Diplo Closes Out The Year By Saying Some Very Nice Things About Madonna

Diplo has had a hugely successful recent run, from landing the song of the summer and most streamed song of the year to being the most Shazamed artist of 2015, and to close out the year, he has been reflecting on all of that on his Instagram page. Along his list of accomplishments this year is working with Madonna on her latest album, Rebel Heart. He has been a vocal proponent/defender of her all year, but not just because he has an artistic and financial stake in her new music: In his latest Instagram note, he says their time working on the LP blossomed from a professional partnership into a true friendship.

The earnest note gushes about working with Madge and he seems genuinely humbled by the experience, saying he has gained “a great friend for life”:

“When I first got a chance to work with @madonna I didn’t expect much to come from it. Maybe because she is one of the biggest pop stars of all time. I didn’t think she would take me serious just another producer working on a huge album. I didn’t expect to make a great friend for life and didn’t expect to be such a big part of her record. She showed me a whole other level of dedication and old school work ethic when it comes to writing. I’m proud of the work we did. Those sessions were some of the most fun I have done to date. I played some shows and shot videos with her later in the year but going to the Met ball with Madonna was a highlight of 2015.”
