Listeners to Diplo‘s Lazer Sound iTunes radio show were in for quite a surprise earlier this week when the superstar producer teased a short clip of a somewhat unexpected collaboration. He premiered a new Major Lazer ID together with New Zealand’s main popstar Lorde and Jamaican vocalist Vybz Kartel for only 45 seconds, but the short clip is guaranteed to leave fans begging for more.
The teaser is not just unexpected because of the very mellow dancehall or reggae sound of it, but even more so because of the Twitter beef Diplo and Lorde had going on in 2014. Luckily the two stars seem to have made nice in the meantime, as Lorde proudly shared the 45-second music clip on her Twitter account this week.
The soundclip of the new Major Lazer ID might be short and not much more than a repeated vocal, it does seem interesting enough for all of the involved to set it for a release at some point: the teaser quite suddenly ends by Diplo saying “Oh, “We cannot let that one escape yet!”, hinting towards a definite release sooner or later.
Check out the still untitled ID of the Major Lazer x Lorde x Vybz Kartel collaboration below and let us know your thoughts on it.
