listen: diplo, skrillex, and justin bieber made a pretty song
showing their sensitive sides
Super DJs Diplo and Skrillex, who collaborate under the name Jack Ü, Beyoncé-d their debut album last night by releasing it on iTunes out of the blue—while they were in the midst of a 24-hour DJ set. Among the collection of dance-tent-ready anthems is "Where Are Ü Now," featuring none other than Justin Bieber. And guess what: It's pretty good!
It's ironic that three of the most aggro musicians around can make such a pretty song together, but Bieber's voice is in pure angel mode: It sweetly glides across Jack Ü's midnight landscape of piano chords and beckoning synths. For Jack Ü, this counts as a sensitive love ballad. For Justin Bieber, it counts as a step in the right direction. Check it out below.
