“When a new song comes out it gives me that feeling of when you’re a kid and you’re excited for your birthday,” Vance says. “Hope you like it.”
“You” gives Marshmello another collaborator from the alternative world, following his massive hit “Happier” with Bastille, and the single “Here with Me.” with CHVRCHES.
