R&B sensation Khalid just dropped off Scenic Drive (The Tape), and if you’ve streamed already, then you know that it’s full of romantic, sticky sweet songs that will be in constant rotation this winter. One of our favourite’s is the album’s title track, which sees the 23-year-old link up with Ari Lennox and Smino.
Khalid takes the first verse, singing about how time flies by when he’s with the person who’s caught his interest, then Ari Lennox’s gorgeous voice teases us with fiery lines like “Body drippin’ like a spring when I’m with you / We’re electricity, don’t need no fuse.” Last, but certainly not least, in Smino, who lets us know he’s never been one to chase a woman, and that it doesn’t hurt him to know that some other dudes might’ve come before him.
Elsewhere on his new release, Khalid taps Alicia Keys, 6LACK, Lucky Daye, Quin, JID, Kiana Ledé, and Majid Jordan to lend their talents; talk about a dream collab list. If you need something mellow to listen to the next time you’re on a scenic drive of your own, this is it.
Who has the best bars on “Scenic Drive”? Let us know below.
We’ll be chasin’ a high, it feels amazin’ (It feels amazin’)
You in my ride, we were just blazin’
Under the lights, straight to the ceilin’
Out on my drive, give me a feelin’
