On the surface, Alessia Cara and Zedd seem make for an unlikely pairing. Cara’s past releases don’t typically incorporate electro-synthesizing or hounding productions, but the the German DJ has made a mastery of teaming up with pop girls and throwing their voices into the danger zone, like Ariana Grande on “Break Free” or JoJo with the semi-unreleased b-side “That Other Chick.” On his new collaboration with Cara, Zedd refines the 20-year-olds massive voice by convoluting it with a robotized parallel and throwing in a generous drop.
“Waiting for the time to pass you by,” she sings. “Hope the winds of change will change your mind / I could give a thousand reasons why / And I know you, and you’ve got to.”
This tune will be massive. Check it out plus the newly-premiered lyric video below:
