Major Lazer "Lean On" song

Diplo’s many side projects have kept him rather busy in the last few weeks. Jack Ü, his collaborative duo with Skrillex, recently released a surprise album called Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü, featuring tracks with Missy Elliott, AlunaGeorge, Justin Bieber, and 2 Chainz. Now, the DJ/producer’s dancehall-leaning alter ego Major Lazer has unveiled “Lean On”, a new song featuring DJ Snake and CoSigned Danish singer .

Similar to Diplo and MØ’s previous joint track “XXX 88”, “Lean On” packs big beats and punchy melodies galore. MØ is an especially welcome presence, as her siren-like vocals are always able to draw the utmost attention. Listen in below via its colorful lyric video.

“Lean On” is reportedly off Major Lazer’s forthcoming new album, the follow-up to 2013’s Free the Universe. The record — one of many this year — is expected to drop in conjunction with Major Lazer’s FXX cartoon show.
