Major Lazer & Bad Royale – My Number (Original Mix)
Major Lazer’s presence in the spotlight sits at an all-time high, thanks to their incredibly catchy radio hit, “Cold Water.” The track’s star power hasn’t derailed the trio from returning to their dancehall roots, with the genre’s purveyors recruiting their protégés Bad Royale for a fiery original titled “My Number.”
The reggae-tinged single starts slow, opening with a sample of “54-46 That’s My Number” by Toots and the Maytals, a Jamaican group that has no doubt inspired Major Lazer. The beat unexpectedly speeds up, building into an intense drop that is classically catchy of the two groups’ sounds.
Major Lazer are expected to drop an album in 2017, though it’s unclear at the moment if “My Number” will officially appear on the feature.
