Read Diplo’s Note About Major Lazer’s ‘Lean On’ Video Hitting 1 Billion Views

'We are feeling like the rebel alliance against the death star of pop youtube,' he wrote.

The funny thing about Diplo is that the songwriter/producer had an exceptional 2015 — but his biggest accomplishments weren’t realized under his name, exactly. In Feburary, he joined up with Skrillex and Justin Bieber for the mega-successful “Where Are Ü Now” (released under the moniker Jack Ü), and later, his Major Lazer collab with DJ Snake and MØ, “Lean On” became Spotify’s top-streamed song of all time.

And as the accolades for “Lean On” — one of our Best Songs Of 2015 — keep on coming well into the new year, Diplo is stepping up to say thanks.
