Moving on from his highly successful debut studio album ‘American Teen’ released in March 2017, Khalid jus announced a brand new single “Talk” from the sophomore album. And in the new song, Khalid is lovestruck, but not in a good way!

Singles from the album such as “Location” and “Young Dumb & Broke” are marked 5x and 4x Platinum in sales up to now.

The new single “Talk” finds Khalid wondering about the relationship he is in. The relationship started off fine, as per Khalid, but soon turned into a speedwagon. Now he is unsure if they are taking things too fast. He also makes sure to apologize for questioning this, because he admits that he has never felt this good in a relationship.

Khalid asks the girl, or probably thinking out loud, if they should talk first and “figure out where we’re goin’.” The refrain of the song suggests that the singer is conflicted within. These lyrics feel as if he is trying to make him stop thinking this wat he is feeling, because she is so into this relationship, and sounds like he is too.

The soothing music and Khalid’s soulful vocals make this track one to be enjoyed for a long time. Perfect for a roadtrip, don’t you think? Drop a comment below.
