The legendary American EDM trio, Major Lazer, recently debuted their first track ‘Can’t Take It From Me’ featuring Jamaican singer-songwriter, Skip Marley from their upcoming album – that is rumored to present a collaboration with Colombian reggaeton singer, J Balvin as well. The new hit follows the beloved qualities from Major Lazer; the vocals of Marley perfectly complement the fresh, uplifting summer tunes, with inspiring lyrics that makes you feel unstoppable.
2018 marked the 10th year anniversary for the electronic dance music project, Major Lazer, created by Diplo (Thomas Wesley Pentz Jr.), and Switch, who after three years and an album release, left the duo. Shortly after, Diplo reformed the group with producers and DJs Jillionaire and Walshy Fire.
This new collaboration wrote history in the music industry by spanning numerous genres, ranging from house, mixing with reggae, afrobeat, reggaeton creating their signature unique melodies that conquered not only the radio charts but also the clubs all over the world. Throughout the years, they have worked with countless influential artists like SnoopDogg, Justin Bieber, Pusha T, Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande. But what brought the absolute commercial success to them was the song ‘Lean on’ released in 2015 collaborating with DJ Snake featuring vocals from Danish singer MØ. It rapidly climbed to the top of Billboard charts and by now, the music video reached more than 2.5 million views on YouTube, becoming one of the best-selling singles of all time.
Despite the great success, the trio might come to an end as in an interview with Complex magazine, Diplo referred to their new album as their ‘last one’. We all know he has plenty on his table at the moment, managing his record company Mad Decent, constantly creating quality content on his radio show ‘Diplo & Friends’ on BBC Radio 1 and besides it all, debuting their first album with Labrinth and Sia under the name ‘LSD’.
One thing is for sure, the fourth album by Major Lazer is coming, which means that we can look forward to brand new releases, very-very soon. Until then, let’s enjoy ‘Can’t Take It From Me’ and let us know if you like it as much as we do!
