Major Lazer unveil their new track ‘Particula‘ ft. South Africans Maphorisa and Nasty C, Nigerians Ice Prince and Patoranking, and Nigerian-American recording artist Jidenna – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
Taken from Major Lazer’s surprise ‘Know No Better‘ EP, ‘Particula‘ sits alongside the EP’s title track which has been streamed more than 232 million times to date, and ‘Sua Cara‘ featuring Brazilian superstars Anitta and Pabllo Vittar, which was one of YouTube’s biggest music video launches of the year with 217 million views.
Expanding upon the group’s global sound, ‘Know No Better’ takes inspiration from their travels to Pakistan, Cuba, South America, Africa and beyond, while, at the same time, paying homage to their Caribbean roots.
‘Know No Better’ also features appearances from Machel Montano, Busy Signal, Sean Paul, Konshens, J Balvin, as well as production work from the likes of Jr. Blender, Boaz van de Beatz and King Henry.
The group – currently touring the globe – will now be hoping their latest offering follows the worldwide success of ‘Run Up’ featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj, ‘Cold Water’ featuring Justin Bieber and MØ and ‘Lean On‘ with DJ Snake featuring MØ, one of the most successful songs of all time.
Major Lazer are a combined trio of record producer Diplo, plus DJs Jillionaire and Walshy Fire.
