Major Lazer recruits Ty Dolla $ign for a new ‘Lean On’ remix
Quite possibly the song of the summer that has seen more remixes than any other track over the past four months, Major Lazer and DJ Snake found the holy grail of crossover anthems with their hit, “Lean On.” From Jauz & Dillon Francis‘ trap-meets-jungle terror flip to Tiesto & Moti’s main stage adaptation, “Lean On” has seen its fair share of re-imaginations by other producers, but the dream team of Major Lazer & DJ Snake felt their golden goose needed one more modification with Ty Dolla $ign in the mix.
Leaving the instrumental almost entirely intact, the quartet of producers simply hand over MØ’s introductory vocal position to Ty Dolla $ign, who slides right in to lay his lyrical finesse over the dancehall pop smash. After the track’s original drop finishes out, MØ resumes her role as lead vocal and takes the track home just how we know and love it. Vocal overlays on dance sensations, like Chris Brown on “Five More Hours” and Big Sean on”Open,” have had a questionable past with fans so the question remains: Does Ty Dolla $ign hit or miss the mark on his remix of “Lean On”?
