The famed "Firework" singer is no stranger to the electronic dance music scene, teaming up with Zedd back in February 2019 for "365" before joining forces with him the following year to produce "Never Really Over" from her sixth studio album, Smile. She has also commissioned many major EDM producers for official remixes of her music over the years, such as Oliver Heldens, Joel Corry, and KUURO, among others.
