Major Lazer and MØ cover Frank Ocean’s ‘Lost’ [Free Download]
Major Lazer are one of electronic dance music’s chameleons, with sounds that range from dancehall bangers to radio-ready hits. Following the success of their collaborative track “Lean On,” Major Lazer have recruited vocalist MØ to cover singer-songwriter and former Odd Future member, Frank Ocean.
“Lost,” which appeared on Ocean’s 2012 album Channel Orange, is a soulful song with melancholic narration of a drug dealing man and his drug mule girlfriend. Major Lazer and MØ completely rework the track to add extra bounce and radiance, resulting in a reggae-inspired cover that would comfortably slip into forthcoming summer DJ sets.
Though this cover of “Lost” sounds completely different from the original, it somehow retains the same spirit of Ocean’s version, proving, once again, what we already know: Major Lazer and MØ make a great team.
