Marshmello and Khalid “find peace in your violence” on new track “Silence.”
The EDM producer collaborated with the singer and songwriter to bring this track to life. “Silence” was released on August 11 after Marshmello had teased it by crashing a Khalid concert on August 1. The dance ballad was dropped with a lyric video that features stacked boxes with projections of different imagery intermingled with a few shots of the famous Marshmello head.
The track received positive critical recognition broadly; Vice called it a “a good Marshmello song,” Rap Up felt that “Silence” “blends soulful R&B with atmospheric electronic sounds” while Rolling Stone praised the “shifting, snapping synths.”
