"I can't wait to try on the crown, I know my mom is gonna be so proud, I told my crew I'm bout to shut shit down, we do it big when I get back in town..." Diplo's back yet again, with another massive hit released in celebration of reaching 1 MILLION followers on Twitter. This time, he has collaborated with Mike Posner, Boaz Van de Beatz, and Riff Raff on a track that is described on Diplo's Soundcloud as "acid jazz".  The track, called "Crown", starts out with Mike's soft (or, let's be honest...kind of girly) vocals and a progressive build, leading up to a very bass-heavy drop.  I'm still trying to decide if I really like the heavy drops in this track, but regardless, it's sure to be a hit for both Diplo and Posner.  Check it out here on SoundCloud!
