Zedd and Selena Gomez may be making more headlines these days for all those dating rumors, but the duo did in fact first team up to make and release new music together. And today (Feb. 23), that collaboration, "I Want You To Know" has finally arrived after weeks of anticipation and speculation from fans of both artist.
Penned by OneRepublic singer and prolific pop producer/writer Ryan Tedder, "I Want You To Know" feels familiar for Zedd, ebbing and flowing in the same way as his Hayley Williams collaboration "Stay the Night," with the verses building up slowly and carefully to a chorus that eventually explodes with loud singing from Gomez and then, a round of synth beats ready for any nightclub.
Though Zedd comes in strong with the beats and stunning production, Gomez shows up strong for "I Want You To Know," once again showing her growing mature vocals, all while exuding plenty of cool energy.
"I want you to know that it's our time / You and me bleed same light / I want you to know that I'm all yours / You and me run the same course / I'm slipping down a chain reaction / And here I go / And once again I'm your infractions / It pulls me down low," she sings in the chorus, with planned yet peppy purpose.
The duo's real life chemistry is present in "I Want You To Know," with Gomez's voice weaving perfectly through the beat, and it's a wonder why she hasn't ventured much into the world of EDM before.
