Major Lazer‘s spotlight in the mainstream is shining at an all-time high, thanks to their incredibly catchy hits “Lean On” and “Cold Water“. Certain to keep it that way is the release of their much-buzzed about new single, “Run Up,” featuring the rapping talents of Miss Nicki Minaj and Rihanna “Work” hit-maker PARTYNEXTDOOR.
The track, which sees additional production from Stargate and Jr. Blender, is poised to be a defining hit for Spring 2017. It maintains the sun-kissed vibes present in Major Lazer‘s predecessor “Cold Water,” while enforcing a stronger dancehall influence – obviously. “I’ma run up on you/ I’ma run up on you,” PARTYNEXTDOOR repeats throughout. It’s easy, breezy, and catchy as fu*k!
“PARTYNEXTDOOR is a good friend of ours. We’re always working in LA when he is around and we’ve cut a lot of music and we really believe in what he does and his style,” Diplo said in a statement. “He came up with a great song. I’ve always wanted to work with Nicki as well, she’s on our short list. Of course this record…. she just vibed with it, she loved the feeling and timing was right so we got her on it. So hopefully we can do a lot more with her next time, we’ve traded some music back and forth so hopefully we got some of that done.”
