It’s been years since Zedd and Maren Morris dropped their megahit “The Middle” and they finally joined forces again. The duo gave us another fantastic collab with their new single “Make You Say”, also featuring production duo Beauz.

Zedd started plotting this song with Bernie and Johan Yang of Beauz three or four years ago. Once they liked what they came up with, Zedd sent the song to Morris and it really started taking shape once she agreed to come on board.

“Maren recorded a demo of it and sounded phenomenal, so I met her in Nashville, and we recorded the final vocal to ‘Make You Say’ and she took the song to a whole new level. ‘Make You Say’ is the kickoff of a new chapter for me and I can’t wait for the world to hear it,” Zedd told Billboard.

Morris said it was “such a thrill ride” to collaborate with Zedd on this track and she especially enjoyed the process of filming a music video because it involved elaborate choreography and animation.

This marks the first collaboration between Zedd and Morris since 2018 when their crossover hit “The Middle” came out. In addition to peaking at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, this song received three Grammy nominations including record and song of the year.
