Major Lazer

“We’re not making the world smaller,” says Walshy Fire, one-third of the global hit making behemoth that is Major Lazer. “We’re making the party bigger.” For Major Lazer, which also includes Diplo and Jillionaire, that is a noble mission, and the trio bring a sophisticated fusion of Caribbean and American music—Trinidadian soca, Jamaican reggae, American hip-hop and dance music—to dance floors across the world. Over the last ten years the group has expanded from a notoriously raucous side project into the biggest musical act in the world, crafting multiplatinum hits like “Cold Water” (featuring Justin Bieber and Danish singer-songwriter MØ) and “Run Up” (with Nicki Minaj and PARTYNEXTDOOR). With a combustible vocal turn by MØ and sharp beats by French producer DJ Snake, their ferocious 2015 single “Lean On” broke records for independent songs on pop radio to become one of the most popular songs of the 2010s: an eradefining smash around the world.
