Exclaim!

Khalid delivers something to tide you over; Suncity is awash in that same energy that has kept him in the musical conversation.

HipHopDX

The breezy record captures euphoric feelings of new love butterflies across a soundscape of downtrodden piano chords and uplifting vocals.

Pitchfork

The latest EP from the versatile young singer is a harmless taste of pop-inflected R&B, a style in which Khalid sounds largely unremarkable.

Rolling Stone

Suncity covers some of the same ground as American Teen, but with less exuberance. These tracks tend to sound similar.

Vertigo's unironically pretty good. You could pretty much sleep to the rest, that's how nondescript it is.

Literally a despacito copy in this ep

Okay

I don't know. I guess I didn't really connect with this as much as I wanted. Most of his songs anyway sound the same, and although I really fuck with the vibe, I feel like this EP could've been better executed. But hey, it's a collection of ideas, so you gotta give it that.

This honestly makes American Teen sound like one of the greatest parties in your life, and American Teen was already dull enough! Might as well attempt to rip-off every pop and rnb hit song over the past year while you`re at it. Oh wait, they already did, and it's unfortunately not good! For something named Suncity, it feels like I warped into a universe where the sun doesn't exist.

Good guy Khalid looking out for these girls (more than their parents do), delivering this silent message in a very subtle manner.
