Everything Zedd does sounds the same and in this case it is ruining a perfectly good song.

Tbh, as a remix, the new "Lost In Japan" version is alright. I miss those old physical singles days when you bought a copy and got 3 or 4 well-produced and interesting remixes and an instrumental version and/or a B-Side. - Of course, the remixes never managed to top the original song and it this case, I agree with DnBLover, it somehow ruins the essence of the song. It got rid off its smooth vibes and it sounds like another Zedd-esque half-baked idea.. I mean, I like it that we got a remix but it's nothing compared to its original version.

Btw, does releasing a remix for "Lost In Japan" mean that it's going to be the official third single taken from "Shawn Mendes"? Are we going to get a music video for the original version of the song?

I've read on Billboard that this the official second single off the album.

I like the remix, it's not bad. I love original more but i'll use this sometimes.

Oh, that remix is so disappointing - i expected much more! I definitely prefer the original. I thought this new mix would be so strong considering the original is already strong and i enjoyed Zedd's last few singles a lot.

I am so confused with all these promotional singles and music videos, etc.
I thought "Nervous" was the second single :D

They've never sent Nervous to radios though. This is getting a proper single treatment. It is confusing with all the promo, instant grat songs with videos, i agree. :D

it's a shame that Youth didn't become the 2nd single, especially after the performances he did for it. Same for releasing a visual for Nervous but it never being a proper single. I am also confused to why the Zedd remix will be the to-go-to version when it sounds so out of place with the rest of the flow of the album, I rather would have had a proper new song by them later down the road. But it is what it is. I really enjoy his album, so the fact this era still continues is positive.

I really like that remix actually, it doesn’t alter the original much but just gives it an extra level. Here for that being a hit.

I like that they've covered both bases with the video, and the transition from the original into the remix is great.

He is so, so cute! I love how his recent videos - this one and "Nervous" - are playing up his charm! If only his music were better.
