Zedd and Liam Payne may have just released one of the biggest songs of the summer. The two hitmakers teamed up in the studio for the dance hall, club-infused EDM fusion track “Get Low” and have a bona fide earworm on their hands.
The sexually-charged lyrics are delivered with attitude by former One Direction member Liam Payne, who sings, “I don’t care to get too loud, sexy, I want you now / Bet I could take you there, whispering in your ear.” Sounding strikingly similar to Nick Jonas, Payne continues to spread his musical wings beyond the pop sounds of 1D.
The pair dropped the audio today along with a number of promo pictures, though neither Payne or Zedd appear in the video. Fingers crossed the two drop an official music video for “Get Low” soon.
Zedd has already scored a huge hit this year thanks to his Alessia Cara collaboration “Stay” (watch here). The producer later hit the studio to write “Get Low,” snagging Payne for the vocals, with Zedd saying the British singer “gave the song a lot of soul and really influenced the song a lot.”
“Get Low” marks Payne’s second post-One Direction single, with the singer previously releasing the track “Strip That Down” featuring Quavo earlier this year. Just this week, Payne dropped a second music video for the track featuring a group of dancers (watch here).
Payne has yet to announce when he’ll be releasing his first solo album in full, but as for Zedd, the German DJ will be playing a number of festivals this summer, including VELD Music Festival in Toronto on August 5 and Chasing Summer in Calgary on August 6. Zedd will hit the road this fall for his tour, which kicks off September 29 in Vancouver.
