Diplo Describes Working With Justin Bieber At "Lowest Point Of His Life"


Diplo stopped by the studio the other day to talk about his new song "Electricity" with Silk City and Dua Lipa

We could totally understand why Diplo wanted to work with an artist like Dua Lipa who is blowing up in the music scene right now. She has such a unique low voice for a female "a baritone" as Diplo described in music terms. The truth is Diplo actually DM'd Dua Lipa way before producing this song telling her that he wants to get her on a track but he wants to wait for the perfect one. Fast forward to 2018 and we were blessed with another amazing electronic song thanks to Diplo and the beautiful vocals of Dua Lipa. 

This isn't the first time Diplo took a chance on an artist. Diplo goes into detail of when him and Skrillex were in the underground music scene when the produced the hit song "Where Are U Now." Diplo describes that he wanted to get Justin Bieber on the track but he was at an all time low. "He was at the lowest point of his life, had been to jail, people thought he was a brat," says Diplo on the singer ".... I remember talking to Scooter (Braun)... and I'm like 'this sounds crazy but let's do a record...' and we did it." And thank goodness they did because "Where Are U Now" is an a favorite for a lot of Justin's fans as well as carved the way in Justin's career working in electronic music. 

We can't wait to see what Diplo has in store for the future. Looking forward to his next visit to the studio!
