," as well as co-producing Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj's hit tune "Beauty And A Beat
." Zedd first linked up with Lady when his remix of her "Marry the Night
" track appeared on the special edition of Born This Way
. "I think 'Aura' [is] one of the most interesting and unique electronic songs ever, honestly," Zedd commented to MTV News. "It's so crossing over to, you know, there's so many guitars and it's like an oriental vibe. And there's a hard electronic drop and kind of a minimal drop in the end. I don't how to describe it, it's kind of cool."
