Having crafted hits for the likes of Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez, super producer Diplo is naturally in high demand.
So much so that Pop queen Madonna has tapped him to piece together material for her new album.
Speaking to Paper Magazine this week, the 35-year-old elaborated on his approach to working with her Madegesty and interestingly remarked about the sales of her rival Mariah Carey.
His words after the jump…
“If I’m doing something with Madonna, I’m trying to push the envelope. It’s like the wild west right now. We have someone like DJ Snake [of “Turn Down for What”], who’s selling more than Mariah Carey’s album. He makes music in front of his computer. He’s going triple platinum and Mariah Carey can’t even sell 10,000 copies.”
Far from “shade”, his words reflect truth more than anything else. A shame as ‘Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse’ is an incredible album. Here’s wishing ol’Mimi better fortunes next go round.
As for Madge, we’ll be keeping a close eye on what he’s cooked up for her. Because, recent years have seen her collaborations look great on paper, yet sound more recycle bin in reality.
