The combination of Diplo and Lil Yachty is one unexpected in nature, given Diplo’s allegiance to the dance music genre, and Lil Yachty’s classification as a hip hop artist. Yet genres collide in “Forever Young,” a gem off of Lil Yachty’s twenty-one song album, “Teenage Emotions” that features the Major Lazer constituent.
Amid Yachty’s vocalization of “we could be together forever” is a youthful beat distinctly Diplo in its production, a summery aesthetic infused with tropical tones. Despite the supposed clashing quality of the collaboration, the track is impeccably crafted, Diplo’s engineering a direct and evident complement to Lil Yachty’s verses.
Teenage Emotions is the rapper’s debut album, having dropped yesterday. Teenage Emotions may be streamed on Spotify.
