Khalid and Marshmello give us a summer tune ‘Numb’. This is the duo’s second collaboration following the 2017 smash single, ‘Silence’. It achieved 2 billion streams globally and reached 6x platinum.
The song is accompanied by a music video directed by Christian Breslauer. In it, Khalid’s daydream transports him poolside. There, the singer and Marshmello chill before they eventually get a dance party started in a tent. “I, I wanna get numb/And forget where I’m from,” Khalid sings on the hook of the instantly catchy song. “’Cause lookin’ in your eyes/Like lookin’ at the sun.”
‘Numb’ has saccharine whistles and a bouncy bassline. Khalid’s smooth vocals very effortlessly glide onto the beat of the track.

“Me and Khalid always talked about doing another song, so I sent this idea to him and he loved it,” Marshmello said about “Numb” in a statement. “I was super happy when I asked him if he wanted to do the song and he said yes because the song is a little different vibe for him, but I knew he would crush it. He sent it to me the next day and I immediately knew we had one with this.”
“Mello and I have a great friendship, and when we get together to make music, it’s always great vibes,” Khalid added. “’Silence’ is a fan favorite that I love performing, so continuing our collaborations with ‘Numb’ is something that I’m looking forward to.”
Marshmello’s previous album ‘Shockwave’ came in June 2021 whereas Khalid dropped the video for ‘Last Call’ in March. This was following the release of his late-2021 mixtape, ‘Scenic Drive’. The Grammy-nominated singer’s third album, ‘Everything Is Changing’, has been delayed from its planned release in 2021, according to Rolling Stone.
