feeling good. I love Panda Bear, he’s dope. The same for Still Woozy. The Japanese House has to be on that best driving songs list. I love driving to Kingdom or think SZA, she’s fire. Frank Ocean. Cool Vibes. And Father John Misty.
But Khalid can’t stay cocooned in romance. For much of the album, he’s out on his own, coping with internal anxieties and external pressures. On American Teen” he had high school classmates who shared his fun and frustrations; on Free Spirit,” they’ve been replaced by business associates with their own motives.
To build the supply of qualified women seeking employment on his platform, Khalid established relationships with every university and college in the region that has female representation, to ensure that educational institutions are aware of his initiative and share new job postings with female students seeking employment. Khalid also provides practical support by conducting weekly in-person workshops to instill positive career aspirations within young women beyond traditionally accepted roles. He reaches graduating female students by organizing job fairs, which bring the companies to the universities, while also promoting internship opportunities. Before Khalid entered the universities, only male students were encouraged to pursue internship opportunities for college credit. He is reorienting young students and introducing them to companies earlier in their college careers.
Khalid: Healthy eating. And I definitely got to exercise to make sure my stamina is up and that I can breathe on the stage. It’s one of my first major shows since 2018, which is crazy. I just want to just make sure my energy is relatively chill, like I’m not psyching myself out and overthinking everything. And that everybody, my whole team, dancers, band, even behind the scenes on tech, I want to make sure that we all go in with great spirit and with good energy. Because if one person is off, then we’re all out of the rhythm and we can’t move the right way.
For many Saudi women, full participation in the workforce remains an elusive goal despite women’s improved education levels. With increased access to modern education, more than 60 percent of university students are women. Princess Nora bint Abdul Rahman University, the first women’s university in Saudi Arabia and the largest women’s university in the world, has had more than 50,000 students graduate in the past decade. Yet workforce participation rates for women in Saudi Arabia remain alarmingly low. According to a 2010 study by Booz & Company, a global management consulting firm, less than 15 percent of the labor market in Saudi is made up of women. Of the estimated 1.6 million unemployed in Saudi Arabia, 1.2 million are women. The vast majority of these unemployed women are highly educated and qualified to enter the job market when an opportunity arises; in fact, 78 percent are university graduates and highly qualified for many of the jobs on the market.

On two successive weekends in April, music fans come to the town of Indio, 125 miles to the east of Los Angeles for Coachella, named after the valley in the Californian desert. BMW i will once again celebrate the #RoadToCoachella as an official partner of the Coachella Valley Music & Art Festival in 2019.

Khalid: Free Spirit to me is no restrictions: mentally, physically, spiritually. Free Spirit is everything that I wish I was, that I’m on the path of becoming, but I’m not yet. The flames winding from the front to the side symbolize drive. Your body, you are the fire. You are the being. For me, the wolf perfectly embodies this picture of fire and drive. It’s a fierce animal, but courageous and strong and independent. So it’s a matching suit for the BMW i8 Roadster, because it’s the embodiment of freedom.
Improving Reporting of Hate Crimes: This legislation will improve reporting of hate crimes by supporting the implementation of and training for NIBRS, the latest crime reporting standard, in law enforcement agencies without it. This will allow law enforcement agencies to record and report detailed information about crimes, including hate crimes, to the FBI. In 2016, of the 15,254 agencies that participated in reporting hate crimes to the FBI, nearly nine out of 10 reported zero hate crimes; in Mississippi, agencies reported just seven incidents in the entire state. Helping law enforcement agencies recognize and report detailed information on hate crimes and report that data to the FBI will help establish a clear picture of the threats that vulnerable communities are facing across the country.
American Teen was an album of earworm pop songs inevitably inflected by hip-hop and R&B, but not beholden to them; its production was both quirky and designed to let Khalid’s vocal take centre stage. A song like Saved still nails the angst of keeping someone’s number on your phone after you have parted, just in case. Much later in the set list, Young Dumb and Broke remains an anthem for being on the cusp of agency, but not quite having the wherewithal to fulfil your dreams. American Teen’s genreless-ness was genuinely radical, and that Khalid is still in there, you can only hope.
As a political cartoonist based online, sharing is essential for Khalid. As a region undergoing massive social change, sharing is essential for the Arab world.
The stage is set for electric vibes: Global superstar Khalid takes his road trip to Coachella festival in a custom wrapped BMW i8 Roadster. In the interview the musician talks about growing up with BMWs and shares his personal road trip playlist.

