"Heavy" feat. Kiiara (2017)

"I remember Chester walked in and it was, 'Hey, how are you doing today?'" Mike Shinoda told Billboard of the writing session that spawned this heartfelt, downtempo pop track from their latest album, One More Light. "And he's like, 'Oh, I'm fine,' and we were hanging out for a minutes and he was like, 'Y'know what? I have to be honest. I'm not fine. I'm not OK. Too much stuff is just happening to me. I just feel underwater.'" The song, on which Bennington shares lead-vocal with pop singer Kiiara, hit Number 50 on the Hot 100.
