Khalid released the dark and melodic R&B jam “OTW” this morning (April 20) alongside hit-maker Ty Dolla $ign and Toronto crooner 6LACK. The track’s production is silky smooth as Khalid effortlessly flows along with his crisp vocals. “Put it in drive, I’ll be outside, I’ll be on the way,” Khalid swoons on the hook.
Dolla $ign tackles the second verse with pitch-perfect precision, “drop top the Porsche, put that b—- in sport,” he sings as his signature “ooh yeah” ad lib harmonizes in the background of the foggy track. 6LACK adds a deeper mood to his verse, saying to his girl that he can help her grow as a person, “get away so we can make sense of your life, you was in park but I just put your s— in drive,” he sings in his hushed voice.
While this track is his first solo effort since 2017’s insanely successful album American Teen, Khalid has been more than present in the music scene as he works on his sophomore LP. He was recently featured on singles by Marshmello, Rich The Kid, Sabrina Claudio, DJDS and Imagine Dragons, and his sizzling “Love Lies” duet with Normani debuted at No. 43 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in March.
