Downstairs was not just a breathtaking view of Los Angeles but also a big birthday cake emblazoned with an image of a television featuring a picture of a very young Khalid riding four wheeler — a hint at one of the two big gifts Khalid would receive before the assembled party sang him “Happy Birthday.”

Manager Courtney Stewart gave Khalid an orange-and-black 4-wheeler ATV with the singer’s name printed in bold upon it, while RCA EVP of A&R Tunji Balogun and RCA chairman Peter Edge gave him a gold Presidential Rolex on behalf of RCA Records.

Khalid shared a few words on the mic: “I just want to thank everybody who made this happen. It’s been a crazy past few years. I’m super excited for this year, I feel like it might be my biggest year. I love you guys.”
