Khalid can walk that walk… and talk that “Talk.”
The R&B crooner is currently dominating the airwaves with not one but two singles sitting firmly on the Top 25 of the Billboard Hot 100, the benny blanco and Halsey-assisted “Eastside” and his very own “Better” – one of 2018’s Vest Best.
Hoping to continue his dominance, Khalid returns this week with the lead single off his upcoming sophomore album: “Talk,” produced by Disclosure.
The collaboration is a smooth and soulful serenade that evokes feelings of stillness. “I feel like there’s so much love behind the song,” Khalid told Zane Lowe on Beats 1. “‘Can we just talk about where we’re going, before we get lost?’ Definitely the beginning honeymoon stages of a relationship and the song’s just so much fun.”
“Can’t we just talk?/ Talk about where we’re goin’/ Before we get lost, let me out first (Yeah)/ Can’t get what we want without knowin’ (No)/ I’ve never felt like this before/ I apologize if I’m movin’ too far…,” Khalid croons across the dreamy yet steady, buoyant beat.
An anthem for lovers made perfect for windows down, sing-along drives, first kisses and late night strolls with that special someone.
