Thomas Wes Pentz, known by his stage monikers Diplo and Major Lazer, may be up to some new antics. In Billboard’s cover article featuring the artist and producer, team member Ron Perru (president of SONGS publishing) teased some future collaborations that have us tingling with anticipation. Among them, a collab with Brooklyn-based rapper Desiigner, who’s best know for his hit “Panda”.


There’s also a a collaboration brewing in a completely new area for the star: a collaboration with country music sensation Sam Hunt. Hunt’s music is borderline country-pop, with a voice that would mesh nicely on any of Pentz’s tracks. It’ll be interesting to see what Diplo dabbles in next.
