International superstars Major Lazer – the collaborative project of Diplo, Walshy Fire and Jillionaire – release their brand new single ‘Blow That Smoke’ featuring Swedish pop sensation Tove Lo, out now via Because Music/Mad Decent.
Combining sun-drenched West African guitars with the band’s trademark massive hooks, the track is a blissful slice of Afropop guaranteed to follow ‘Cold Water’, ‘Lean On’ and ‘Know No Better’ as the band’s next big anthem.
Meanwhile, Tove Lo is one of the most prolific artists to emerge from Scandinavia in recent years, having accrued over a billion Spotify streams and featured on tracks for the likes of Charli XCX and Coldplay.
Listen to ‘Blow That Smoke (feat. Tove Lo)’ by Major Lazer on the Official Fantasy Premier League Music playlist on Spotify.
Speaking on her involvement, Tove Lo says “This song has been long in the making and I’m so happy about this collab!
“It started with me and Wes just sending ideas back and forth, until I sent this vocal I was unsure what to do with and they made magic with it! To me the song is about the sweet escape from your troubles or just mundane life by being a bit reckless and romantic.”
It’s been a whirlwind few years for the band that has seen them headline major festivals across the country such as Lovebox, Bestival and the Other Stage at Glastonbury (where they played to over 75,000 eager fans) and release countless platinum singles.
