TR&B singer songwriter Khalid has provided us with a soothing and stripped down cover of Frank Ocean’s 2011 song ‘Love Crimes’, filmed in his tour bus with only an acoustic guitar for accompaniment. Currently on tour opening for Travis Scott’s Birds Eye View tour, Khalid has had a huge year, releasing his debut album American Teen and hit single ‘Location’, and this perfectly pared back cover reminds us why he’s one of the best things to happen to R&B in a while. Frank would be proud.
