Diplo hates his new track with Justin Bieber, deletes it from internet

If you weren’t too keen on Diplo’s newest song ‘Bank Roll’, it turns out you’re not the only one.

The track, which Diplo was posted on his SoundCloud page last Friday, features a stack of artists — including frequent collaborator Justin Bieber, rappers Young Thug and Rich The Kid, with extra production being provided by Boaz and King Henry. The Biebs, who usually takes over singing duties when he links up with Diplo, even had a shot at rapping on ‘Bank Roll’, handling the entire first verse.

Despite the track’s A-list cast, it appears not to have resonated with Diplo’s fans, who largely spent the weekend tearing it to pieces on social media:

Now, ‘Bank Roll’ has vanished from the internet, and Diplo has started retweeting a bunch of less-than-flattering responses to the song:

Diplo has yet to officially comment on why he removed the track from SoundCloud, so we don’t know for sure whether the negative response had anything to do with it being taken down. Pretty big coincidence though, right?

‘Bank Roll’ was just the latest in a growing trend of dance/hip-hop collaborations. Last week, Scottish hitmaker Calvin Harris shared the tracklisting for his upcoming album, which will feature guest verses from the likes of Travis Scott, Schoolboy Q, Migos, Nicki Minaj, Future, Big Sean, Snoop Dogg, Young Thug and Lil Yachty.

If the last few days are anything to go by, it looks like dance fans are much more accepting of Harris’ hip-hop collaborations than Diplo’s.
