The wait for Zedd’s new song with Kehlani, “Good Thing,” is finally over.


First teased on social media with just a couple chord plucks, the full song follows the pop formula we expected from Zedd on this one, albeit with some songwriting twists that are more than welcome.

“It’s been a while since I was THIS excited about a song,” shares Zedd. “To me, ‘Good Thing’ brings all of my musical influences together. It has elements of pop, jazz, electronic and even soul. It feels like a journey of all the genres of music I’ve made and enjoyed throughout my life. Getting to work on this song with Kehlani was incredible. She’s such an unbelievable talent and I’m so honored we got to do this song together. “

Listen to “Good Thing” below.

Zedd – Good Thing with Kehlani

[Verse 1]
I book myself tables
At all the best restaurants, then eat alone
I buy myself fast cars
Just so I can drive them real fuckin’ slow
I like my own company
Company, I don’t need it
I’m not always cold
I’m just good on my own, so good on my own

[Pre-Chorus]
I’ve always been told, one day, I’ll find
Somebody who changes my mind
If they come along, I won’t think twice

[Chorus]
‘Cause I already got a good thing with me
Yeah, I already got everything I need
The best things in life are already mine
Don’t tell me that you got a good thing for me
‘Cause I already got a good thing with me
Yeah, I already done everything I dream
I’m good by myself, don’t need no one else
Don’t tell me that you got a good thing for me
‘Cause I already got a good thing

[Verse 2]
I make myself up
Just to dance in the mirror when I’m at home
I pose and take pictures
Then send them to people that I don’t know
I like getting compliments
Compliments how I’m feeling, oh
I’m not always selfish
Just bad at romance, it’s not in my bones

[Pre-Chorus]
I’ve always been told, one day, I’ll find
Somebody who changes my mind
If they come along, I won’t think twice

[Chorus]
‘Cause I already got a good thing with me (Good thing with me)
Yeah, I already got everything I need (Everything I need)
The best things in life are already mine
Don’t tell me that you got a good thing for me
‘Cause I already got a good thing with me (Good thing with me)
Yeah, I already done everything I dream (Everything I dream)
I’m good by myself, don’t need no one else
Don’t tell me that you got a good thing for me
‘Cause I already got a good thing

[Pre-Chorus]
I’ve always been told, one day, I’ll find
Somebody who changes my mind
If they come along, I won’t think twice

[Chorus]
‘Cause I already got a good thing with me (Oh, good thing with me)
Yeah, I already got everything I need (Everything I need, yeah)
The best things in life are already mine
Don’t tell me that you got a good thing for me (No, no)
‘Cause I already got a good thing with me (Good thing with me)
Yeah, I already done everything I dream (Everything, yeah)
I’m good by myself, don’t need no one else
Don’t tell me that you got a good thing for me
‘Cause I already got a good thing
