‘Young, Dumb, & Broke’ by Khalid is such a good song. It has been in the top charts for a while. If you haven’t heard it already, then go listen to it.

One of the reasons I really love this song is because of how the light beat and voice of Khalid work together to make a great song. Right from the beginning, the beat had me hooked. The beat is very simple, anthemic, and catchy at the same time, making the song very calming and pleasurable to listen to.

Another reason I really love this song is because it has meaning to it. The song talks about high school kids like us today. Most of us high school kids are “young, dumb, and broke,” trying to find a way to live our lives. Khalid tries to get the message out that there’s nothing wrong with that. We’re just young, and sometimes we don’t make the smartest choices. Also, the song is about what he felt during his age at the time he was in high school. He told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the song was inspired by “not seeing love as a commitment at my age.” Also, Khalid says,”It was my expression of just accepting the characteristics I had at the time, and not caring that older people might look down at us. It’s like, ‘Yeah, I might be young, dumb, and broke, but I still have so much love to give.’”

Last of all, whenever I listen to this song, it makes me feel very calm, happy, and want to sing along to it. So, go listen to ‘Young, Dumb, & Broke’ if you haven’t already.
