Here's where we didn't expect to see Justin Bieber: making his first appearance in more than a year alongside Diplo and Skrillex (the beat-spliced power ballad “Where Are Ü Now”). That's one of the many surprises on the duo's Jack Ü debut, which dropped without warning last week, delivering on the hype of a co-headlining show at Madison Square Garden a couple months back. Not to mention a solid lead single in the form of the endorphin-flooding "Take Ü There." The Kiesza track receives a ramped-up remix at the tail end of Jack Ü's album, too, rounded out by rapid-fire rhymes from the one and only Missy Elliott. Other crucial collaborations include a full-on banger featuring 2 Chainz ("Febreze"), a dizzying duet with AlunaGeorge ("To Ü"), and a surprisingly subtle love song flanked by neon-doused synth lines and Kai's lead vocals ("Mind"). If that isn't enough to keep midstream clubs moving over the next few months, Diplo is now in the middle of wrapping a new Major Lazer record and Skrillex is stockpiling another round of records with Boys Noize in time for their next Dog Blood appearance at Detroit's legendary Movement Festival this Memorial Day weekend.
