Zedd, who’s now notorious for creating his robotic, spacey, dance style music, has now hooked up with the incredibly sexy vocals of Alessia Cara. I almost can’t even describe how good of a feature Alessia is in this. I mean, dare I say it, her feature is better than the actual drop in the song… Bold, yes – but I give you my honest takes. The builds to the drop are great but I’m actually a little disappointed in the drop itself. That’s my opinion though, so I’ll leave this one up for your interpretation.
Zedd’s production gives us some interesting kicks and snares, tied with unorthodox fills and an almost Ed Sheeran sounding humming in the background. At this point, Zedd knows his go-to, having worked with the popular female artists like Selina Gomez, Hailee Steinfield, Hayley Williams, etc., his mainstream appeal continues to grow and he’s not straying from that. Good for some, “eh, whatever” for others. I’m ready to hear what remixes will top the original. Expect this to be played over the radio waves immediately though. I think this 75 degree day in February calls for this new music though.
