Diplo has had a monumental year.
The multi-faceted artist and businessman née Wes Pentz was showered with a bevy of milestones in 2015; from working with pop superstars Justin Bieber and Madonna, to breaking Spotify’s record for most streams of all-time with his Major Lazer project’s “Lean On” and becoming the most Shazammed artist of 2015, he has undoubtedly covered his bases. Oh, and let’s not forget his three Grammy nominations, including producer of the year.
In honor of his accomplishments over the last 12 months, Diplo has taken the time to reflect and thank those who have helped him get to where he is today.
To see the impact of Major Lazer especially in Europe motivates me to work harder. I think our project means the most to places and cities in Europe that have a global feeling. Our music is global, its still honest, and its for everyone. We did this with the fans independently and thats what makes it sweeter. This year was all about u the fans.
