Marshmello dropped his latest album, Joytime III, earlier this year, leading to one of the longest droughts in music for the producer yet. Though, even four months seems relatively short for this production powerhouse.
He returns now with “Tongue Tied,” a collaboration with YUNGBLUD and blackbear. Sonically, it fits in with Mello’s previous pop-leaning collaborations like “Project Dreams” and “FRIENDS.”
YUNGBLUD and blackbear both offer an emotional core to the song, alongside what we can assume are guitar licks from Marshmello himself. The arrangement is definitely geared toward radio play with a typical verse/chorus construction, as opposed to the big, pyro-worthy moments at festivals. That being said, you can bet on one or both of these artists coming out as special guests at one of Mello’s sets sometime fairly soon.
