Skrillex, Diplo, and Justin Bieber are the latest to join YouTube’s billion views club

This post was originally published on this site

Perhaps there was a brief moment of skepticism when it became obvious that Skrillex and Diplo would be instrumental in resurrecting Justin Bieber‘s career. In 2014, Bieber was unanimously hated by every living human over the age of 11, and simultaneously, EDM’s perennial cool guys were riding converging waves into the massive swell that became Jack Ü.

In spite of seemingly divergent paths, the combination materialized anyway, the product was, of course, “Where Are Ü Now,” and the rest is history: over four million units moved, four platinum certifications earned, and a Grammy Award to boot. Any fleeting skepticism washed away as the song came to define the year and dominate the airwaves, and now, the blockbuster collaboration has reached another considerable milestone, as it is the latest to join YouTube‘s billion view ranks.

Coincidentally enough, of less than 50 inductions, none of these artists are strangers to the Billion Views Club, with Bieber, Skrillex, and Diplo each already earning previous spots in the club. Seeing a pattern here? The track’s undeniable appeal was also matched with a creative video concept which sourced fan art from admirers around the world. “Where Are Ü Now” joins sweeping hits from Taylor Swift, Adele, The Chainsmokers and more as the past decade’s leading pop hallmarks.

This post was originally published on this site

Back in 2015, French-Canadian bass maestro Snails was a featured guest on an episode of Skrillex‘s OWSLA Radio residency on Apple Music. Between bouts of friendly banter, the superstar DJs showcased two hours worth of tracks in their personal rotations, even going as far as previewing unreleased selects over the air for each other. One such track from Snails, affectionately nicknamed “Squishy Riddim” by Skrillex, is now finally getting an official release as “Break It Down,” on OWSLA, and while Skrill’s unofficial title didn’t stick, it still gave an accurate representation of what the listener is in for.

While the track hasn’t changed much since its infancy, the final product, which also features Space Laces and Sam King, comes with a striking new music video, serving as the follow up to Snails and Botnek‘s previously released “Waffle House” video. The accompanying feature, by Spanish filmmaker Ernest Desumbila, matches the track’s high octane kick with an animated 80’s-inspired sci-fi thrill ride which perfectly complements Snails’ belly-churning production style.
