Khalid Shares New Song ‘OTW’ Featuring 6LACK and Ty Dolla $ign

Khalid teams up with his R&B colleagues 6LACK and Ty Dolla $ign for his new single titled “OTW.” On the slow banger — produced by Nineteen85, Idan Kalai and Brian Alexander Morgan — the R&B gents sing about how they will always be there for their love interest.

“Put it in drive, I’ll be outside, I’ll be on the way / I’ll be on the way / You can meet me in five, I’ll be all night, I’ll be all day,” Khalid sings on the chorus.

Dolla $ign adds, “Come with me on this mission (ooh yeah, ooh yeah) / Riding down the coast (ooh yeah).”

6LACK comes in on the third verse. “You tryna make a move / Tonight I got the time, tell me what you wanna do,” he sings.

“OTW” follows Khalid’s duet with Normani, “Love Lies,” which has over 171 million streams on Spotify. It is also his first solo single since 2017’s “Young Dumb & Broke” from his debut album, American Teen.
