Khamari grew up in Dorchester, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston. "The Heat," the followup to his debut single "Jealous," is an ode to the exit from an unsalvageable relationship. Written and produced by Khamari, the song was given a final production assist from his friends Trackside (Selena Gomez, Tinashe, Bryce Vine).
A talented vocalist, pianist, and guitarist, Khamari's music is distilled from influences that range from classic powerhouses The Beatles and Stevie Wonder, to modern hitmakers like Frank Ocean and Kid Cudi. A prominent bass line pairs with laid-back, airy guitar, subtle electronic touches, and a soulful vocal delivery, as Khamari tells his story of needing to get away from someone, without even knowing where he's going. With another high-profile spot on Spotify's New Music Friday playlist, "The Heat" is already making waves for this exciting young music creator, who has found a sweet spot matching organic, chill vibes with pop hooks and infectious beats.
