Khaled’s dulcet tones are always welcome. With his upcoming sophomore project Free Spirit a little over a month away, Khalid has offered up an additional look at the album with “My Bad.” Wasting little time in making an impression, the youthful prodigy takes to a swirling, yet delicate guitar arpeggio. The arrangement, while simple in its repetition, allows Khalid ample space to pen an apology of sorts, coming off sincere despite the expression “my bad’s” inherent apathy.
With the addition of subtle “trap” hi-hats, “My Bad” joins the ranks of the recent guitar-craze, alongside hypnotic instrumentals like “Drip To Hard” and “Yosemite.” It’s a good look for Khalid, who blends nicely with the guitar’s frequencies. “Oh, we both care about it, but arguing with me just isn’t worth it,” he sings. “Don’t go reachin’ in your bag, your bag, yeah, I didn’t text you back ’cause I was workin’.” Check out the track now, and keep a lookout for Free Spirit, coming soon.
