‘The Middle’ Almost Sounded Like THIS?!

Zedd and Maren Morris struck gold a few summers ago with the catchy, clock-infused track “The Middle.” But it almost wasn’t Maren who did vocals on that song!

Camila Cabello finally released her finished demo of the song – turns out she was offered “The Middle” first! But Camila turned it down, instead opting to sing her now-famous summer smash “Havana.” A bit of a risk, sure, but considering how both songs did, it seems like she made the right move.
