Major Lazer & DJ Snake – “Lean On” (Feat. MØ)
Major Lazer are back with “Lean On,” the production team’s first new track of the year and what’s supposed to serve as the start for an onslaught of projects in 2015. Featuring vocals from pop up-and-comer MØ — whose No Mythologies To Follow was severely underrated last year — the track minimizes Major Lazer’s stereotypical dancehall influences, filtering them down into what basically sounds like … well, a MØ song, I guess. The quieter bits even remind me a little bit of “Take Ü There” without the huge drop, but I guess you can’t blame Diplo for going to the same well twice. Major Lazer worked on the track with “Turn Down For What”‘s DJ Snake. Listen below.
