After JoJo reached out to Zedd to let him know she wants to sing on one of his tracks, the Grammy-winning electronic producer responded no less than a half-hour later with a succinct yet emphatic confirmation. "Let's make it happen," he tweeted.
Perhaps best known for her debut single, the generational pop anthem "Leave (Get Out)," JoJo is responsible for some of the most popular mainstream records of the aughts. After that track entrenched her as the youngest solo artist in history to top the US Billboard Pop chart, she became one of the best-selling artists in the world, releasing two studio albums that went on to be certified Platinum and Gold, respectively.

Collaborative releases with the likes of Kehlani, Griff, Jasmine Thompson, Elley Duhé, and Shawn Mendes, among others, have garnered him a reputation as as one of the contemporary crossover scene's most coveted music producers.
At the time of this article's publication, neither Zedd nor JoJo have shared any additional details about the song in question.
