While still touring to promote his well-received 2017 debut studio album “American Teen,” Khalid found time to stop by BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge for the second time to perform an acoustic cover of Tracy Chapman’s 1988 single “Fast Car.”
BBC released the video, which shows the 20-year-old R&B singer and songwriter nailing it. His personal take on the song is respectful of the original – not too playful, no over the top vocals, just a pleasant auditory treat.
“Fast Car” is the lead single of Tracy Chapman’s self-titled debut album. The song was nominated at the Grammy’s for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. It also received an MTV Video Music Award nomination for Best Female Video in 1989.
In 2017, Khalid won Best New Artist at the MTV Video Music Awards.
