  • Lyrics
  • The first solo song dropped by Khalid following his breakthrough debut album is a feel-good soulful jam in which he talks about a mutual attraction.

    You say that we're just friends but I swear when nobody's around
    You keep my hands around your neck, we connect, are you feeling it now?


    Though Khalid's love interest is telling others they are just friends the singer believes his feelings for her are reciprocated.
  • Khalid's rich, velveteen vocals are supported by Charlie Handsome's sensual modern R&B production. Best known for his work with hip hop artists such as Kanye West, Drake, Post Malone and Travis Scott, Handsome previously worked with Khalid on the Texas singer's hit collaboration with Normani, "Love Lies."
