Khalid, the acclaimed R&B sensation, has delivered a fresh musical gem featured on the newly released Barbie soundtrack – “Silver Platter.” Collaboratively written and produced by Chase Worrell, Denis Kosiak, and Jason Kellner, the track exudes a lively piano-based production, blending elements of bubbly pop and soulful R&B.
In “Silver Platter,” Khalid takes on the role of a pursuer, aiming to prove himself as the perfect match for a potential partner. He seeks to offer them everything they desire and more, but it’s no easy task as they prove to be a formidable challenge in matters of the heart.
With emotionally resonant lyrics like, “Fighting for affection from you never been easy / Giving me impressions that I gotta work hard / If I could pick you up, we’d be in Malibu, speeding / You show me directions, still I don’t know where you are,” Khalid skillfully conveys the complexities of pursuing this love interest.
The captivating song finds its place on the musical compilation accompanying Greta Gerwig‘s Barbie movie, currently gracing theaters. Titled Barbie The Album, the soundtrack boasts an impressive array of features, including Lizzo, Nicki Minaj, Ice Spice, Sam Smith, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Tame Impala, and other notable artists.
“Silver Platter” marks Khalid‘s second solo musical release this year, following the previously released “Softest Touch” in March. This new offering is a tantalizing preview of Khalid‘s highly anticipated third album, set to make its appearance soon. His fans eagerly await the album, which will also include other noteworthy tracks like “Satellite” and “Skyline,” both released last year.
As Khalid perfects the finishing touches on his upcoming album, he has continued to showcase his versatility by making featured appearances. Notably, he collaborated with fellow artists Toosii, Kiana Ledé, and Bree Runaway on various tracks.
Khalid‘s exceptional collaboration with Alicia Keys on “Come For Me,” featuring Lucky Daye, reached the pinnacle of success, securing the top position on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart for the fourth time and dominating R&B radio charts.
