BH Buzz: Diplo Had The Best Year Ever

■ Diplo had quite the year! He crafted No. 1 hits with Justin Bieber, has the most streamed song on Spotify with “Lean On,” was nominated for a Grammy and worked with Madonna on “Rebel Heart,” and he’s grateful for all of it.

Here are his favorite moments from 2015:

It was a big year for both of us but really no one inspires me more than @skrillex. You might know him as the DJ god around the world but when I met him he was still living in the Kyoto Grand Hotel and working day and night perfecting a sound. Everything he has done was like something uncharted and we had a mutual respect for each other. We always learned from one another and we're always pushing to be one step ahead. I've seen him become the biggest DJ in the world and he did it on his own terms. He always thinks about his squad and keeps it DIY and punk at the same time. That is not easy…it's nearly impossible. Even though we had drasticly different sounds behind the scenes we have a similar hunger and I still get motivated every time we go in the studio. We both had a tough year in parts and I think both of us are gonna go even harder in 2016. Hopefully we finish a new album that is gonna break through even further. #jackü

■ German producer/DJ Rico Bernasconi aligned with producer Lotus dropped a new song titled “Make A Miracle” with Shiloh & Gravy and Nicki Minaj. However, don’t let the Nicki feature fool you… they lifted it from a 2010 Gucci Mane track, “Sex in Crazy Places.”

Did we leave anything out?
