A BRAZILIAN DJ IS TRYING TO GET ATTENTION WITH A NEWSPAPER AD AND A “DEVIL PRAY” REMIX

T9vuIu8Instead of starting a Twitter campaign, Nick Deboni seeks Madonna’s remix approval through the Los Angeles Times.

Like Madonna once said, life is a mystery.

So when an 18-year-old DJ named Nick Deboni placed a classified ad in the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday (Aug. 11), it’s no wonder he was channeling one of his favorite singers.

The strange ad shows a large photo of Deboni’s face with text saying, “I published this ad to reach you Madonna and ask you, please, to approve my remix.” He is referring to his remix of the pop star’s “Devil Pray,” and he included links to his official Facebook and SoundCloud pages in the ad.

Billboard confirmed with the L.A. Times classifieds office that the ad ran Tuesday in the News section on page 8. The image of the ad began trending on Reddit later in the day and has gained more than 130,000 views.

According to Deboni’s SoundCloud, this is his first remix, and it has had over 60,000 plays. He has also posted original mixes that have gained more than 140,000 plays. The DJ plays at Brazilian nightclubs and has racked up more than 67,000 likes on his Facebook page.

Madonna’s representatives did not immediately respond to Billboard’s request for comment.
