Zedd and Liam Payne found themselves “getting low” in London, the duo having recently performed a surprise live rendition of their celebrated collaboration in the streets of the UK. Sporting backpacks equipped with speakers, Liam sang into a mic as Zedd played a keyboard, the pair setting out to London’s most populated areas to perform “Get Low” as cameras filmed their live appearance.
When it comes to the fans featured in the video, it seems that there is indeed such a thing as being “in the right place at the right time.”
One-hit wonders are a common phenomenon in the music business, and most of them have a fan base that insists their other songs are just as good. It’s rarer, though, to see a well established band break through with a surprise pop hit more than a decade into its career, “She Don’t Use Jelly” style. More »
I really cannot decide if this story is super wholesome or kind of weird. We came across this tweet of the moment when Zedd gave away his shoes to a fan in the crowd. Zedd performed on Good Morning America at Central Park in New York City yesterday (July 21st) alongside Liam Payne and Alessia

Song of the week:
Zedd WITH Liam Payne — ‘Get Low’
As we mentioned yesterday this is a banger and a half — the drums into the chorus really make it — even if we could, quite frankly, do without Liam chatting about liking “the way you touch yourself”.
Wrong of the week:
AlunaGeorge — ‘Turn Up The Love’
You would think, wouldn’t you, that after the last album Didn’t Exactly Set The World On Fire it might be time for AlunaGeorge to take a left turn and explore or develop a new sound that would mirror without replicating the idiosyncratic feel that made their initial appearance so exciting. That takes time and effort though so instead they’ve done something that sounds like everything else on Spotify, and they’ve even chucked in the year’s weakest “HEY!” sound to top things off. Big artists have delivered a fair few “oh well” moments in the last year but this is one of the most regrettable.
- There are two summer-referencing songs in this week’s playlist — Sigrid Bernson’s ‘This Summer’ slightly trumps Deepend and Graham Candy’s ‘Waiting For The Summer’.
- Good to have Bacall back in the playlist — last summer, you’ll remember, he delivered a truly ludicrous cover of Toto’s ‘Africa’ but ‘Breaking The Wave’ is more acceptable in about twelve different ways.
- Capital Cities’ ‘Girl Friday’ is quite bonkers but worth a listen for the dubilarious way in which Rick Ross finishes his guest spot.
- Felix Pallas’ ‘Similarities’, the first release on Disco Naivete’s new label, is very enjoyable.

Tropical meets pop meets dance in Zedd’s latest song “Get Low” featuring the vocal stylings Liam Payne. The upbeat track is another surefire hit to add to Zedd’s collection of pop collaborations gone right. Payne’s vocals carry the song, and the drop is fitting for club play or as background music in a retail store. Zedd spoke to Beats 1 about the track, and commented “it’s the definition of a summer song to me, personally” and added that it has an urban, “Drake-ish influenced sound.” Zedd describes it as a balance between Payne’s solo work and where he’s headed with his own music.
Zedd has been quite a visible force throughout the duration of 2017. The megastar first made headlines for pledging to host an ACLU benefit concert after the president was elected. His next step was a collaboration with young pop star Alessia Cara for one of the biggest crossover hits of the year, “Stay,” which quickly climbed to the top of charts and has earned roughly 300 million Spotify streams to the current day.
The producer certainly has a well-calculated strategy; after announcing a fresh tour across North America, Zedd is now coupling this announcement with another bomb. As it turns out, he’s been spending time in the studio with One Direction member Liam Payne and they’ve since produced a track together. In fact, it’s going to be released in the very near future on July 6. Knowing Zedd’s abilities to create immeasurably catchy melodies, we’re sure this brand new collaboration with a One Direction star is going to be a surefire chart-topper.
Their joint-piece will be titled “Get Low,” and it’s album art indicates it will likely pair well with the summer season.
During an interview with Beats 1, Zedd revealed that he has finished his newest collaboration with One Direction’s Liam Payne. Speaking about the song, Zedd revealed that the next single resembles Drake’s style and is the most urban sounding any of his songs have ever been. “It’s the definition of a summer song,” Zedd states.
