Zedd has teamed up with Aloe Blacc to remake “Candyman,” a song from the classic film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory that was previously performed by music legend, Sammy Davis Jr. The track features Blacc’s lush vocals laid over some retro-tinged piano keys, before Zedd lays down a hypnotizing future bass drop.
The remake was actually made in celebration of M&Ms’ 75th anniversary.
“M&Ms asked Aloe Blacc and I to create a new version of the classic song ‘The Candyman,'” Zedd shared on SoundCloud. “I had a lot of fun re-imagining this song and hope you enjoy it. 🙂 Huge shout out to my dawgs Grey and Joe Trapanese who helped me record this record!”
