Diplo And Skrillex Drop A Surprise With The Release Of Jack U album

Posted at March 4th, 2015 | by NikitaBhanu | in

At this year’s 57th Annual Grammy Awards, American DJ, music producer, rapper and songwriter Diplo announced the release of his much awaited album Jack U. When asked about his upcoming projects, he gave a little peek of the album’s expected release dates:

 

“The Madonna album’s out in March. I did a lot of her album. Then there’s Major Lazer, my project, which I did with Ariana Grande, Ellie Goulding, Travis Scott, Pusha-T, Gwen Stefani- that comes out in April. And with Skrillex I did an album called Jack U, that’s out this month, that’s really cool.”

 

Grammy winning American EDM producer, DJ, singer and songwriter Skrillex and Diplo came together as Jack U in September 2014 to perform at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami and quickly rose to the top of the charts with the release of their first official single “Take Ü There” featuring vocals from Kiesza.

 

Fans have waited a long 5 months in anticipation of the release of an album. On 23rd February, Diplo accidently posted on Instagram a shot of Jack U fan art with the caption “three days.” which was subsequently removed.
