Skrillex has previously worked with 2 ChainzEllie GouldingA$AP Rocky and Sirah. Who else should join his exclusive club? Here are 10 artists that need to pick up the phone and give Skrillex a call — for their sake and ours.

P!nk

It’s been almost three years since P!nk’s last album, 2012’s The Truth About Love, and we still have no idea what her follow-up will sound like (or when it will be released). Her last album was a synth-pop masterpiece largely helmed by Greg Kurstin, so why not switch it up — for a single track, at least — with something more immediately combustible?

Usher

Last year, Usher reportedly entered the studio with Skrillex to work on some new music… and that music has yet to surface, just like Usher’s follow-up to 2012’s enthralling Looking 4 Myself. Hopefully those tracks surface and go toe-to-toe with Usher’s recent work with Swedish House Mafia and David Guetta.

Carly Rae Jepsen

Hey, quick question: how underrated is Carly Rae Jepsen’s 2012 dance single “Tonight I’m Getting Over You”? If you answered ‘crazy underrated,’ sorry, we were looking for ‘mind-meltingly underrated.’ CRJ’s soon-to-be-released new album is a 80’s pop fantasia, but she should someday return to that EDM majesty, with Skrillex by her side this time.

Backstreet Boys

This is a weird choice for Skrillex, but… so was Korn. A Skrillex-BSB collabo would be incredibly compelling from an Oh-my-God-we-have-to-hear-this-thing standpoint, and the veteran boy band could use a creative shot-in-the-arm from a forward-thinking producer. Even if this was a Skrillex remix of “Larger Than Life,” we’d take it.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki has done the dance music crossover before, typically with David Guetta behind the board, but Skrillex’s warm textures could use a ferocious female at the helm. She recently worked with Diplo on Madonna’s “Bitch I’m Madonna”; time to call up the other half of Jack Ü.

Tyler, The Creator

Tyler remains a fascinating artist even when he is being exceedingly reckless with his style — even when his songs fall apart, his sense of daring never stops exciting. If a producer like Skrillex could harness his energy for a song or body of material, that danger could yield dazzling results.

Rihanna

Another female superstar that has extensively worked with various EDM pros, but has yet to link up with Skrillex. We could all use a new “We Found Love,” “Where Have You Been” or “S&M,” and Sonny could easily whip up something on which Rihanna would sound tremendous.

Danny Brown

The second half of Danny Brown’s brilliant Old album is a drug-addled kaleidoscope of rave music, with the Detroit rapper leading the party before coming down. Imagine a “Wild For The Night” featuring Brown’s unhinged yelp; hip-hop heads would salivate.

Gwen Stefani

“Baby Don’t Lie” and “Spark The Fire” were… fine. But the Gwen Stefani Comeback Machine needs to be oiled up with something truly earth-shattering. A Skrillex collaboration would give Gwen the juice she needs to get her third solo project off the ground, and (ideally) a banger to finally match the intensity of “What You Waiting For?”

Justin Timberlake

JT has largely relied on Timbaland to be his production guru, but if he ever decides to explore other collaborative options, there will be many artists waiting to lend their services. Justin Timberlake hasn’t made a slippery electronic single since “SexyBack,” and if Skrillex can make it work with the other Justin, he can certainly help this one, too.
