Mystical human being and noted fan of music Vin Diesel is planning to launch an EDM career, promising to “blow people’s minds.” The Fast and Furious franchise actor and producer has never been content with just sticking to one thing, as he’s previously made clear with forays into directing and even video game development alongside his acting career. He’s made music before, but this new venture of his takes things a bit further.
In a new interview with Los Angeles Times, Diesel announced that he is planning to get into the EDM world with a “monster track” he’s been working on with Steve Aoki. “What Vin brought to the table, I’ve never experienced before,” Aoki said of the collaboration. “I think it’s going to blow people’s minds.” It’s hard to imagine what EDM Vin Diesel might sound like, but he seems very confident, explaining, “I’m gonna get a Grammy before I get an Oscar!”
Diesel revealed that he cried when he first played the track for his girlfriend, but he remained quiet on when to expect the collaboration. It’s also important to note that Diesel will be providing vocals on the track with Aoki, not co-production duties.
