This sounds like an interesting combination - will have to see what he does with Maren!

It sounds a bit like Stay 2.0 but this Maren girl's voice is incredible here.

This is quite good, though it sounds similar to "Stay" and i also can hear "Turn Me On" by Kevin Little or so (don't remember his name exactly but i think it's that song i hear in the pre-chorus...)

Hope it's a hit for Zedd & Maren :)

I can definitely hear the comparisons but this is less annoying than Stay was on first listen. It's also the first time I'm hearing the vocalist and she's got some decent pipes!

Wow, this is indeed very similar to Stay. C'mon Zedd!

Even though the vocals are good, he's somehow made Maren Morris' vocals fairly indistinct and generic dance vocalist-esque.

Same here. 'Get Low' deserved so much more.

It really is.

I wanted another Starving.

Zedd definitely needs another Get Low to his name for me.

Finally a vocalist who has some pipes. 8-)

Is Maren going to do a Taylor and convert herself from a country starlet to a pop princess?

Not the biggest fan - and I do agree, its almost just a rehash.

^ Oh wow! Never expected that. Good for him, but hopefully the follow-up single will be more interesting again.

Better than Stay but obviously worse than Get Low

They had a commercial during the Grammys for this song - a super long commercial for Target that featured the entire song, so that is why it got such a boost on iTunes.

I just read this article that indicated that a dozen female singers recorded a demo of this last year and passed this around before Marren ended up recording the final version.

That is a great article. Really gives you an insight into how the music industry works.
But definitely disappointed that Zedd didn't even write the song...

This girl has pipes and brings a great vibe to the song. Probably better than all the other ones indeed.
