Wish U Were Here

Songfacts®:

  • Cody wrote this summer dance tune with Dr. Luke, who is responsible for hits by such A-list stars as Katy Perry, Rihanna and Britney Spears and Taio Cruz whose own successful recordings include the international smash "Dynamite." "It's a really great feeling when you put a song out there that you feel could compete with artists like the biggest artists out there right now. It's amazing," Cody told MTV News. "I recorded this song with amazing producers Dr. Luke... I wrote it with Taio Cruz and they both had a lot of experience and a lot of big summer hits. It's cool to be able to work with people that have had experience with that [and] make it as best as it can be while making it my own."
