Landon Barker on Working With Charli D’Amelio, His Debut Single & More – Billboard

Landon Barker sat down with Billboard News’ Tetris Kelly to talk about his track “Friends With Your Ex” and the fan reaction, working with girlfriend Charli D’Amelio, getting advice from father Travis Barker, finding balance in his life and more!

Landon Barker:
I’m gonna blow everybody’s mind this next year. I’m really, really excited to show everything that I have. Hey, it’s Landon Barker, and this is Billboard News.

Tetris Kelly:
Hey, it’s Tetris with Billboard News, and I’m hanging out with Landon Barker.

Let’s talk about your debut single. What was the inspiration about the song? I feel like that title is real, it’s got some drama behind it, “Friends With Your Ex.”

Landon Barker:
It’s kind of about falling in love with somebody you’re not supposed to, but still seeing things through and having a good outcome.

Tetris Kelly:
This is your first debut single. How was it to, like, kind of go from a personal experience versus being, like, “I don’t want people in my business” kind of a way?

Landon Barker:
The story behind the song was I was in a session and it was somebody that I worked with often. He was like, “Dude, I feel like you keep on writing songs about the same thing. Why don’t we incorporate something that’s actually happening in your life?” because I would always shoot to, like, a song about heartbreak, or a song about a girl or a song about being sad, or whatever it is, like, just, like, very, like, repetitive topics. He actually was like, “Let’s dive in and let’s write something about your life right now.” And that’s kind of how that came to be.

Tetris Kelly:
And talking about mirroring your life, your boo, Charli (D’Amelio), is in the music video. So what’s the reaction been, like the song and the music video and you guys being together like that?

Landon Barker:
It’s honestly been pretty good. I’ve been on, like, TikTok watching it. There’s, like, little clips going around. People were like, “What movie is this from?” So I’m like, “D–n, I’m excited about it.”
