Kanye and Skrillex have collaborated on a new song, but little information is out about when it will be released. Skrillex told the Daily Beast:
“I did some music with Kanye and from what I know, it’s actually going to be the first song on his new album.”
This isn’t the first time that Kanye has stuck his finger the EDM scene. Kayne recently hand-picked the Budweiser “Made in America” 2-day Festival. The unnamed collab-track will appear on Kanye’s upcoming Cruel Summer album or Kanye’s sixth solo album. Skrillex has achieved so much in the last two years Forbes magazine recently named him the 2nd top-grossing DJ ever, Skrillex has his own label, OWSLA, which has sign artists like Porter Robinson and Sub Focus.
Skrillex spoke to the Daily Beast about his recently publicized relationship with Ellie Goulding:
Even though he’s been living out of a suitcase, Skrillex has been dating the British pop singer Ellie Goulding, whose song “Lights” is currently in the top-10 on the Billboard Hot 100. One of the highlights of HARD was a cameo by Goulding during Nero’s set, with the chanteuse belting out the chorus to “Promises”—the Skrillex remix version, that is. Goulding’s catchy pop anthems provide fantastic remix material for OWSLA’s band of DJs, and this symbiotic relationship is, according to Skrillex, one of the many reasons why they make such a dynamic duo.
“She’s my girlfriend and my lover but also my best friend and if I’m working on something I’ll immediately send her a rough cut, and if she’s working on something she’ll send me a rough, so we’re constantly listening to each other’s shit back-and-forth,” he says with a smile. “I couldn’t imagine not being with someone like Ellie that can share the same lifestyle as me.”
