With all the responsibilities that come with being an artist in the music industry, it can be hard for some to find time for love. Singer and Songwriter Khalid dives deep into his relationship issues and insecurities on his new single “My Bad”.
The 21-year-old R&B artist continues to invite fans into vulnerable aspects of his life. On his new track titled “My Bad”, Khalid beautifully captures the emotions that come with trying to make a relationship work while bettering yourself as well. The R&B artist gives fans an intimate perspective into the struggles of his love life through his lyrics:
Oh, we both care about it
But arguing with me just isn't worth it
No, no, no
Don't go reachin' in your bag, your bag, yeah
I didn't text you back 'cause I was workin'
Gave you all the signs
Gave you all of my time, my love
You're followin' the signs
But you're followin' the wrong signs, my love
“My Bad” showcases Khalid’s compassionate and self-assuring mindset when it comes to love while alluding to his busy lifestyle. The guitar-driven track is also accompanied by sweet-sounding tones and a soft base, making “My Bad” a standout single for Khalid when paired with his beautiful vocals.
