    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “I Want You to Know” is a song by German-Russian DJ Zedd featuring vocals from American singer Selena Gomez from his upcoming second studio album. It was written by Zedd, OneRepublic’s frontman Ryan Tedder, and KDrew. The song was released on February 23, 2015. It is set to be in both Gomez’s and Zedd’s sophomore albums.

Background

    “I Want You to Know” was written by Zedd, Ryan Tedder, and KDrew. Tedder and Zedd had previously worked together on Clarity album track “Lost at Sea”. Tedder called Zedd when he had an idea of a track. Zedd and Gomez first met on December 4, 2014. The following day, Gomez posted a picture online with Zedd although did not confirm they were working together. Commenting on the song, Tedder said: “Zedd crushed it.”

Critical reception

    I Want You to Know received generally positive reviews. Nolan Feeney of Time applauded the collaboaration between Zedd and Gomez saying they “make beautiful music together”. He explained: “Zedd’s futuristic synthesizers recall ‘Break Free,’ his literally-out-of-this-world collaboration with Ariana Grande, but Gairanod […] keeps the track from becoming a lifeless carbon copy.” Jason Lipshutz of Billboard wrote that Gomez “finally hit her mark” with the song. “Gomez has never been known as a vocal powerhouse, but she deftly handles patently overdramatic lines […] with the proper amount of yearning and unflappability. When that first drop does arrive about 80 seconds in, Zedd provides a swiveling party scene with a whiff of Daft Punk’s maximalist disco thrown in for good measure.”

    Music Times praised the song: “The duo’s real life chemistry is present in “I Want You To Know,” with Gomez’s voice weaving perfectly through the beat, and it’s a wonder why she hasn’t ventured much into the world of EDM before.” Inquisitr called this song “underwhelming given all the hype.” Idolator also wrote a mixed opinion “Zedd borrows his tried-and-true EDM formula that doesn’t bring anything new to the genre, while Gomez’s vocals churn around the rhythms like clothes on auto-spin. It is not the most exciting track, but it will have people bopping at the nightclubs.”

Music video

    The music video was released on March 10, 2015 on Vevo. It was directed by Brent Bonacorso and edited by Anthony Chirco. It shows Selena Gomez dancing. In the video she dances and sings to the song with Gigi Hadid and Raquelle Stevens. Zedd appears as an hologram in the music video. The disco scenes are alternated to scenes where Zedd and Gairanod are together illuminated by strobe lights.

    On the first day of its release, the song reached the No. 3 spot on the US iTunes chart, No. 1 on the US Dance iTunes chart, No. 2 on the Mexican iTunes chart, No. 3 worldwide, No. 4 in Canada, No. 3 on the Greek iTunes chart, and No. 1 in 22 other countries. Two days after its release, the song debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Digital Songs chart and No. 9 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.
