Khalid, 6lack & Ty Dolla $ign's "OTW" Heats Up Summer Nights
On July 3 the Calmatic-directed music video for "OTW" was released by Khalid, featuring 6lack and Ty Dolla $ign. The audio was released on April 20 and the song's retro-R&B plus trap mood finds a visual home, clarifying that this is not a song about a cold-blooded booty call.
Full of contagious, authentic smiles, the video makes this hypnotic song even more appealing by creating a party atmosphere that uplifts the hot summer night mood to a rare level, giving "OTW" a shot at growing into a summer hit.
Coming into 2018 with five GRAMMY nominations and a hit debut album, Khalid's one-offs and collaborations have been incredible, which is why two of his noms were for the anti-suicide side-project "1-800-273-8255" with Logic and Alessia Cara. The song made it to No. 3 on Billboard's Hot 100, Khalid's highest ranking track so far.
Back in May, "OTW" reached No. 57 on the Hot 100. Whether its happiness-inducing video kicks its chart-rank out of Park and back into Drive or not, there's a good chance it'll add smiles to your July.
