His latest, “Satellite,” is a hypnotic, ’80s-inspired anthem driven by synths and drums, as he delights in his infatuation for a new flame.
“La, da-da / We’re walking on a line / A line that leads me straight, straight, straight to you / You’re like a satellite / Crossing through my mind / It always leads me straight, straight, straight to you,” he sings on the song’s chorus.
While Khalid hasn’t shared much about a new album yet, he detailed his next era in an Instagram post announcing “Satellite” earlier this month.
“I’m having so much fun with music lately and I can’t wait for you guys to join me on this journey,” he said in the post’s caption. “Every day is a step towards me evolving as an artist, but this one right here…it feels special. I hold this dear to my heart! thank you guys for always holding me down.”
Last month, he teased the song’s music video in a tweet, saying, “I’m shooting my favorite video ever right now and I’m so excited.”
