Khalid & Normani – Love Lies
Review: “Love Lies” by Khalid & Normani is from the Original Motion Picture “Love, Simon.” A good movie. Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei’s solo debut is a collaboration with Texas singer Khalid. They recorded “Love Lies” for the soundtrack of the teen dramedy movie Love Simon and dropped the sultry smooth track on Valentine’s Day 2018.
The video is slick and simple. I like that! Gotta love Khalid letting Normani out of a classic car with “suicide doors” that haven’t been produced for automobiles in years! As a car nut, I thought that was awesome. Normani is as sexy as the song and these two put together a hot video that I highly recommend.
“Love Lies” arrived at #43 on the Hot 100, making history by becoming the highest debut solo entry on the Billboard Hot 100 chart by any girl group member. The record was previously held by Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland, whose featured part on Nelly’s “Dilemma” debuted at #53.
The song was written by Taylor Parks to a beat courtesy of producer Charlie Handsome. Parks, who is also known by the stage name Tayla Parx, has also penned tunes for the likes of Fifth Harmony (“Bo$$”), Mariah Carey (“Infinity”) and Ariana Grande (“My Everything.”)
