Zedd ft. Aloe Blacc – Candyman
Over the years, Zedd has certainly become one of mainstream dance music’s most prominent names. From collaborating with some of the industry’s biggest pop stars, such as Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez, to winning a Grammy award for his breakthrough hit “Clarity”, the success of this Russian-German producer so far has been evident.
After touring around North America for his ‘True Colors Tour’, Zedd finally returned to the studio to create new music. Asked by M&M’s to develop a new version of their classic song “The Candyman”, Zedd reimagines the song and gives it his own flavor. To provide the vocals for “Candyman”, Zedd collaborates with American soul vocalist Aloe Blacc, who is notably known for his song with Avicii titled “Wake Me Up”.
“Candyman” kicks off with a piano piece that beautifully transitions into a series of guitar strums. Sneaking into the song are Zedd’s gorgeous melodies, which mesh impeccably with Blacc’s stunning vocals. Following a short buildup, the pop-infused drop then commences and delivers some striking plucks and punchy kick drums. This track may not be your typical Zedd track but this future bass house-influenced rendition of M&M’s classic theme song still sounds refreshing and would be the perfect summer jam to listen to.
“Candyman” is out now and you can purchase a copy on iTunes here.
