Skrillex Collaborating With Usher, Diplo & Ed Sheeran
Skrillex and Diplo are known for collaborating with musicians outside of the EDM industry. Their ability to crossover into various genres and produce quality songs with non-EDM artists has gained them widespread respect. Consequently, it's not a big surprise to see the two producers in the studio with superstar vocalists Ed Sheeran and Usher.
Last month, Sheeran briefly talked about working with Skrillex, Diplo, and Usher, but it flew under the radar. However, he recently uploaded photographic proof of the four working together to his Instagram, and it has fans clamoring to hear what the stars are working on.
According to MTV, Sheeran said, “We made this awesome song.…It was one of those songs that, as soon as we finished it, we were jamming out listening to the rough mix of it and I’m in my head, thinking ‘I want this song.’”
We have absolutely no idea what the track will sound like, but our curiosity has been piqued. Sheeran's voice is at the center of one of our favorite remixes of the past six months, Kygo's reinterpretation of Sheeran's "I See Fire." With this in mind, we have very high expectations for any music coming from the Sheeran, Usher, Diplo, and Skrillex studio sessions.
