Justin Bieber Turns Rapper on Diplo's Infectious New Track, "BANK ROLL"
The motif of Diplo’s latest release seems to be “expect the unexpected.”
The new tune, a hip hop heavy track called “BANK ROLL” enlists rappers Rich the Kid, and Young Thug, and…Justin Bieber. The Canadian vocalist shows off some surprise chops, spitting a verse sure to make any listener stop to glance once more at the artists credited on the song to verify who is—in the words of Nicki Minaj — “ripping the beat” and stitching it right back up.
The collab dropped yesterday, a sort of Thursday afternoon surprise for Diplo fans everywhere, BANK ROLL neither promoted nor acknowledged by the million-dollar producer. The sole entity to nod to the new single is Rich the Kid; Diplo, Bieber, and Young Thug have noticeably and mysteriously remained quiet with respect to BANK ROLL.
Primed for club consumption, BANK ROLL in its marrying of hip hop and dance music elements—note the harder back beat—screams Diplo.
