Major Lazer & Bad Royale – “My Number”
Diplo’s Major Lazer crew has teamed up with Caribbean bass quartet Bad Royale on “My Number,” a new track built around reggae legends Toots & The Maytals’ 1968 classic “54-46 (That’s My Number).” “It was Major Lazer that inspired us to start Bad Royale,” the group tells Billboard. “We were the self-proclaimed biggest fans and still are. Today, releasing a collaboration with them is honestly incredible to us.”
The song starts out sounding like a cover with some reworked vocals before exploding out into some serious EDM shit towards the end. Both acts have already been playing it in their live sets, and now, thanks to Dubset, they’ve cleared the Toots & The Maytals sample and can release the track as an official single. Listen below.
