Major Lazer and Justin Bieber confirm new music is on the way
Diplo and Justin Bieber are back at it again. The pair confirmed in a series of tweets that they would be releasing new music together soon – their first new work since “Where Are Ü Now?” As the story goes, Bieber approached Diplo at a party in 2014 with the vocal groundwork for what would one day be their smash hit collaboration alongside Skrillex. The pan-flute vocal break was born, and the rest is Grammy-winning history.
Since then, we have seen Bieber and Skrillex continue a successful partnership, with the OWSLA boss picking up significant production credits across Bieber’s Purpose. Now it appears Diplo and Bieber will be releasing new music soon, this time with Major Lazer in tow. With Walshy Fire, Jillionaire and Diplo trying their hands at a forthcoming collaboration, an inescapable dancehall hit is likely on the way.
