Cover artwork for Martin Garrix and Khalid collaboration leaks online
As soon as it was revealed that Martin Garrix was working on a collaboration with Khalid, speculation began to run riot around the track’s contents. The single, which has since been revealed as due for release on 15th June, is titled ‘Ocean‘, and is set to combine the incredible talents of both artists. While sound of the track itself is yet to be revealed, the cover artwork has finally leaked.
Both Garrix and Khalid have achieved widespread success in the mainstream chart, building anticipation around their collaboration even further. Last year, Khalid collaborated with Marshmello on worldwide hit ‘Silence‘, which garnered a staggering 565 million Spotify streams. He also released his smash hit ‘American Teen‘ album, which featured 15 singles, each of which accrued millions of streams. Martin Garrix also released a number of viral tracks last year, including ‘Scared To Be Lonely‘ with Dua Lipa which hit 551 million streams on Spotify, ‘So Far Away‘ with David Guetta, Jamie Scott and Romy Dya, which hit 169 million streams, and ‘There For You‘ with Troye Sivan which hit 354 million streams. This year, Garrix has already won over fans with his David Guetta and Brooks collaboration ‘Like I Do‘, which is currently sitting at 153 million streams. With so many successful releases behind both artists, it looks certain that their collaboration will reach the same lofty heights.
Currently, no preview of the track has been leaked, but that hasn’t stopped speculation thriving. The eerie colour scheme of the cover artworks suggests that the track may have a more atmospheric feel rather than the euphoric, uplifting sound that has been so prominent in Garrix’s latest hits. Either way, anticipation for the release is at an all-time high, as fans eagerly await the chance to listen to what will likely be one of the leading anthems of the summer.
