In perhaps one of the most unexpected collaborations of the decade, Skrillex will have a heavy hand in the production of Justin Bieber’s new album.
It seems that the two have taken a liking to one another after working together on the Jack Ü track, “Where Are Ü Now.” Plus, Skrillex has openly defended Justin during interviews in the past, and I have to agree with the mentality of appreciating good music instead of succumbing to the ever popular pastime of Bieber hate.
Though he doesn’t need any defending, lest it be against hordes of bass heads, Skrillex has also received similar praise from the Biebs:
“Skrillex is a genius, he’s super futuristic and I just love his sound, so being able to incorporate that sound with what I’m doing has been super cool because it’s new and fresh and I feel like no one’s done it before.”
“Where Are Ü Now” is arguably one of the best tracks on Jack Ü’s self-titled album, and iTunes’ popularity bar would have you believe the same. Already having cemented themselves as a formidable force in dance music, we can’t wait to see what Sonny will bring to Justin’s sound.
