"You and me run the same course."
Zedd and Selena Gomez are so in sync in their first collaboration, "I Want You To Know." The producer recruited the singer for the EDM love song, but unlike many of his other team-ups, this one is personal. The real-life couple released their dancey collaboration late Sunday night while the world was in Oscar Land.
The production is signature Zedd, with a slow buildup to gigantic parallel chords. And it wouldn't be a dance track if there weren't those house claps and throbbing bass. As for Selena, she's been moving closer and closer to EDM for a while -- her last album was Stars Dance, a collection of electronic tracks like "Slow Down," an oft-remixed club song -- so her voice fits in perfectly. She sings of a synchronized relationship -- one where both people are on the same level.
"I want you to know that it's our time/ You and me bleed the same light," Gomez sings. "I want you to know that I'm all yours/ You and me, we're the same force."
Unlike Gomez's last release, "The Heart Wants What It Wants," this new track is jubilant and devoid of regret. It's happy. And hey, wouldn't that make you want to dance too?
