I’m going to miss the days when Major Lazer’s live show was just Diplo playing records and Skerrit Bwoy leaping off ladders while daggering. But the current-day three-producer version of Major Lazer has something that other version didn’t have: A geniune bona fide summer jam. “Lean On,” the group’s collaboration with DJ Snake and MØ is one of those hit singles that sounds great in just about every context. Last night, Major Lazer performed the track on The Tonight Show with MØ, a live band, a horn section, a troupe of dancers, and Diplo playing bass. Did you know Diplo knew how to play bass? I didn’t. Watch the performance below.
Major Lazer’s new album Peace Is The Mission is out now on Mad Decent.
