Major Lazer and DJ Snake have unveiled a VIP of ‘Lean On’
It is hard to make the case that any song defined 2015 more appropriately than Major Lazer‘s inescapable “Lean On.” The track and accompanying video swept through pop-culture like a tidal wave, racking up a billion YouTube views and becoming the most streamed song on Spotify of all time. The track solidified the union of electronic and pop music, throttling the song’s creators to the top of charts, record books, and award ceremonies. Now, Major Lazer has returned to India’s largely untapped dance market for Mad Decent Block Party’s international expansion, and the trio saw it fitting to preview their upcoming VIP take on their 2015 smash hit from where it all began.
Departing from the track’s radio-primed appeal, Major Lazer turn up the original’s dancehall tropes with wailing siren work and some added vocal hype from Bunji Garlin’s “Jungle Bae” hook.
With a VIP of “Lean On” officially on the way and another full-length project, Music Is The Weapon, slated to land this year, Major Lazer are preparing to set another massive year into motion.
BIG THINGS IN STORE FOR 2016!! THE YEAR IS JUST KICKING OFF AND WE CANT WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL!!
