Honestly, as much as I've heard the song... and as much as I've seen the commercial with the song in it from Target... I just can't imagine anyone other than Maren Morris on the vocals of Zedd's hit song "The Middle." But, the truth is coming out that it almost wasn't her! Can you imagine Demi Lovato or Camila on it!?
More than a dozen singers were considered, including Demi Lovato, Camila Cabello, Carly Rae Jepsen, Bebe Rexha and Elle King.
Stefan Johnson, one of the producers, says, "The lyrics took on a whole new meaning when Maren sang. All of a sudden, you believe it. The taps are running. Dishes are broken. It sounded a little Nashville and felt right."
It took nearly a year from start to finish to get the song recorded with Zedd and Grey.
