Skrillex and Diplo Talk Justin Bieber Collaboration
Over the weekend, the superduo of Jack U filled in for the absence of Sam Smith at Hangout Music Festival in Alabama. While at the festival, Skrillex and Diplo were interviewed by Sway Calloway for MTV, who asked them about their popular collaboration with Justin Bieber, "Where Are U Now."
Sway adds that people are calling the collaboration "the song of the summer," before asking how the rare collaboration came about. “With us, there couldn’t have been a more unexpected, weirder idea than just to do a song with Justin Bieber,” said Diplo. Skrillex also talks about how they met with Bieber in the first place, saying, "We met him at a club randomly. If there’s good chemistry and the vibe is alright, you can’t be afraid to try anything with anybody.” Skrillex also gives Justin Bieber and his team a shout out for trusting Jack U with the track.
