Missy Elliott Remixes Jack U’s ‘Take U There’

After last week’s teaser, Diplo and Skrillex (aka Jack U) have unleashed Missy Elliot’s remix of their Kiesza-assisted single, “Take U There.” The new version is much like the original, except that it adds Missy’s powerful and distinctive vocals.
With her spectacular Super Bowl performance and now this remix, we can’t help but wonder if Missy is set for a comeback this year.

Diplo might be celebrating his birthday today but he and Skrillex still found time to stop by New York radio station Hot 97 for a chat. Speaking on the station’s “Ebro in the Morning” show, the two artists discussed their love for different genres and how their group Jack U is dedicated to combining them. Diplo also revealed he’s working on a track with Nas and another artist, and Skrill revealed he’s working on projects with Fergie and Missy Elliot.

“I never thought I was a dance producer. We had that lane for a little bit and we worked in it but we’ve always been bigger than that.” – Diplo

Skrillex and Diplo’s Jack U project is one the most forward-thinking groups in music right now. When it comes to live sets, the duo not only drops original material but also a wide variety of EDM and hip-hop bangers that align with their bass-centric mission.
On Saturday night, Jack U lived up to that reputation by delivering a highly-anticipated mix for BBC Radio 1Xtra’s “Diplo and Friends” show. The two-hour takeover contained plenty of new and exclusive music, including a Jack U track featuring 2 Chainz.
