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 MØ.
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.
