Diplo plays Madonna on Superstar DJs, but it was…
Diplo plays Madonna on Superstar DJs. It was not a brand new track anyway. Diplo plays a dub plate of La Isla Bonita. Madonna recorded totally new lyrics to La Isla Bonita for Diplo.
“Last night I dreamt of Major Lazer,” sings Madonna. Major Lazer is a Diplo project. They are going to record a brand new album soon, with a lot of artist collaborations.
What is a dub plate? Basically a DJ often is involved in battles with other DJs, so they get an artist to re-record one of their most famous songs, but changes the lyrics to include the name of the DJ, so when they play the song in the battle everyone is impressed.
This actually proves that Madonna and Diplo have got a really good working relationship.
