Nearly 3 months and a few days after Khalid and Disclosure released their epic collaboration “Know Your Worth,” the trio return with the remix to it; an electro RnB ear-worm that talks about finding and staying with the right person that loves you and makes you feel like a real deal, staying positive and refusing to settle for someone who doesn’t value your emotional investment in the relationship. It also talks about finding someone that makes you happy when you are with them.

The remix comes after a strong stream of singles from Khalid such as “Eleven” and “Up All Night”, following 2019’s critically acclaimed Free Spirit album. The pop amazing original was released on the 4th of February,2020 and then just yesterday 23rd a remix arrived.

The American singer-songwriter this time featured Nigerian Afrobeats artists Davido and fast rising star TEMS.  Each of the rising superstars does possess their own signature blends of R&B and soul paired with undeniable influences from their native country (Nigeria). TEMS is an alternative RnB singer best known for her smash hit single: “Try Me”.

Structure:  The remix opens with Khalid’s swooning vocals over layered percussion. The rhythmic rework of the song breathes new energy into the already positive track. Atlanta-born, Nigerian-raised singer Davido comes in after just one minute of the song, delivering lyrics. Nigerian RnB crooner Tems arrives shortly after, using her stand-out voice to echo a similar message. The new “Know Your Worth” remix was produced by P2J with reworked drums and a splash of backing guitar. The update to “Know Your Worth” does deliver a textured production which retains the laid-back feel of the original while fusing elements with fusion of Afrobeats and influences on it hence making it an equally vibrant offering.

All in all, the three minute eleven second play time track sees Khalid lending his RnB to the Afrobeat genre.

Just this week, Khalid was announced as the youngest artiste signed to RCA Records to surpass 15 Billion streams on online on-demand music streaming service; Spotify.

Over time; Davido as an artist has worked with various international acts such as Russ, Clean Bandit, Jay Sean, Summer Walker, Meek Mill and now Khalid.

Khalid – “Know Your Worth” (Remix) ft. Davido, & Tems :

******Lyrics******

[Verse 1 – Khalid]

He keeps leaving you for dead,

I don’t know what you been waiting for

So, you’ve got your love locked up instead?

But somethin’ better’s waitin’ at your door

 

[Chorus]

You don’t know your worth

All the things I know that you deserve

Say it’s not real if it doesn’t hurt,

Find someone you know will put you first,

Find someone who loves you at your worst

 

[Post-Chorus]

Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up,

Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up

Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up,

Who puts you first, find someone who loves you at your worst

 

[Verse 2] [Davido]

It’s been three years still counting,

You in love but still doubting, isn’t he loving you

Omoge, I know you got that man,

Shey e dey do you well, shey ehm dey make you smile?

Shey ehm dey treat you right, are you happy?

(are you happy? are you happy?)

 

[Tems]

You need real, you need love, you need time

And I know that you been gone, you been down, you been trying

I know what you needing,

Find yourself a real thing,

Find yourself a new thing.

 

[Chorus – Khalid & (Tems)]

You don’t know your worth (know your worth)

All the things I know that you deserve (you deserve baby)

Say it’s not real if it doesn’t hurt, (if it doesn’t hurt no no)

Find someone you know will put you first,

Find someone who loves you at your worst

 

[Post-Chorus – Khalid]

Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up,

Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up

Gotta keep, gotta keep, gotta keep your head up,

Who puts you first,

Find someone who loves you at your worst

 

[Verse 3 – Khalid]

Don’t forget the words I said,

Picking you up when you’re feeling down,

You get strung on thoughts left in your head,

When you lose hope, soon you will be found

 

[Chorus – Khalid, (Tems), * Davido*]

You don’t know your worth (You don’t know your worth, worth)

All the things I know that you deserve *you deserve girl, girl*

Say it’s not real if it doesn’t hurt, (doesn’t hurt no no)

Find someone you know will put you first, *Put you first uh, Put you first uh*

Find someone who loves you at your worst

 

[Outro]

Keep your head up, keep your head up

Find someone who loves you at your worst.

As far as really good remixes go, I do reckon you’ll have this track stuck on repeat for a while. As for now, remember to; Always Know Your Worth!
