As the lead single from his sophomore full length Free Spirit, Khalid teams up with Disclosure to create “Talk.” As a testament to its mass appeal, the song careens up the Billboard Top 50 from #40* Hot Shot Debut to #27* Power Pick to #20* on the latest Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.
The original recording sees the 21-year-old phenom pumping the breaks on a new relationship as he tries to understand what’s going on, singing “I’ve never felt like this before/I apologize if I’m movin’ too far/Can’t we just talk? Can’t we just talk?/Figure out where we’re goin.” Embed from Getty Images
In addition to the RCA Records-released title receiving a stellar VIP remix by the Grammy nominated English electronic duo, Disclosure, “Talk” enjoys additional remixes from Alle Farben, who turned the classic R&B track into a breezy house tune that, in an interesting twist, incorporates horns into the production alongside Khalid’s distinct voice. Listen to the newest take on this week’s #20* charter.
