"Eastside" is a song by American music producer Benny Blanco and American singers Halsey and Khalid.[1] The song was released on July 12, 2018 as Blanco's debut single.[2][3] The single debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 in the issue dated July 28, 2018, at number 56,[4] and has since entered the top 40 on the chart. Outside of the United States, it reached number one in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Ireland, and the top 10 in Australia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Scotland, and Singapore, while reaching the top 20 in Canada and Germany.

Composition[edit]

"Eastside" is originally in the key of A major, with a tempo of 88 beats per minute and a chord progression of Fm–E–A–D–E.[5] The song is musically based around a "hazily" plucked guitar riff.[1] Lyrically, "Eastside" discusses the development and complexities of a forbidden romantic relationship.[3][6]

Blanco premiered the song on July 12 on the Beats 1 station on Apple Music, in an interview with Zane Lowe.[6] The song was then released for streaming and as a download, and the music video was released on the same day.[4][6]
