If you're reading this, you're most probably gong to the massive Zedd concert being presented by Neverland Manila on August 8 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
If you just accidentally clicked on the article, stay awhile because the dude's got songs good enough to be the anthem for an entire year such as 2012's chart-topping "Stay The Night" featuring our favorite alt-girl Hayley Williams. He's got a real penchant for collaborating with pop princesses. (See: "Break Free" with Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez's "I Want You To Know")

2015 saw Zedd release his sophomore album, True Colors, which features the aforementioned Selena Gomez collab.

But if that's the only thing you know about the album, we think you might have to beef up #ZeddKnowledge. And what better way to do that than listening to what the world's foremost experts on music are saying about it?
1) The album is cool, romantic, and confident.
"This crafted and cool LP repeats most of what was good with his debut, plus it is confident enough to have exes over, as Gomez appears on the highlight and single "I Want You to Know" belting out romantic words co-written by Ryan Tedder ("I want you to know, that I'm all yours/You and me run the same course")." - David Jeffries for Allmusic.com
2) It's bred by club culture.
"Tracks come and go like on a pop album, with only a handful of numbers passing the five-minute mark, and yet, the production is in line with the EDM aesthetic, as the stuttering, the stopping, and the twisting comes from club culture and not mainstream radio" - David Jeffries for Allmusic.com
3) It's the best soundtrack for a beach date with bae.
"Ultimately, Zedd’s True Colors shows the guy is brilliant at what he does, and for those who want to get all in their feelings on the way to a festival or to soundtrack a beach date with bae (or a group of friends), this will be the disc to keep on repeat. Clocking in at a hair over 50 minutes, True Colors could become the proper definition of mainstream EDM for years to come." - Khal for Complex.com
4) The album offers a massive sugar rush.
"Zedd's second LP is stuffed with sugar-rush beats that are fun, even when they blur together." - Nick Murray for Rollingstone.com
5) It features relatable content.
"True Colors, Zedd's second LP, includes songs about love, breakups and seizing the day, but the real subject is always his enormous beats." - Nick Murray for Rollingstone.com
