Khalid and Marshmello give us a summer tune ‘Numb’. This is the duo’s second collaboration following the 2017 smash single, ‘Silence’. ‘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.”
