Stream Major Lazer’s latest album ‘Peace is the Mission’
Major Lazer’s fourth studio album Peace is the Mission began its trail to release with the world-conquering “Lean On,” and now the Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire fronted trio has unveiled the entire full length effort. True to form, Lazer’s latest album blends fringe genres with just the right amount of pop culture knowledge to make it easily digestible for a mass audience. There are elements of reggae, dancehall, hip hop, dance pop, dub and everything in between packaged in this 9 track effort that will serve as the first half to a ‘Peace is the Mission / Music is the Weapon’ concept — the second half will arrive in late summer. Thanks to a handful of high profile collaborators including Travi$ Scott, Ariana Grande, Ellie Goulding and Pusha T, ‘Peace is the Mission’ is the project’s most pop-catered output to date, but there’s no reason to worry as they haven’t compromised a single piece of their eccentric identity. Is this an album of the year contender? You decide.
