Diplo, Lil Pump, French Montana, and Zhavia team up to release the headbanging new track and music video for "Welcome to the Party."
The collaboration was part of the star-studded soundtrack of the superhero blockbuster movie Deadpool 2.

The music video, directed by Jason Koenig, sees Diplo and his collaborators enter a gritty, underground club where they sing and dance to "Welcome to the Party." The three-minute video is also interspersed with footage from the box office hit.
The track was released a few days after Deadpool 2 had opened in several markets around the world. The movie starring Ryan Reynolds has already unseated Avengers: Infinity War and grossed an estimated $125 million in ticket sales on opening weekend.
The music video also comes on the heels of "Ashes," another song from the movie soundtrack performed by Celine Dion. A viral music video saw the foul-mouthed comic book character do an interpretative dance and bicker with the 50-year-old diva.
The Deadpool 2 soundtrack also includes music from Air Supply, Skrillex, Dolly Parton, Cher, and more.
Diplo has also recently released a new track with Sia and Labrinth. The supergroup known as LSD dropped a music video for "Audio."
Lil Pump Reconciles With J.Cole
Meanwhile, rapper Lil Pump has revealed that his rumored beef with J.Cole has finally ended (if it actually even started). In a new interview, the 17-year-old said that he does not really have an idea what happened, but assured that he and the KOD rapper are in good terms.
"I think so," he said when asked if there was drama between him and J.Cole. "I don't know. I don't know what's really going on . . . Shout-out to J. Cole. Esskeetit. I mean, I don't know, man. Y'all gotta ask J. Cole what's going on, you know? We going through some shit, I don't know. Nah, we good, we good."
He also discussed his steep rose to fame in the past year. The young rapper claimed that he is having a lot of fun by doing exactly what he wants to do.
The "Gucci Gang" rapper received a nomination — his first — at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards held on Sunday, May 20, in Las Vegas. He was nominated for the Top Streaming Song category alongside Cardi B, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, but Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, the men behind "Despacito," who took home the trophy.
