Ahh my EDM phase :jonny2: This song, video and the whole album had a chokehold on me back then

I was listening to my library on shuffle and Hourglass came on :jonnycat: I hadn’t listened to it in years my poor wig was levitating :WAP:

A bop - I could totally picture Carly Rae Jepsen singing this

When this was initially a free single for iTunes to promote the album and then it smashed like 9 months later, whew. Probably my favorite song of that EDM sound when it was popular.

If she sang it, it probably would’ve had to the same success as the OG or maybe it’d been even bigger cuz Carly was popping on the charts at the time.

A bop wow! An EDM classic fr! They still play this at so many raves. So nostalgic! So many memories when listening to this aww.. chokes me up!

 

I remember when it was announced Gaga was working with him on ARTPOP and my lil gay ass thought she was gonna serve some classics like this :jonny3:

I'm yet to go a rave or a even a club smh :rip:. I turned 18 in 2020 so I'm over the legal age to do these activities.  I wish I could experience what you're describing. ''Clarity'' on HQ speakers. OMG THE COLLAPSE :WAP:

 

You're right about Zedd's involvement with Gaga on ARTPOP. They didn't give what they were supposed to give.

Maybe the BEST song of the 2011-2014 EDM boom :jonnycat:

I’m trying to think of another contender for that title but I can’t.

 

Maybe “Titanium” or “Club Can’t Handle Me”. Although the latter is from 2010. Not in the 2011-2014 EDM craze. David Guetta is credited on both songs :clap3:

 

Spoiler

We Found Love is kinda overrated that’s why I’m not including it…

I’m not familiar with that name buy I saw on Wiki that he co-wrote “Clarity”. So why the flowers to him specifically over the other songwriters ? I’m not trying to start anything. Just curious ?

Yep he wrote it, but Porter also produced the song and it was intended to be released as a collab between himself and Zedd, but he took his name off it because he thought the song was too radio friendly to match with his sound at the time. They were touring together and he let Zedd release it as his own song instead. He also is the backing vocal throughout the song.

If you guys had to pick between these 2 Zedd collabs w/ female vocals, which one would you pick ? 

 

“Clarity” vs “I Want You To Know”

I still like the song, but at the same time I can't stand it with how overplayed it became. :rip:

Wow really ? I lowkey assumed she was similar to the likes of Jess Glyne, Anne-Marie, Dua Lipa, Zara Larsson, Tove Lo etc… 


But since you’re telling me she’s mostly softer pop vibes than the EDM of “Clarity”, I guess she’s not like that hah. 

 

Ok gotcha ! Thanks for the insight and the recommendations ! 

in the beginning of her career FOXES has done other dj pop collabs like for example OASIS with KYGO which you should also check out

Don't get me wrong, she does have the mindless pop bops! Her latest album is full of it (and some are bangers, while some are trash imo). It's just not as EDM-oriented as Clarity!

that is simply not the truth. her last album had no trash songs lol

Ohhh interesting ! I’m keeping that in mind. 

 

PS : I just listened to “Sister Ray” and I dig it. The chorus is very carefree and poppy. It kinda gave me Ava Max vibes if that makes sense ? 

if anything she's serving more so robyn ala call your girlfriend/dancing on my own vibes

this would've been her GOOD TIME 2.0 moment which she would've rightfully deserved

i miss that era of music. everything was just so euphoric and carefree before things got moody and monotonous

clarity hands down. selena's voice gets grating because of all of the autotune used on it.

 

also is zedd ever gonna come out with a third album cause i think that it's also been a decade correct?
