New Music: Marshmello feat. Khalid ‘Silence’
Marshmello and Khalid break the “Silence” with their new collaboration, which blends soulful R&B with atmospheric electronic sounds.
Before the pulsing beat drops, the “Location” crooner sings about his loneliness with a melancholy tone. “All my life I’ve been fighting,” he sings. “Never found the feeling comfort, all this time I’ve been hiding / And I never had someone to call my own / I’m so used to sharing / Love only left me alone / But I’m at one with the silence.”
The lyric video features home video projections depicting a love story. Inside a mostly bare home, moving boxes are stacked up on the floor. Meanwhile, Marshmello’s logo pops in and out with neon-colored lyrics splashing across the screen.
Up next, Marsh says he wants to collaborate with Logic. “Been waiting to get in the studio with @Logic301 for months now,” he tweeted. “He’s busy crushing the game.”
Khalid, who is nominated for Best New Artist at the VMAs, is currently traveling the country on his “American Teen Tour” through Sept. 21.
