New Music: Sabrina Claudio feat. Khalid – ‘Don’t Let Me Down’

Fresh off “All to You,” Sabrina Claudio teams up with Khalid for a rising singer celebration on the loving “Don’t Let Me Down.”

Claudio provides a sultry approach, while Khalid brings soulful vibes over Sad Money’s production. Together, they sing about a budding romance and the chances for disappointment.

“Don’t let me down,” they sing in harmony. “I told you things about me / Don’t let me down / I let you put your arms around me.”

“[The song is] about showing someone the vulnerable side of you and asking them, no matter what you do, just don’t prove me right,” said Claudio. “Don’t give me a reason to be guarded again.”

Additionally, Claudio says that the collaboration came about organically. “I had the whole song written but I was like, ‘This is missing something.’ I’m quite picky with features,” she told Beats 1. “Besides the fact that I want to be personal with whoever I have a feature with, vocally it’s really important for me that it just fits. So Khalid came to mind.”

“I just sent him the song over text and I was like, ‘Tell me what you think. Honestly, I hear your voice on this. If you’re willing to jump on it I’d be honored,'” she added. Khalid knocked the track out the next day.

Up next, Claudio and Khalid will also release a video for the track.

Claudio is now working on a new project, which Sad Money will executive produce. The two also worked together on “All to You.”
