Zedd’s going urban with help from Liam Payne.

Zedd’s going urban with help from Liam Payne.

Zedd has a song of the summer contender on his hands with his Alessia Cara-assisted single “Stay,” but the producer is already setting his sights on a followup. According to the Grammy Award winning DJ, his next release will feature Liam Payne and describes it as “the most urban-ish influenced song” he’s ever created.

The song has a “Drake-ish influenced sound but very open to something that sounds unique and different.” Zedd adds it’s a good balance between where the former One Direction band member is going with his solo project and his own. “[Liam] really pulled it towards a direction that I would not have and I love where it is… I would say it is probably the most urban-ish influenced song I’ve ever done… it’s insanely catchy.”

Watch below:

In April, Liam posted a shot of himself on Instagram with the caption “The waiting game.” Zedd commented on that post with “the clock is ticking.”

Before his Beats 1 admission, this artwork was floating around Twitter. It’s fan-made, but where there’s smoke… there’s fire.
