Zedd has been riding high on the charts lately thanks to his latest hit, “The Middle”—an EDM-influenced pop production, which combined heartfelt lyrics with powerful vocals. Now, the German DJ’s rehashed his winning formula on his latest single, “Happy Now.”
Featuring the lovely vocals of singer-songwriter Elley Duhé, the bittersweet track asks “Are you happy now?” as it describes a relationship that’s fallen apart.
It all kicks off with an acoustic strum before humming along with a plucky energy. When the chorus kicks in with a cry of “You’re a world away / somewhere in the crowd,” you’ll hear traces of Zedd’s signature production crashing in as well.
It’s not a full-on EDM banger by far, but as most of Zedd’s radio-friendly mid-tempos go, it’s definitely another winner.
