"Falling" is a song by American singer Trevor Daniel, released as the lead single from his debut EP Homesick, by Alamo Records, Internet Money Records and Interscope Records on October 5, 2018. The song was produced by KC Supreme, Taz Taylor and Charlie Handsome. A year later, the song started gaining popularity on short-form mobile videos platform TikTok and subsequently was added on various Spotify playlists and Viral Charts.[6] It is his first charting single on the US Billboard Hot 100,[7] peaking at number 31.[8] On January 15, 2020, a music video was released.[9]

Background and composition[edit]

The song was conceived in "a matter of hours" during Daniel's first studio session with producer Taz Taylor, whose label, Internet Money, Daniel signed to in July 2018. Daniel recalls that they attempted to add a second verse to the song, but decided against it, because "the energy just wasn't the same". The rough cut was released as the official song.[4]
