"Silence" is a song by American music producer and DJ Marshmello, featuring guest vocals from American singer-songwriter Khalid. Written and produced by Marshmello, with additional writing from Khalid, it was released by RCA Records on August 11, 2017.

Background[edit]

On August 1, 2017, Marshmello made a surprise performance at a Khalid concert, hinting at an upcoming collaboration.[1] On August 7, 2017, Marshmello first teased the single release with a photo of him and Khalid, captioning the single's title and release date.[2][3]

Critical reception[edit]

David Rishty of Billboard described the song as "a rumbling dance ballad that has the ingredients to take both acts to new heights in their flourishing careers". He opined that Khalid delivered "crooning, soulful vocals", while Marshmello's production is "vibrant" and "asserts simplicity, yet purpose".[4] Erik of EDM Sauce called the song "an incredibly powerful track", and described Khalid's vocals as "booming and impressive". He wrote that "after the intense build up and lyrical perfection from Khalid we wanted an equally as impressive drop", but "we did not find it".[5] Alex Ross of Vice called the song "a good Marshmello song", and wrote that Marshmello "cheated by getting Khalid to do the vocals". He thinks that it "sounds a bit like" Major Lazer's collaboration with Justin Bieber and , "Cold Water".[6] Rolling Stone wrote that the song has "shifting, snapping synths".[7] Rap-Up felt that the song "blends soulful R&B with atmospheric electronic sounds".[8] Broadway World described Khalid's vocals as "strong emotive", and thinks that Marshmello "adopted a slower tempo than his usual upbeat productions to give the release a silky smooth feel, before launching into a his instantly recognisable chord-based drop".[9]
