Elton John has offered up a new take on Khalid’s “Young Dumb & Broke” which he performed live during his Las Vegas residency with Khalid himself providing vocals.

The R&B singer’s 2017 hit gets a new spin in the newly released track, recorded for Spotify Singles, with John’s piano skills and a new beat giving it a trademark ballad-like feel.


“I discovered Khalid’s music a few years ago, and have been a fan ever since,” said John in a statement. “We finally met when I played his home town of El Paso last year. It’s a thrill to be a small part of any new artists’ journey, and it’s been wonderful to see his star continue to rise and rise. ‘Young Dumb & Broke’ is a fabulous song, one of my favourites and I’m really pleased that he liked my cover enough to contribute vocals.”


The “Young Dumb & Broke” cover is joined on the two-track single by a new recording of “Bennie and the Jets” that was likewise recorded for Spotify at the Colosseum in Las Vegas. JB
