Best known for his production work for the likes of Katy Perry ("I Kissed a Girl"), Ke$ha ("TiK ToK"), Rihanna ("Diamonds") and Justin Bieber ("Love Yourself"), "Eastside" marks Benny Blanco debut song as an artist. Released on Blanco's own label Friends Keep Secrets in partnership with Interscope Records, the track features duet vocals by Halsey and Khalid.
The song finds Halsey and Khalid reminiscing about a teenage relationship. He used to meet me on the Eastside In the city where the sun don't set And every day you know where we ride Through the backstreets in a blue Corvette Now that they are older and times are harder, the pair look back on their relationship with happy memories. So come away, starting today Start a new life, together in a different place We know that love is how all thes e ideas came to be So baby, run away with me The pair now have adult responsibilities and are stuck with "dead-end jobs and got bills to pay." If only they could run away together and start over.
Benny Blanco, Khalid and Halsey received writing help from Ed Sheeran for the track.
