We know Marshmello promised his fans a proper dance music EP, but that doesn’t mean that he’s going to stop making pop tracks.

The helmet-clad producer recently hooked up with Anne-Marie to create a proper pop song and it’s surprisingly good. Pushing his minimalistic and empty-sounding drops aside, Marshmello found a way to make a song that’s satisfying from beginning to end.

On the other hand, the English singer created a verbal ode to friend zoning that one dude who just doesn’t get it with the lyrics, “Haven’t I made it obvious? / Haven’t I made it clear? / Want me to spell it out for you? / F-R-I-EN-D-S.” Hopefully Marshmello can keep creating songs like this to appeal to more listeners who crave more substance from their music.
