Official Art for Martin Garrix & Khalid's Collab Leaks Ahead of Release
When Martin Garrix and Khalid teased a collaboration last year, fans got hyped. Then, the collab was confirmed to release on June 15. And now we’ve got the artwork for the collab.
The artwork for Garrix and Khalid’s upcoming collab “Ocean” is…a bit underwhelming. The two are pictured in a nondescript location in front of some bright lights. Khalid is holding his jacket open as if he’s about to reveal his weapons arsenal, and Garrix stands around awkwardly. It’s possible the artwork will tie into a possible music video for “Oceans,” but so far we’re left scratching our heads.
Khalid has collaborated with EDM superstars in the past: with Marshmello on “Silence” and with Calvin Harris on “Rollin.” Garrix is also no stranger to collaborating with R&B icons like Usher and Bebe Rexha. We’re excited to listen to the single when it drops this Friday, despite the uninspired cover art.
Check back in on Friday, June 15, for our coverage of “Ocean”!
Martin Garrix Reveals Release Date for His Most Hotly Anticipated Collab
The Billboard Music Awards were held this past weekend in Las Vegas during Electric Daisy Carnival, offering up plenty of artists for interviews and fresh info while they were in town. While Martin Garrix ended up playing the massive circuitGROUNDS stage at EDC for the second year running, he also talked with Sirius XM at the BBMAs and revealed some titillating news about his next single.
Khalid announced a collaboration with Martin Garrix was in the works back in April, and now Garrix has revealed that the song, called “Oceans,” will officially be out on Friday, June 15.
At this time, there’s no preview or idea of what the collaboration sounds like. But if we know Garrix and Khalid, working together will be nothing short of a #1 hit.
