Major Lazer continue release run with Guaynaa-supported ‘Diplomatico’
Go big or go home, says Major Lazer‘s latest collaborative stunt. The latest release from the trio of Diplo, Walshy Fire, and Ape Drums taps Puerto Rican rapper Guaynaa for a reggaeton burner, following closely behind the dancehall outfit’s earlier 2021 original “Pra te Machucar” which, in a similar vein, united a heavy hitting ensemble including Ludmilla, ÀTTØØXXÁ, and Suku Ward.
Like its Diplo-referenced wordplay, “Diplomatico” exudes a playful character spearheaded by Guaynaa’s brazen verses. In its short span, the track delivers mischievous, yet sultry subtleties with its electronic-injected percussive patterns and sparing use of brass. Stream below.
