A mix of sultry and soulful, Sabrina Claudio's "Don't Let Me Down" has aspects of several sides of R&B to please almost everybody. Enlisting Khalid for a guest verse, the two rising vocalists sing their hearts out as they expose their emotions to the listener. Showcasing a vulnerability that he delved into on American Teen, Khalid croons seamlessly alongside Sabrina Claudio as they harmonize throughout the track, introducing a haunting quality to it.
Debuting the song as part of Zane Lowe's World Record of the day on Beats 1 Radio, Claudio told the host that she is quite picky when it comes to her feature spots as needs her guests to have a personal connection to the song. Stating that Khalid came to mind for this selection, the two mesh well together as they appear to be perfectly in sync with each other.
Can I trust in you
If I give you myself

And I've had much to tell
