"You Make Me" is a song written and recorded by Swedish DJ, remixer, and record producer Avicii and Swedish soul/pop musician and singer Salem Al Fakir in collaboration with Swedish songwriter Vincent Pontare and producer Arash Pournouri. It was produced for Avicii's debut studio album, True, and appears as the second track on the album. The song was released as the second single from True on 30 August 2013 as a follow-up to "Wake Me Up". The single made its worldwide debut on BBC Radio 1's The Pete Tong Show on 16 August.[1]

Music video[edit]

A lyric video for "You Make Me" made by Jesper Eriksson was uploaded to Avicii's VEVO YouTube account on 30 August 2013. The video depicted city scenes (from, among others, Bangkok, Bochum, Chicago and Tokyo) heavily using the miniature photography technique.[2]

The official music video, directed by Sebastian Ringler premiered on the same channel on 16 September 2013,[3] in which according to Vevo "down at the skate rink a little bit of jealousy explodes into ninja battle".[4]
