Major Lazer have released “Lean On”, a collaboration with “Turn Down For What” superstar producer DJ Snake and Danish it-girl MØ˜, and amassed a monstrous 21M plays on Soundcloud, over 65M streams on Spotify and over 20M views for the music video, making it Major Lazer’s most streamed song to date!
And now the trio have announced an equally huge UK headline tour to match! With dates across the country culminating in an epic London show at Alexandra Palace this October, Major Lazer are looking set to continue the momentum throughout the year.
Fans whove learned to associate Major Lazer with some of the biggest names in dancehall alongside up-and-comers and mainstream mainstays can expect even more exciting names on this go. PITM features guest contributions from Ellie Goulding, Elliphant, Wild Belle, MÃ˜, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Travi$ Scott, Jovi Rockwell, DJ Snake, Tarrus Riley, Mad Cobra, Nyla, Chronixx and a re-work of the Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Pt 1. motion picture soundtrack song “All My Love” featuring Ariana Grande from Trinidadian star Michel Montano.
What’s more, the face of the project, renegade commando cartoon character Major Lazer, has just received a life of his very own as FX Networks debuted the Major Lazer cartoon this April 16th as part of Animation Domination programming on FXX (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, The Simpsons, etc) With guest appearances from Aziz Ansari, Andy Samberg, TiÃ«sto, RiFF RAFF, Charli XCX, Ezra Koenig, Trinidad James and more, Major Lazer confirms that this will be one of the silliest and best sound-tracked years yet. After airing weekly on FXX, each episode will go up the next day for stream on Hulu and purchase on iTunes.
