After Beyonce’s “Run The World (Girls)” received loads of criticism, producer Diplo has finally spoken about the track and he didn’t have anything good to say.

The Philadelphia DJ claimed he didn’t have much control over the song which peaked at no.29 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Sometimes I make records I don’t even like,” he told OK Player.  “I’m working on some pop artists, like I’m not even that excited about the Beyonce record. I didn’t have full control of those records, but this is stuff that helps me parlay into different things. I’m on a path that I want to take advantage of, so I can also go this direction if I want to, but I can’t control what the audience wants to hear.”

Will this mean there won’t be any future Beyonce/Diplo collaborations? – Jazmine Gray
