Usher and Ed Sheeran enter the studio with Diplo and Skrillex
An unlikely congregation of musical talents came to light on Ed Sheeran’s Instagram page a day ago, instantly igniting curiosity as to what the four genre stars have in the making. Pictured in the candid shot is the UK singer, sharing studio time with Skrillex, Diplo, and R&B crooner, Usher.
Ed Sheeran shared his plans to collaborate with Usher in a BBC Radio 1 interview, explaining that the collaboration came to reality at a Passover dinner when Usher invited the Grammy-nominated artist to head into the studio together. Surprisingly, the track looks like it may introduce an electronic element with Skrillex and Diplo behind the scenes in production. With imprints on works of Justin Beiber, 2Chainz, Britney Spears, and even Usher himself, Diplo has never been a stranger to producing and collaborating with various artists outside of the ‘EDM’ realm. Hand in hand with his Jack U partner and Grammy champion Skrillex, whatever may be coming from the quad’s studio time is guaranteed to be impressive.
