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 of 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 of 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.”
