Right Hand Music/RCA’s 19-year-old breakout Khalid receives a plaque marking the platinum certification of his album, American Teen, inspiring a group of industry professionals to assemble in a room and recall their own teenage years.

Seen noting that youth is wasted on the young are (l-r) SVP Urban Promo Samantha Selolwane, EVP/GM Joe Riccitelli, EVP John Fleckenstein, manager Courtney Stewart, Khalid, Chairman/CEO Peter Edge, SVP A&R Tunji Balogun, EVP A&R Keith Naftaly, SVP Sales Jordan Blaugrund, VP Urban Marketing Shani Fuller-Tilman and EVP Urban Promo Geo Bivins.
