Twitter arguments and high profile “beefs” in the world of dance music are a dime a dozen it seems. These usually occur among a handful of artists who many fans have come to know as outspoken on social media platforms (cough, cough Rob Swire). But today people were freaking out trying to determine what the issue between Zedd and Marshmello was and if any bad blood actually existed. It was definitely surprising as both artists are remarkably positive and happy-go-lucky in their general demeanor. Could a beef from two of dance music's most pure souls really be a thing?! Well no, but actually kind of…
Ok but do Zedd & Marshmello have beef? I need to know

The Middle vs. Friends
It all stems from Marshmello and Zedd both using Anne Marie on vocals for the songs ‘Friends' and ‘The Middle'. Obviously, her label stepped in and said the songs could not be released at the same time, which is more or less common practice in the music industry. This is where people thought the feud stemmed from. That being said, the artists never actually exchanged any words. Zedd would go on to change the vocalist for ‘The Middle' and it would become one of the biggest songs in 2018. Marshmello squashed the rumors of beef quickly.
No beef, I’ve got nothing but love for @Zedd the whole situation came from the label not telling us about about Zedds record. But tbh look how well the middle is doing, water under the bridge now https://t.co/5dLfMnQHTG