KUALA LUMPUR: Federal Territories Minister Khalid Samad is unaffected by the unflattering memes the criticism that he is drawing on social media. Listen to and watch the latest from Free Spirit, Khalid’s latest album, out now.
Grammy nominee and multi-Platinum artist Khalid is returning to Australia on the Free Spirit Tour. With his Grammy-nominated debut album American Teen having been certified double Platinum and his new record Free Spirit finally out in the world, there’s no better time for fans down under to experience the El Paso singer’s magic.
Just a few years after starting to use CC licenses, Khalid’s work has been shared by journalists, organizations, and even graffiti’d in Tahrir Square during the Arab Spring revolution. He has been featured worldwide in publications like The Economist, New York Times, Al Jazeera, BBC, and The Atlantic, as well as the Edge of Arabia gallery in London, and done art exhibits in countries like Sudan, Austria, Egypt, and Italy — just to name a few. Next up, Khalid is working on a graphic novel about the history of Sudan, its identity, culture, and traditions.
Khalid could take off in a lot of different directions in years to come, but one label that probably will never be attached to him is hardest working man in show business.” His laconic qualities puzzle some of his elders, who can’t quite figure out how this almost aggressively unaggressive Texas kid became a superstar under their noses. But it turns out that Not Seeming to Be Trying Too Hard is a selling point for over-bombarded youth as well as their stressed elders, and the idea that he’s closer to busting out a figurative tear than breaking a major sweat is a big selling point, unconsciously or otherwise. He’s smart enough to pepper his album and set with a pop song as frothy as Outta My Head,” but smarter in making something like that the outlier in his catalog. Because, at 21, he’s already grasped that slow-core never goes out of style.
The music cushions his unease. It’s a generous album — 17 songs — that rolls along smoothly for nearly an hour, one leisurely midtempo groove after another, while Khalid’s voice conveys far more longing than agitation. He has upper-echelon producers now (among them John Hill, Digi, Charlie Handsome and Hit-Boy), and he’s separating himself from the twitchy, narrow-band approach of the SoundCloud rap crowd. He’s also learning from R&B’s more distant past. On the new album, Khalid embraces a fuller sound that often harks back to the 1980s and 1990s, with pillowy synthesizers, tickling guitars and multiple layers of his own vocal harmonies.
Outside of work, Dr. Khalid enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. Multi-platinum global superstar Khalid is bringing his Free Spirit World Tour to The Garden on July 31 & August 1 with special guest Clairo.
Even in an era increasingly given to out-of-nowhere successes, Khalid Donnel Robinson’s rise from El Paso teenager to international stadium-filler has been like greased lightning – to borrow a phrase from a distant teenaged past. In the spring of 2016, Khalid uploaded a yearning love song, Location , on to Soundcloud – partly in an attempt to shore up his social status before his prom. It was an instant classic of telecommunications-themed romance, in the vein of every love song previously featuring a telephone. Only now, it was about dropping a pin on to a virtual map. Send me your location,” it went, Khalid’s caramelised ache cracking in just the right places. By the time Khalid graduated from high school a couple of months later, Kylie Jenner had tweeted the track. The video for Location included a guide to how to pronounce the noob’s name: Kuh-leed.
Clad in a cosy argyle jumper, chinos and Converse, he has just finished delivering a pair of songs, 8Teen and Twenty One , that mark the distance the singer has travelled in 24 months. At 18, Khalid was still living with his parents. Yours are more understanding,” he notes ruefully (his mother is an army sergeant) on what is still one of his most affecting songs.

Khalid: When I stepped on stage at Coachella for the first time in 2017, I was nervous and it was intimidating. I felt shy. The next year, when I went to Coachella and I hopped on stage I felt confident engaged. I saw the audience and I paid attention to everybody. This year, I feel free and I’m confident I’ll be able to have way more fun. I’ll have less restrictions because I know that everybody out there for my set is there for me and there to support me and not to harm me. Definitely a free spirit kind of mentality. I can’t wait to feel it for myself when I get to walk on stage.
