At the 2017 American Music Awards, Imagine Dragons and Khalid teamed up for a show-stopping performance. Their live medley proved so popular, the two acts decided to release an official recording of their “Thunder” and “Young Dumb & Broke” mashup. It’s even more fantastic than the live version.
Both tracks did quite well on the Billboard Hot 100 this year. Imagine Dragons’ “Thunder” peaked at No. 4 while Khalid’s “Young Dumb & Broke” topped out at No. 22.
Speaking of Khalid, he’s quickly become one of my favorite male rising artists. I must’ve listened to “Location” countless times this past summer. I’m not alone in thinking he’s fantastic. In addition to this Imagine Dragons collabo, he’s teamed up with Calvin Harris (“Rollin”), Marshmello (“Silence”), Logic (“1-800-273-8255”) and Lorde for her remix of “Homemade Dynamite.”
