What We Know About Major Lazer’s New Album
Last week, Major Lazer returned to the airwaves with a brand new long awaited collaboration with PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj. The song, called “Run Up” has since caused much speculation online regarding albums from both Nicki Minaj and Major Lazer.
While Nicki has been keeping information regarding her fourth studio album under wraps, Major Lazer founder Diplo has been teasing their new project all over social media.
Here’s what we know so far.
Major Lazer’s fourth project is confirmed to be titled Music is the Weapon, seeming to be a continuation of their 2015 album, Peace is the Mission.
While Major Lazer is yet to confirm an official release date for their fourth album, their past three have all been released at late spring/early summer dates. It is likely that the EDM trio will repeat this pattern for Music is the Weapon.
The project’s lead single, “Cold Water”, featuring Justin Bieber and MØ was a massive pop hit last summer. Their latest single “Run Up” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj is promising, especially with Nicki’s fourth album underway. Aside from these two songs, Major Lazer has teased collaborations with The Weeknd, Travis Scott, and former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello. Frequent Diplo-collaborators Ariana Grande and Ellie Goulding are also linked to the new Major Lazer project.
While it looks like we’re still a good way away from the release of Music is the Weapon, the Diplo-founded trio’s new album is sure to be a success. If the album contains songs similar to their previous hits “Lean On,” “Light it Up,” and “Powerful”, Major Lazer is sure to have the summer on lock. In the mean time, check out their latest single, “Run Up” above.
