Zedd: I Met Selena Gomez Because I Had To Pee (LISTEN)
“It was about as random as it gets,” Zedd told the hosts about his first meeting with Gomez. “I had the day off… and I decided to go buy stuff for my house because I just moved, so I have an empty house, and I had to pee. I had my engineer with me, so I was like, ‘I hope they have a bathroom.’ He was like, ‘Just go to the studio over there,’ which was across the street from my studio. He’s like, ‘They have a bathroom, just go and use that.'”
Zedd continued, “So I walk in, and John, the head of our label, who had just signed Selena, was there… He was like, ‘Have you ever met Selena?’ That was literally the next thing he said… So he introduced me to her, and was like, ‘Hey, she’s cool, maybe we should make a song together.’ And then like a week later, we start working on a song. All because I had to pee.”
He went on to describe the process of working with Gomez on “I Want You To Know,” being in the studio when she recorded the track, and discussed the already-shot music video. Zedd also talked about playing Las Vegas, wanting to work with Adele, his great experience collaborating with Lady Gaga, and a lot more.
