J Balvin and Khalid have released a joint single, “Otra Noche Sin Ti,” along with a music video directed by Colin Tilley (Future, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Yachty). The song, produced by Lexus and Keityn, is the third offering from Balvin’s upcoming new album.
The track pairs Balvin’s Spanish lyrics with Khalid’s English verses, with Khalid crooning, “Been a while since I’ve seen your face/ When you know it gets lonely in L..A/ Thinking of you every day/ Say the word I’m on a one-way.” The moody, atmospheric music video is set in a mysterious forest, in which the crooners unite for the epic ballad.
Ahead of the video’s premiere, Balvin and Khalid appeared on the YouTube series Released to discuss their creative process and how the two originally met via Twitter.
Last month, Balvin unveiled the single “Tu Veneno,” which also comes off the Colombian star’s upcoming fifth album. His new album is the follow-up to last year’s Colores. A release date has not been revealed, but Balvin told Rolling Stone that it’s coming “soon.” “This new album is all about me,” Balvin said. “It’s the first time I’m going to talk about personal stuff. I’ve never done that before.”
Balvin will also release a song for the Pokémon Company’s 25th-anniversary compilation album, out this fall. “Pokémon is pulling out all the stops for P25 Music, and I’m thrilled to join the program as one of its premier collaborators,” said J Balvin in a statement. “I’m looking forward to adding my own unique flavor to this huge Pokémon party and adding more good vibes to the celebration.”
Khalid’s most recent release was a collaboration with rising singer-songwriter Watts for a new take on the latter’s 2018 song, “Feels.” His most recent album, Free Spirit, arrived in 2019, and last year he dropped a solo song, “Eleven,” (the remix boasted Summer Walker) plus a few collaborations, including “Know Your Worth” with Disclosure, and “Be Like That” with Kane Brown and Swae Lee.
