Diplo on Justin Bieber: 'Working with him helped to reinvent us both'

Major Lazer's Diplo has revealed that collaborating with Justin Bieber has been transformative. 

Chatting to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 recently, he explained that working with Bieber again was a great experience and it helped to reinvent their respective careers to the same degree:

"When we did “Where Are Ü Now?” it was two years ago and I feel like that came out of nowhere. It was such a weird thing and such a weird record it didn't really pick up steam for a couple months. It really helped to reinvent as much as me and Skillex as much as Justin it was just a good phenomenon I was so happy to be a part of it."

"This record has a lot of moving parts Ed Sheeran helped write the record with us, Benny Blanco and they’ve also had a big hit with Justin last year. It’s like a big family we all do it together. We’re all just people that worked together on the last year and then MØ came in because we love her so much we just want to put her on as many records on the new Major Lazer album as possible."

'Cold Water', meanwhile, recently secured the No.1 position on the Official UK Singles Chart, beating the likes of Drake's 'One Dance', Shawn Mendes' 'Treat You Better' and 'Good Grief' by Bastille to the punch.
