Her voice is infectious and distinctive and the soul behind that voice is an absolute authentic force-of-nature. When the opportunity came to work with her it was an easy yes for me. I knew we could put something together that would be fun, meaningful and above all, sticky enough that people can’t help but sing it after one listen. “With You” was a pleasure to put together with MEGHAN, and I can’t wait for everyone to start singing along.” Of the collaboration MEGHAN says, “It was a dream come true to work with KASKADE! He’s a legend and I truly love this song we did together!”\\
