Diplo Says Beyonce Scrapped Her New Album And Started Over

July 12, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

In an interview with The Sun, producer Diplo revealed that Beyonce may have scrapped all or part of her album and started over. Here are highlights:

On working with Beyonce: “I just did two songs for her new album, well, I tried. I think she scrapped the record. The record was supposed to be done and they have been hitting me up for brand new ideas. I like to work from scratch, [but] sometimes I get called in to fix records.”

On working with Katy Perry: “I just did some stuff with Katy Perry, I don’t know if it will come out. She’s so confident and has a great voice. I always worry about making the pop tracks too weird, but then if people want a Diplo record they must know I’m going to be fucking weird.”

On M.I.A. and who he likes to work with: “M.I.A always wanted to have big hits. Me and M.I.A were so uncredible, her whole story was like a joke, y’know. The only people I meet who want to have a ‘cool, underground hit’ are people like Drake and Usher. People who seek credibility make me not give a f*** about it. But I’m always trying to be one step ahead. Even with M.I.A., Paper Planes almost got her dropped from the label and then it became a Top 10 hit.”
