El Paso R&B soul wunderkid Khalid seems to be popping up all over the place these days, and it’s probably safe to say he’s one of the most exciting figures in the scene right now. Khalid makes his latest appearance on Alina Baraz’s heralded return, Electric, and the track couldn’t have been anointed a more fitting name. Electric, though downtempo sparse and dispersed, is a shockwave of sensual luscious electro R&B. Khalid’s crackling, simmering voice is the perfect companion to Alina Baraz’s supple angelic elegance. Despite her long period of silence prior to this single’s arrival, the wild buzz surrounding Alina Baraz has not lost any of its intensity. Her return to San Francisco in late March and early April sold out within minutes, and I was one of the poor souls to have missed out on my chance to snag golden tickets to see her live yet again. Stream or purchase Electric from major services, here.
