It seems that Eric Nam really does know everyone! He recently posted a photo alongside the upcoming American singer, Khalid, and sparked hopes for a collaboration.
Eric Nam not only known inside the realm of K-pop, he has a strong presence in the American scene as well. His American roots have given him many opportunities to meet western celebrities and bring his unique style of K-pop into a Western setting.
Eric’s love of music and desire to freely produce music has led him to do many collaborations with artists such as Gallant, Somi, Wendy, and Tablo. So when Khalid, an American R&B artist, posted a photo of himself with Eric on Twitter, many fans began praying that a collaboration was in the works.
