Kehlani and Syd join Disclosure on a special "Birthday" gift

Universal Music


British production duo Disclosure have released their latest single, “Birthday,” featuring Kehlani and The Internet‘s Syd.

Syd opens the smooth R&B track with her soft and raspy vocals, singing “Oh babe, oh babe, you’ve been on my mind,” before heading into the chorus. 

Meanwhile, Kehlani’s verse is a pure example of her maturity and growth, as she sings about reaching out to an old ex, simply say “Happy Birthday.”

“But it can’t hurt to check up on an ex, not to flex/ But to put the hurt to rest, put maturity to the test/ So I’m callin’ to say ‘Are you okay?’ on your special day,” she sings. 

“Birthday” will be featured on Disclosure’s new album ENERGY, out this Friday, August 28.

As for Kehlani, the R&B singer has been busy in the studio, preparing to release the deluxe version of her #1 album, It Was Good Until It Wasn’t. Earlier this year, SYD confirmed she was working on the follow-up to her 2017 solo debut Fin.
