At the stroke of midnight, singer Khalid released his sophomore effort, “Free Spirit”, the follow up to his debut album “American Teen”, which was released in 2017 while he was still a teenager. Now 21, the crooner’s latest project clocks in at under an hour and features 17 songs, including the previously released singles “My Bad”, “Self”, “Better” and “Talk.” “Free Spirit” also features a special guest appearance by John Legend on “Outta My Head” and the Father John Misty penned number “Heaven.” Khalid will support his new album with the Free Spirit Tour, a North American trek which will begin on June 20 in Phoenix, AZ and take in 32 arena shows before wrapping up on Aug. 17 in Miami. Rapper Post Malone has knocked himself out of the top spot on the Billboard Hot  R&B/Hip Hop songs chart as “Wow” rises from 2-1 to replace “Sunflower” on the ranking dated April 6. “Sunflower”, a collaboration with Swae Lee of Migos, ruled for 11 weeks and slips to number from 1-2. “Wow” ascends following the first full tracking week of its new music video, which was released on March 19. The clip helped the single reach 35. 4 million streams in the U.S.the week ending March 28, according to Nielsen Music, a 15 percent jump from the prior frame. The rally helps “Wow” rise 3-2 on R&B/Hip Hop Streaming Songs, a new peak. “Wow” also retains the No. 1 spot on the R&B/Hip Hop Digital Song Sales for the third straight week thanks to 23,000 downloads during the week ending March 28.  If that isn’t enough, “Wow” also maintains its upward trajectory on R&B/Hip Hop Airplay, rising 16-14 in its 11 weeks on the list. The track climbs 4 percent to 11.7 million in audience during the week ending March 31, according to Nielsen Music. As “Wow” eclipses “Sunflower” on R&B/Hip Hop Songs, Post Malone becomes the 14th artist to oust himself from the top spot since the chart began in 1958. Needless to say, we haven’t heard the last of  Post Malone.
