“THE MIDDLE” OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED 6X PLATINUM BY RIAA
19 AUGUST 2022 (TORONTO) — GRAMMY® award-winning global superstars and dream duo, Zedd and Maren Morris, have reunited on what is bound to be another chart topping single entitled “Make You Say”, out today. The timeless and highly infectious track, which also includes multitalented electronic duo, BEAUZ, follows the pair’s 2018 collaboration on breakout hit “The Middle”, which was just officially certified 6x Platinum by the RIAA. On “Make You Say”, Zedd and Maren have once again cracked the code for the perfect cross-genre smash designed for mass appeal. Co-written by Zedd, Maren Morris, BEAUZ, Charlie Puth, and Jacob Kasher Hindlin (One Direction, Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa, Maroon 5), in combination with Zedd’s seamless signature production and Maren’s powerhouse vocals, “Make You Say” will undoubtedly be another iconic anthem.
Zedd says, "I started working on this record with BEAUZ about 3 or 4 years ago. We went back and forth slowly, refining the production over the years, and then Charlie and I got in the studio and wrote the topline for the track. 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."
Maren Morris says, “I loved working with Zedd again on ‘Make You Say’ after such a thrill ride with ‘The Middle.’ It’s such a vibey melody and making the music video was definitely a first for me as far as choreography and animation go. The fans are gonna flip.”
BEAUZ says, “Thank you Zedd, Maren, and Charlie for giving us the chance to work on such an epic project. All the blood, sweat, and tears are worth it in the end.”
