It also earned Bieber his first ever Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording.
In an exclusive interview with Billboard, Skrillex real name Sonny Moore whispered about an upcoming collaboration with Bruno Mars. “I’m actually working with Bruno Mars right now,” he said. “I’m not going to give specifics of what it sounds like, but what we’re doing is so fucking different, awesome and next level and sounds like nothing else that’s happened before.”
The “Take Ü There” creator also spoke about his keenness to push artists beyond thier comfort zones. “Every time I get in the studio with somebody else and collaborate, that’s when I always have revelations and learn about stuff. And I just love stepping outside of what I know and there’s no other music position that can do that,” Skrillex said.
