Song by WATTS & Khalid
Produced by Thomas Doeve
Released: 12 March 2021
After WATTS first released this song during the quarantine period, Khalid listened to it, felt it, and asked to be on it – hence, the reason for this modified version.
Speaking concerning the song to Rolling Stone, Khalid said:
I hit Watts up to tell him how much I loved ‘Feels,’ and we started talking about music and what we were currently listening to and how we were holding up in the pandemic. Over a few weeks, we built a really special friendship that evolved into us collaborating on this new version, which I love so much and is so special to me. I’ve always been someone who loves the art of a collaboration — it’s such an amazing way to expand your creativity and open yourself up to new sounds and ideas.
Also reacting in the vein, WATTS said:
I was totally shocked, Khalid has been an artist that I have always admired, and to find out he was a fan of mine was incredible. I tried not to get my hopes up to much, but all of the stars aligned and here we are — releasing this new version of the song together. It’s been pretty wild and I am so proud of how it turned out.
