The Recording Industry Association of America has formally announced their top dance recording for the year of 2017. The industry is behind the awarding the different sales milestones that singles and albums reach such gold, platinum and occasionally diamond.

Obviously their choice was a hit record that nailed down not just platinum status but double platinum. That is no easy task for a dance recording, but Zedd and Alessia Cara made it look easy. They flawlessly infused a pop vibe within a major electronic hit. We once again want to congratulate both Zedd and Alessia and wish them the best of luck at this year's Grammy Awards.
