LSD (Diplo, Sia, & Labrinth) – “Genius” Video

Diplo, Sia, and Labrinth have joined forces under the initial-appropriate name LSD. Their first single together, “Genius,” is out today with an animated music video.

First things first: Yes, there was already a pop supergroup called LSD featuring Grimes, Kreayshawn, Lady Tragik, and BloodPop. They released a single called “Don’t Smoke My Blunt Bitch” back in 2013. Some people remember:

Anyway, this LSD are launching with “Genius,” a song built around the hook, “Only a genius could love a woman like she.” It also involves Labrinth repeating, “I’m a ge-ge-ge-ge-ge-ge-genius,” with Sia chiming in, “He’s a genius!” She also sings this: “Oh you’ll be my Einstein, my Newton, my Galileo, and my Hawking.” The eclectic, loosely Caribbean production is definitely within the wheelhouse Diplo has established in recent years, while the songwriting is pure Sia. The video, meanwhile, is a psychedelic cartoon directed by Ben Jones and animated by Gabriel Alcala. Watch it below.

LSD have an album on the way this year via Columbia and a debut performance set for Governors Ball in New York next month. Here’s their band photo:
