The formation of supergroup Jack Ü has catalyzed a completely new era for both Skrillex and Diplo as it relates to their projects outside of traditional dance music. Ever since the pair teamed up with Justin Bieber to release “Where Are Ü Now,” their collaborations with outside vocalists have seen them take a secondary role in the production process. Unlike their usual role as the faces of the operation, their efforts behind the scenes have allowed fans to focus on their abilities as musicians and creators rather than their associated images. Skrillex’s production credits on Bieber’s album Purpose has now officially been followed by Diplo‘s own work on Beyoncé‘s recent LEMONADE.
In an Instagram uploaded late last night, Diplo revealed his role in the creation of the singer’s surprise album. In addition to production on the tracks “All Night” and “Hold Up,” Diplo even recorded background vocals which the production team kept in the final cut.
The last time these two worked together was in 2011, when Diplo helped create Beyoncé’s hit track, “Run The World (Girls).”

According to SPIN, the album can be streamed in its entirety exclusively via TIDAL. It will not be released anywhere else… however we were able to find a rip of “All Night” and “Hold Up” which you can stream below before they get taken down.
