Diplo has been a busy boy of late, having helped to produce Madonna's new album, done a Beyonce and surprise released his new album with Skrillex under the Jack Ü moniker, pissed off nearly everyone on Twitter, and has now delivered the first track from the upcoming third Major Lazer album.
'Lean On' is a collaboration with DJ Snake, the French producer best known for his single 'Turn Down For What', and features the vocals of Danish singer MØ. It's an infectiously catchy jam that sounds more Trap/Moombahton than the usual Reggae and Dancehall vibe of other ML tracks. I know the previous words won't mean much to everyone, so just play the video and make up your own mind, ignoring the incessant need to label everything.
Further details on the LP suggest that guest artists will include Pusha T, Ariana Grande, & Ellie Goulding, but didn't technically state whether 'Lean On' will make the final cut. Also in the works is a Major Lazer cartoon, set to air in 2015. Probably not one for the kids however...
Spring only technically began a couple of days ago, and yet when Major Lazer starts playing, it feels as if Summer must be close.
