I personally love challenges, which is really why I loved doing it. You know, when we talked about it first—I called Aloe and we kind of were on the same page of what we wanted to do and how we wanted to try to keep the melody as much as we could from the original. You know—change parts of the lyrics, but still link them to the original topic of it being a really fun and light song. And everything sounded awesome at first, and then when we started writing it, we realized it's not as easy as we thought it would be. So it was a really great challenge to try to keep that original vibe, but combine it with something that, you know, ideally is even ahead of its time.


"Candyman" is a song by Zedd and Aloe Blacc, with additional production by Grey and Joseph Trapanese. It was released on February 26, 2016.


Zedd and Blacc announced the song on February 19, 2016. The latter of the two also tweeted a sample of the lyrics: "And it feels so good!" In addition, previews of the song were scattered throughout various M&M's Twitter videos—one of which featured Zedd and another Blacc—to commemorate the candy's seventy-fifth anniversary.

The song was posted onto Zedd's SoundCloud on February 25, 2016, and released along with a music video the next day. A live performance stream of the song was also hosted via Facebook on March 3.[3]


Livin' for tomorrow
Lost within a dream
Trying to find the answer to the question and it seems
That love makes the world feel good

Singin' in the moonlight
Dancin' in the rain
Let the sun shine through to lift your spirit once again
'Cause love makes the world feel good

Chasing after rainbows
Somewhere in the the sky

And it feels so good, oh yeah
And it feels so good, oh yeah
And it feels so good, oh yeah
And it feels so good, oh yeah

And it feels so good

Ridin' on the rhythm
Of hearts that beat as one
This feels like a river and we've only just begun
'Cause love makes the world feel good

Holdin' onto memories
Of smiles that are still alive
Look into the future and its happiness inside
'Cause love makes the world feel good

Walkin' through my past life
Where the days are full of joy

And it feels so good, oh yeah
And it feels so good, oh yeah
And it feels so good, oh yeah
And it feels so good, oh yeah

And it feels so good

The candyman can because he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good...
