Throwing darts at a board may very well be the most successful strategy for predicting who Skrillex will collaborate with next. Ever since Jack Ü's 2015 collaboration with Justin Bieber, "Where Are Ü Now" was released, covering Skrillex has taught us that you can never really know what's coming next.
That notion once again became apparent this week as fans were sent into a frenzy upon seeing the producer himself appear in an Instagram Story clip posted by pop-punk icon Avril Lavigne. Though the clip does not seem to have been shot in a studio, fans immediately began circulating rumors of a potential collaboration.
To be fair, this could all be just wish-casting, and some were quick to throw cold water on the idea of a collaboration taking place, since it seems so out of left field. However, one fan on Reddit was quick to remind us that the initial reaction to the news of Jack Ü and Justin Bieber working together brought up similar feelings of disbelief among fans.

This fall, he has been spotted with quite a mix of fellow artists, including Mike Einziger of Incubus, Zacari, and Justin Bieber.
