The Grammy Award-winning producer teams up with French rapper Niska for 'Boom Bye Bye.'
American DJ and producer Diplo has released a new single, 'Boom Bye Bye', featuring French rapper Niska. The single arrives ahead of an upcoming EP, Europa, which is expected later this year. Europa will serve as the follow-up to 2018's California EP.
Diplo also posted a music video for the track today, shot by Toronto director Dan Le Moyne. In the video's description, Diplo explained the background of the single:
"Niska came over late one night in Paris and we played this idea down on a piano loop that I made.. I had only been familiar with him because he had every song on the french charts that moment. I was really excited that he came thru and made this crazy idea with me..one year later we finished it."
Diplo shared the news of the release on his Twitter earlier today, in a series of posts written in French.
