DIPLO CROWN

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard new stuff from Diplo, and it’s been a few more minutes since we’ve heard new stuff from Diplo under his own name – though, frankly, new single “Crown” is twerk-y enough that it could be Major Lazer material. It features some production help from Boaz van de Beatz, possibly Lion King-inspired vocals from Mike Posner, and a drop section that sounds like chopped-and-screwed dialup internet.
