Why Julia Michaels Gets Kinda Depressed After Working with Shawn Mendes

Julia Michaels has written hits for tons of pop stars including herself with last year’s "Issues," but her favorite artist to work with may be Shawn Mendes.

His energy is so infectious she has trouble letting go of it after they collaborate. She tells Billboard:

"I remember waking up the next day and actually being kind of depressed because the session was so energetic and lively, and he was just so excited about so much. I feel like it’s kind of rare when someone is that excited. He has so many ideas and just wants to do song after song after song. The next day, you’re so stimulated that you’re not simulated. You’re like, 'I feel kind of depressed.' I think I texted him and was just like, 'How ya doin'?'"

Julia’s new single "Jump" is out now.
