Diplo reveals new Major Lazer and Lorde collaboration
Major Lazer have been responsible for some of the top-played songs of all time over the last few years since their pop scene emergence, with ubiquitous hits like the DJ Snake and MØ-assisted “Lean On” and the group’s sweeping Justin Bieber feature, “Cold Water.” Now, it appears Diplo has lured another notable hitmaker into the studio, this time enlisting New Zealand-bred superstar Lorde on what is likely to be another dominating hit. Unveiling the still-nameless track for a first listen on his Beats 1 Lazer Sound program, Diplo previewed the dancehall trio’s newest product, introduced by Lorde’s unmistakable vocals.
Lorde reworks Jamaican dancehall icon Yellowman’s 1984 standout, “Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt,” backed by a breezy, beach-primed steel drum beat that’s quintessential Major Lazer. The new collaboration also features vocal work by Jamaican MC Vybz Kartel. Details on the new collaboration are sparse, without an official title or release date available yet, though at first listen, the full forthcoming product will be well worth the wait.
