The Rocket Man Has Joined Forces With Khalid And Spotify

Written by Chief Editor.

Sir Elton has released a rendition of Young Dumb & Broke with Khalid.

The 71-year-old has teamed up with Spotify to release two singles, including the cover and his own Bennie and the Jets, both of which were recorded for Spotify live at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

Speaking about his admiration for the younger singer, Elton said: "I discovered Khalid's music a few years ago, and have been a fan ever since. 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."

At the aforementioned concert, at Don Haskins Center, Elton dedicated Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me to Khalid.

Meanwhile, the rising star took to Twitter to share how "crazy" it was to appear alongside his idol.
