This shimmery track finds Khalid and guest John Mayer singing gentle come-ons to a love interest. Though they are just friends, the pair are crazy about this girl.
Cause the days get brighter when you're here So I gotta keep you near Goin' crazy and I just can't get you outta my head
Khalid and Mayer are so caught up with the young lady they just cannot get her out of their heads.
As well as singing the vocal hook in the chorus, Mayer also co-produced the track and lays down some bluesy guitar.
The collaboration with Mayer was not planned – it happened by chance when they run into each other just as Khalid was leaving the studio. The R&B singer offered to show Mayer some of the material he was working on and the Connecticut musician hopped on the third song he played.
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
