Diplo Reveals Why Jack Ü Decided To Work With Justin Bieber

Posted at October 31st, 2016 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in

Justin Bieber & Jack Ü have been quite the trio ever since the popstar put his imprint on Jack Ü’s debut album. Although, it’s been a great ride for them especially Diplo with hits like ‘Where are you now’ & ‘Cold Water’ it has left a number of people in a befuddled state of mind. Diplo cleared that up in his interview with FADER, excerpts;

“Justin had kinda hit rock bottom with things, like from the press, from jail, and from, like, taking his pants down at an awards show or something. I wasn’t even paying attention, but I know that he wasn’t very cool. And I was trying to really help Skrillex rebrand his own project, too. If nothing else, I thought working with Bieber would be the most noticeable thing we could do. It would be a great record, and it would make everyone really fucked up. It would make them really disappointed in themselves, and really confused, like, ‘How do I like this record?’”

“Even from day one, as I started to develop, I saw people’s perceptions of me as a producer, and they always want to put me in one box or another. Maybe that’s why I’m a target for things because I don’t belong anywhere. If I make a record that makes people think that Justin Bieber is cool and makes them dance to it—which seems to be one of the most daunting tasks ever—then maybe people will rethink the way they think about music, you know? It’s not so dry and clear, what’s cool and what isn’t. Good music is going to be good music. He’s somebody you don’t want to like, but you like it.”
