Khalid – “Shot Down” (Video)

blame it on Patrick Glynn February 9, 2017

There’s an innocence surrounding Khalid’s music. It’s partially in the fact he’s 18 years old, but as you delve more into his life — through songs and documentaries — you realize the love and care he has for people is rooted in youth.

“Shot Down is a very personal record for me and I really feel as if moments like this video are only the beginning of what’s yet to come,” he told The FADER, who premiered the video for “Shot Down,” one of his most heartfelt and gorgeous tunes yet.

Kids — some friends, some maybe in love — skate down alley ways, play fight, browse their phones as the El Paso native, sitting lonely in a bus, sings about being jolted with love and unable to escape it.
