SOTD: Wish

I’ve recently become obsessed with a new song that I never would have expected myself to like or even listen to. The song is Wish by Diplo. Who is Diplo you might ask? I would ask the same thing. 

Diplo is a famous American DJ known far and wide by fans of electronic music. His style never appealed to me. And the song Wish wouldn’t have appealed to me either, because on Spotify it says Wish by Diplo. But, I heard it in someone’s live stream on Instagram, not knowing it was a Diplo song, and loved it. I googled the lyrics and found it and was like oh. I guess it makes sense.

Wish features Trippie Redd as the vocals, while Diplo does the mixing and production and all the behind the scenes stuff. The song is dope.

Take a read of the lyrics below and check the video to hear the track. 

[Chorus]
Ooh, baby, what you wishin' for?
Maybe you should wish it more
Maybe the world is yours
Maybe when it rains, it pours (Keep on wishin')
I don't know how to wish anymore (Keep on wishin')
I don't know how to wish anymore (I don't know how to wish anymore)
Or do I?

[Post-Chorus]
Wish you'd get out my face, might go MIA
Might just blow my brain, I'd be Kurt Cobain
I can't feel my face, I can't feel my face
I can't feel my face, I can't feel my face


[Verse]
I wish you would find your chill
'Cause Lord knows this shit get real
And for this price you know you'd kill
Man it's big brackin', know the deal
Man it's big slatt, you know the deal

Draco a big dragon, fire and hell
Can't save me man, save yourself
'Cause I do not need no help

[Bridge]
Keep on wishin'
Keep on wishin'
Keep on wishin'
Ooh, ohh, ahh
[Chorus]
Ooh, baby, what you wishin' for?
Maybe you should wish it more
Maybe the world is yours
Maybe when it rains, it pours (Keep on wishin')
I don't know how to wish anymore (Keep on wishin')
I don't know how to wish anymore (I don't know how to wish anymore)
Or do I?

[Post-Chorus]
Wish you'd get out my face, might go MIA
Might just blow my brain, I'd be Kurt Cobain
I can't feel my face, I can't feel my face
I can't feel my face, I can't feel my face


[Chorus]
Ooh, baby, what you wishin' for?
Maybe you should wish it more
Maybe the world is yours
Maybe when it rains, it pours
I don't know how to wish anymore
I don't know how to wish anymore
Or do I?

[Outro]
Ooh, ohh, ahh

I love collaborations like this. It reminds me of the collab of Marshmello x Lil Peep that was released after his death, Spotlight. It’s an awesome mix of genres and works really well in my opinion.

Peep brought an excitement to music that was unparalleled to anybody I’ve ever met. We started an idea together, that unfortunately we were never able to officially finish together. When I listen to this track now I get chills wishing he could hear it. This record is dedicated to Peep’s mother, family, friends and his fans. Gus will live forever through his music and that is something we should all be extremely thankful for.

I hope to hear more hip-hop/rap x electronic/EDM collabs.
