Song of the Day #3,483: ‘Young Dumb & Broke’ – Khalid

Khalid’s debut album American Teen was one of 2017’s musical highlights, and its laid-back appeal is perfectly summed up in the video for second single ‘Young Dumb & Broke.’

The clip features the carefree last day of high school (a time from which the 19-year-old Khalid is not far removed), following a wonderfully diverse group of students as they hang out and enjoy the fleeting moments between childhood and adulthood.

The video contains quite a few cameos, including Dennis Haskins (Saved by the Bell) as the principal, Rachael Leigh Cook as a teacher, Kel Mitchell as a dancing cafeteria worker, Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei as the Prom Queen, and Wayne Brady as a janitor in a funny bit at the end.

[Verse 1]
So you’re still thinking of me
Just like I know you should
I can not give you everything, you know I wish I could
I’m so high at the moment
I’m so caught up in this
Yeah, we’re just young, dumb and broke
But we still got love to give

[Chorus]
While we’re young dumb
Young, young dumb and broke
Young dumb
Young, young dumb and broke
Young dumb
Young dumb
Young, young dumb and broke
Young dumb broke high school kids
Yadadadadadadada
Yadadadadadada
Yadadadadadadada
Young dumb broke high school kids

[Verse 2]
We have so much in common
We argue all the time
You always say I’m wrong
I’m pretty sure I’m right
What’s fun about commitment?
When we have our life to live
Yeah, we’re just young dumb and broke
But we still got love to give

[Chorus]
While we’re young dumb
Young, young dumb and broke
Young dumb
Young, young dumb and broke
Young dumb
Young, young dumb and broke
Young dumb broke high school kids
Yadadadadadadada
Yadadadadadada
Yadadadadadadada
Young dumb broke high school kids

[Bridge]
Jump and we think – do it all in the name of love
Love
Run into sin, do it all in the name of fun
Fun
Whoa-oa-oa
I’m so high at the moment
I’m so caught up in this
Yeah, we’re just young, dumb and broke
But we still got love to give

[Chorus]
While we’re young dumb
Young, young dumb and broke
Young dumb
Young, young dumb and broke
Young dumb
Young dumb
Young, young dumb and broke
Young dumb broke high school kids
Yadadadadadadada
Yadadadadadada
Yadadadadadadada
Young dumb broke high school kids

    I haven’t heard this song before, and not really sure I’ve heard anything from Khalid. I kinda like the vibe of this one though.

  2. Amy says:

    I love how they opt to use that opening bit of a principal speaking to the whole school. I immediately thought of Grease; it’s such an old-fashioned notion in the age of text announcements and notifications. I wonder if some schools still use that system.
    Regardless, I enjoyed both the song and the video.
