Khalid Teams Up With Dance Crew in Joyful ‘Know Your Worth’ Video


Khalid touts the virtues of refusing to settle for less in “Know Your Worth,” his collaboration with British DJ-production duo Disclosure. In the new video, the singer teams up with a dance crew, whose joyful choreography peppers the clip.

In the Daniel Russel-directed visual, Khalid delivers the uplifting track’s words of encouragement as he performs on a dimly lit stage. Dancers dressed in colorful garb reenact the sentiments of the soothing lyrics, which address abandoning bad relationships and moving toward supportive ones. “You don’t know your worth/All the things I know that you deserve,” he sings on the chorus. “Say it’s not real if it doesn’t hurt/Find someone you know will put you first/Find someone who loves you at your worst.”

“Know Your Worth” is the Texas singer’s second collaboration with Disclosure, following their 2019 hit, “Talk,” off Khalid’s sophomore album, 2019’s Free Spirit, which arrived last April. In October, he teamed up with Major Lazer for a new song, “Trigger.” The R&B artist also recently unveiled his solo tracks, “Up All Night” and “Eleven.”

vid must be embedded

P!nk debuted the visual for the Khalid-featuring title track from her eighth studio album Hurts 2B Human on Tuesday (Sept. 17).

The moody video features scenes of New York City individuals in their apartments, undergoing the daily stresses of life — fighting with a spouse, receiving an upsetting text message — as well as the positive, like being cheered up by a friend. P!nk and Khalid both make appearances, eventually crossing paths.

“God it hurts to be human/ Without you, I’d be losin’/ Yeah, someday we’ll face the music/ God it hurts to be human/ But I’ve got you,” the pop star sings on the gently strumming chorus before Khalid takes over on the second verse.

Normani Spreads Her Wings With Slinky Khalid Collaboration “Love Lies”


Normani Kordei’s solo career gets off to a flying start with “Love Lies,” a slinky collaboration with Khalid. Lifted from the Jack Antonoff-curated Love, Simon soundtrack, the dreamy mid-tempo anthem showcases her voice and hints at the R&B/pop direction of her side-project. “I’ve been so into your mystery, is it because of our history?” she coos in her opening verse, before joining the “Location” hitmaker on the chorus. “So baby tell me where your love lies, waste the day and spend the night underneath the sunrise.”

“Love Lies” has every chance of being a very big song, but Harmonizers have nothing to worry about. In an interview with Zane Lowe, Normani confirmed that Fifth Harmony is still her number one priority. “I think that we definitely proven to ourselves and the rest of the world that we’ve worked incredibly hard to get to the place where we’re able to really explore ourselves now,” she says of the group’s various solo projects. “And I think that it’s a space that we created amongst the four of us, that nobody else will probably understand.”

“It’s not easily understood but it’s something that we understand within each other and we’re confident women individually and also together but we do recognize that you know at the end of the day none of us would have these individual opportunities to explore ourselves or to show the world who we are, without each other… we’ve literally been through any and everything you could possibly imagine, good and bad,” the 21-year-old continues. “It’s us against the world and that’s together and apart. We’ll always have some place to call home which is Fifth Harmony.”

How far along is her solo project? “I’m in the beginning stages so maybe like 30 percent,” Normani reveals. Listen to the full interview here (Zane also spoke with Khalid) and check out the addictive bop below.

Khalid & Normani Kordei’s Collaboration Is Called “Love Lies”


Normani Kordei first revealed that she was working with Khalid via an Instagram post way back in July, 2017 and then opened up about the collaboration in several interviews. Well, the song finally has a title and a (vague) release date. “Love Lies” is featured on the soundtrack of gay romantic comedy Love, Simon, which drops March 16. It’s unclear if the track will be rolled out as a single before then or be relegated to album track status. The soundtrack also includes new material Troye Sivan and a duet between Jack Antonoff & .

“I have recently been in the studio and it’s been such a spiritual experience, it is like a playground for any artist,” Normani said of her first solo outing in Kode magazine. She then opened up about working with Khalid. “We wanted to create something that our peers would fall in love with,” the 21-year-old reveals. “I listen to our song every day. Issa vibe. But the greatest part of it all is that were genuinely two friends that created something special that were so proud of.” I can’t wait to hear what they come up with.

Issa school day.

Lorde Teams Up With Khalid, Post Malone & SZA On “Homemade Dynamite” Remix


Lorde ropes in a trio of rising stars for a new remix of Melodrama LP highlight, “Homemade Dynamite.” Khalid, who broke big earlier this year with “Location,” is the first collaborator to leave his mark on the track. “I wanna feel the light, pushin’ our limits,” he croons in a chorus. “Unbuckled for the ride.” The 19-year-old then sings about being too high to drive, before joining the Kiwi on the chorus. Next up is SZA, who continues with the theme of recklessness and flawed decision-making.

“I checked your girl at the door, I sent your friend to the store,” the Ctrl singer coos. “It’s only me and you.” Somewhat surprisingly, Post Malone has the sweetest verse. “You’re a runaway train, yeah and you got me so faded,” he raps. “And I don’t wanna chase it. You know I think you’re awesome, right?” Like Khalid and SZA, he then joins Lorde for a sing-long on the chorus. The “Royals” singer hasn’t had a massive radio song this era, but her star-studded remix has all the ingredients a multi-format hit. Listen below.
