Diplo Appears In Bieber’s ‘Journals’
Justin Bieber feat. Big Sean & Diplo - Memphis (Original Mix) [The Island Def Jam]

Justin Bieber’s Journals LP released today, and along with it, the Diplo-produced Memphis featuring Big Sean.

Diplo whipped up a downtempo, trap-inspired R&B jam over which Big Sean flows while Biebs belts out sexual innuendos one after the next for the chorus. We’re presuming “Memphis” as a title is a reference to an originating region of the style he’s repurposing for his tween fanbase. Either that, or he’s giving a shout-out to his crunk crew in M-Town–could be both. Either way, great call going with Diplo, that guy can make anyone sound both modern and talented.
