Diplo Talks Getting Drunk with Madonna & Their Upcoming Collaboration with 'Billboard'!

Diplo is dapper as he graces the cover of the newest issue of Billboard, out on news stands Friday, August 22nd.

Here is what the 35-year-old DJ/producer had to share with the mag:

On how working with Madonna started over a text message: ​”I sent her some songs. She wrote me back like a 20-page text, notes about all these songs.”

On getting drunk with Madonna during one of their three studio sessions: “One [song] is super weird. “Late one night in the studio we got a little bit drunk and she improvised a little hook and we made a song out of it. I think it’s going to be a breakthrough if she can manage to get everything together and get it out properly. It was nice. I don’t think she really drinks, either.”

On one of the in-the-works Madonna tracks: “That song is on like version 20. It went from a piano ballad to a ‘Turn Down for What’-style song, which I didn’t like. Now it’s somewhere in the middle.”

We can’t wait to hear what these two have cooked up for us!
