Last year, Major Lazer enlisted Jidenna, Nasty C, Ice Prince and Patoranking for the fantastic “Particula”, which is still one of the hottest pan-African collaborations of all time. Now, they seem determined to make magic happen all over again.
The trio, fronted by producer extraordinaire Diplo, is not just one of the most successful and creative in the electronic dance world, but also one of the hardest-working. They are constantly playing shows, headlining festivals, and they always seem to have a new tune out.
These days, Diplo is busier than ever. His two brand new side projects, one with Sia and Labrinth under the name LSD, and the other with super producer, Mark Ronson, to form the duo, Silk City, are sure to keep him occupied. It’s not clear what the plans are for either of those groups, but singles have been shared from both, and albums are likely in the works.
However, if you’re a Major Lazer fan, fear not. The acclaimed electronic dance music trio took to Twitter to tease the release of a bunch of brand new bops this month, with most of the tracks set to feature beloved African artists.
They’ll be dropping four new songs throughout the month: “Tie It Up” with Raye and Mr Eazi; “Loyal” with Kizz Daniel and Kranium; “All My Life” with Burna Boy; and “Okrant/Balance Pon It” with Babes Wodumo and Taranchyla.
And, even better, the first music video was just released today.
Following the massive success of “Particula”, as well as the undeniable quality of the Mr. Eazi-assisted “Let Me Live“, we fully expect all these tracks to deliver.
