As much as we might hate to admit it or bring it up, Skrillex & Diplo weren’t the only winners when they received the Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Recording tonight at the Grammys. Featured artist Justin Bieber will also take home a Grammy tonight for his part in the collaboration “Where Are Ü Now,” his first ever.

Bieber’s last nominations were in 2011, for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album for My World 2.0.
Most people will easily credit Skrillex & Diplo with the revival of Bieber’s career, and this award at the end of it all should be an easy reinforcement of that belief. While Bieber would have most certainly achieved some level of success with his most recent album, Purpose, its real scope, reach, and magnitude were only achievable with the help of Jack Ü and their absolutely massive collaboration.
