Diplo teams up with XXXTENTACION for soothing new collaboration
Diplo has had a prolific week with artists across genres. On May 11, the Mad Decent label-head abruptly released “BANK ROLL,” star-ridden number with Justin Bieber, Young Thug, Rich the Kid, King Henry, and Boaz. Just a day later, the producer made headlines again as the producer of burgeoning rapper XXXTENTACION’s new track, “looking for a star (CANT GET YOU OUT OF MY HEAD.”
Where “BANK ROLL” has instantly succeeded to reach a broad audience through the sheer amount of star power behind it, the producer second collaboration of the week shines through because of its quality and ingenuity. With laid-back, but dynamically potent production, Diplo’s composition coaxes a softer, R&B-fueled side out of the Florida rapper.
2017 has been a series of ascensions for XXXTENTACION, but this warm, wistful piece may end up being his biggest breakthrough of the year up to this point.
