Young Thug has been known to break boundaries as one of the defining artists of the last decade. He will go down in the history books as one of the most versatile artists in hip-hop, adapting to trends and creating them alike. One of his best projects to date is Beautiful Thugger Girls, which some would describe as his own take on country music. Now, he's helping Diplo explore his own roots in the genre.
One of the most popular producers of our time, Diplo has released a new album titled Snake Oil, which is somewhat of a mix between country, electronic, and pop music. The indescribable blend is undeniably fun, and we're highlighting "Dance With Me," which features Young Thug and country star Thomas Rhett.
"It’s the weirdest record, but it’s also the most commercial, and that’s on purpose. I was trying to make a statement about who’s allowed to do what," said Diplo about this track.
This song sees all three artists getting out of their comfort zone, releasing an EDM-pop tune that will surely strike radio services across the nation in no time. This collaboration is likely to earn the most attention from hip-hop fans and, while it may not please all of you, you've got to understand that a ton of people will fall in love with it for its mainstream appeal.
