In the lead-up to Toosii’s new album, NAUJOUR, slated to debut June 2, Khalid has joined the singer for the official remix of “Favorite Song.”
“Favorite Song” is the 23-year-old’s first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100. On the remix, the duo intertwines Khalid’s crooning with Toosii’s vocals to create an R&B song reflecting on the anguish of heartbreak as someone aching for peace.
“[Khalid] has such a dope and unique voice, and I think it really takes an already amazing song to the next level,” Toosii said in a news release. “Hope y’all enjoy!”
Toosii initially gained attention back in 2020 when he signed with Capitol Records. He also joined South Coast Music Group, a Charlotte-based company home to several other North and South Carolina natives such as Blacc Zacc, DaBaby and TiaCorine.
Back in 2021, the platinum-certified artist released the 13-song album Thank You For Believing, which featured Key Glock, Latto and DaBaby. Then, Boys Don’t Cry: Men Do dropped last November.
Since then, the “Love Is…” singer has shared hits like “Magic Stick” and a remix of “Snooze” by SZA. In 2022, he closed out his Beautiful Mind Tour with supporting act Rod Wave and opener Mariah the Scientist.
In an early roundup of contenders for “Song of the Summer 2023,” Billboard wrote, “Toosii has a bonafide solo hit on his hands… the woozy R&B hook of ‘Favorite Song’ is definitely worthy of a breakthrough moment.”
Born Nau’Jour Lazier Grainger, the New York native is known for telling brutally honest stories of street life and heartbreak, detailing his journey from a lost kid to a worldwide sensation.

Following his recent success, Toosii plans to travel for his The Favorite European Tour, which kicks off May 10 in Cologne, Germany. Seven dates will be available, after which the tour will conclude May 19 in London.
Toosii and Khalid’s “Favorite Song” (Remix) is available to stream everywhere. NAUJOUR debuts on June 2.
