Album Review: Scenic Drive (The Tape) by Khalid

Satisfactory, Based on 1 Critic

Pitchfork - 56
Based on rating 5.6/10

Khalid crooned his way to the Billboard charts by insisting just how chill he is. He wants to talk; he wants you to "come and vibe"; his music is shapeless and innocuous, mild enough to blend into any top-hits playlist. A Khalid album is low-stakes by definition. His latest project, Scenic Drive, sets expectations even lower: This is a tape, he proclaims, setting the scene with a gauzy intro that spins the radio dial between snippets of his past hits and ends with Alicia Keys assuring, "We're here tonight to provide the vibes." It's a flimsy premise, one that Khalid and a bevy of featured artists--nine guests in 29 minutes!--fulfill with soft, stolid R&B.
