Up-and-coming R&B singer Sabrina Claudio released a new single this week, and this time, she’s not alone. The 21-year-old singer is joined by teen sensation Khalid, the 20 singer from Georgia who’s 2017 debut American Teen went platinum.
According to Claudio, she was working on the song in the studio but felt something was missing. She sent Khalid a text that read, “Honestly, I hear your voice on this.” Khalid didn’t make her wait for a reply; he was in the studio the next day writing his own verse for the song, and in just an hour or so they put the finishing touches on their vocals.
The new single is called “Don’t Let Me Down,” and it combines an upbeat driving rhythm with sexy, romantic lyrics that burn with passion. Khalid is the perfect vocal companion for Claudio’s voice, and their harmonies blend in sensual rhythm.
The single is a fine testament to Claudio’s artistic instincts. She felt her song needed something more to truly elevate it, and her first thought was a duet with Khalid. Her intuition was clearly correct. The two singers’ voices go together perfectly, and the whole song has a pleasant vibe, at once romantic and energetic.
If you haven’t listened to the collaboration yet, give it a spin. It’s a great track from two up-and-coming R&B singers, and is sure to be a hit. A music video for “Don Let Me Down” hasn’t been released yet, but one does appear to be in the works.
