In fact, Zedd clarified on Twitter that their recording was not enabled through loopholes or trickery of any sort.
Just to clarify:
We didn’t use any loop holes. Kemosabe / RCA gave us permission to release this song!

However, Dr. Luke seemed less than amused at the producer’s explanation.
The producer hasn’t taken any other actions against the ‘True Colors’ duo, however.
Today the track has officially launched. It’s the first song released by Kesha in 3 years. So far, the single has received nothing but critical praise.
