Khalid and Normani's Rick Ross remix of 'Love Lies' is out now
The hit already has 387 million streams worldwide, and with the new remix it is likely to break many more
Let’s be honest, with 387 million streams worldwide, there’s no denying that Khalid and Normani’s song ‘Love Lies’ is off the charts.
The song broke the Top 5 on the streaming platform Spotify's US (#2) and Global (#3) Viral Charts.
Featured on Zane Lowe’s World Record, ‘Love Lies’ also went #2 on iTunes’ R&B/Soul Top Songs chart and #9 on the Top Songs chart across all genres.
Maybe this was not enough for the power duo, since they just released a Rick Ross remix of ‘Love Lies.’ There’s really no stopping their success now. The remix of the single is available now at all digital retail providers via RCA Records.
They performed the hit on the 2018 Billboard Music Awards and the reviews were extraordinary. Billboard stated that Khalid “ignited their performance with a captivating opening verse” and said Normani “cranked up the intensity.” The FADER declared the entire performance was “stellar” while BuzzFeed exclaimed that they “shut the BBMAs down!”
It was not too long ago that the five-time Grammy nominee, Khalid, released his first single hit ‘Location,’ even before he graduated high school.
The song landed him a deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records; the deal preceded the release of his album ‘American Teen.’ It would be an understatement to say that the album was well received by both the audience and critics.
Rolling Stone called him a “pop prodigy” and TIME Magazine said, “His thoughtful, relatable reflections on modern youth culture and the limitations of love are just as pitch-perfect as his soulful, measured delivery.”
In addition to ‘American Teen,’ Khalid has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the music industry. Whether it's hits like ‘Silence’ with Marshmello, ‘Lovely’ with Billie Eilish, ‘Youth’ with Shawn Mendes or ‘OTW’ featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 6lack, Khalid has done it all.
He hasn’t shied away from lending his soulful voice to any genre: be it hip-hop, mainstream pop, or even EDM. He is currently on this third sold-out tour of North America.
Normani’s story is a little different but most definitely as interesting. She is best-known as one of the four members in Fifth Harmony. She was born in Atlanta and grew up in New Orleans before she moved to Houston at the age of 9 years with her family after Hurricane Katrina.
Normani has always been excited about music. She began dancing at the age of 3 and grew up idolizing entertainers like Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson and Beyonce.
Her collaboration with Khalid on ‘Love Lies’ shows us a different side of her musical persona. Billboard remarks that this duet shows off her “smooth vocals,” and Vulture says it helps her “velvety range” shine.
