“Favorite Song” was already a certified solo hit, landing as Toosii’s first Billboard Hot 100-charting single. On the remix, the duo takes it up a notch, intertwining Khalid’s crooning vocals with Toosii’s own poignant musings.
“I’m on the stage right now / Singing your favorite song,” Toosii sings in the chorus. “Look in the crowd / And you’re nowhere to be found as they sing along.”
An R&B song reflecting on the woes of heartbreak, the resulting collaboration is a series of layered, drawn-out vocals, subtly punctuated with the tapping of drums.
“I’m excited to have Khalid join me on this track,” Toosii said about the collaboration. “He has such a dope and unique voice and I think it really takes an already amazing song to the next level. I’ve been wanting to collab with him on the right track for a while and I think we picked the perfect one.”
