It looks like we’ll soon be hearing a collaboration between Justin Bieber and Major Lazer.
Electronic dance music has has been central to Bieber’s transformation from troubled post-adolescent hooligan to Grammy-winning pop pioneer. Skrillex-produced tracks were highlights of 2015’s Purpose. And Bieber shows no signs of stopping, having just entered a public Twitter discussion with Major Lazer member Diplo about their collaboration.
“When are we bringing this new music?” he tweeted, to which the Major Lazer frontman replied, “Let me just whip up this artwork quick because this song is [fire emojis].”
No further details about the collaboration are available, except that Bieber later wrote “It’s happening.” Based on the success of his earlier forays into EDM territory it could be an exciting collaboration, whether it’s targeted for Bieber’s next album or a summer single to supplement the Purpose Tour.
