Converse shoes have this series called “Three Artists, One Song” where they bring together artists to put together an awesome track. It is quite an interesting group of artists. You have Frank Ocean who kills it in the R&B genre, Mick Jones and Paul Simonon from the legendary The Clash, and Diplo as we all know. They were able to all come together and create this beautiful track titled “Hero” along with West Los Angeles Children’s Choir. Apparently, Diplo, Mick Jones, and Paul Simonon produced the track for three months and afterwards, Frank Ocean added the smooth lyrics. Diplo had this to say:
The Clash were always teachers to me, even before I shared a studio with Paul and Mick. Their musical anarchy and constant attitude to disregard rules and forge their own path was inspirational to me. They meant death to genres, music and message above everything. Frank lives by the same creed in being married to his vision and seeing it through at any cost. We had to challenge each other to make something that we hope no one could expect and Converse valued everyone’s artistic freedom to let us shine throughout the past few months to make this thing happen.
