It’s been about two years since the last Major Lazer album release. Remember the massive star studded album Free The Universe? I doubt you can forget the massive singles “Jah No Partial” “Get Free,” or “Bubble Butt,” as these tunes long outlived the release date, blowing up at festivals and shows across the globe.
Well, the boys surpass any and all expecations with their latest LP Peace Is The Mission, featuring some already fan favorites such as “Lean On” with DJ Snake ft MØ and “Too Original” with Elliphant and Jovi Blackwell. This 9 track LP does not disappoint as Diplo, Walshy Fire, and Jillionaire bring to life the inherent Major Lazer sound. From the opening track “Be Together,” featuring Wild Belle to the hypnotic and sultry ballad “Powerful” with Ellie Goulding and Tarrus Riley to the infectious “All My Love” featuring Ariana Grande and Machel Montano, Major Lazer caters to those who not only love to sing about romance, but dance to it too. I think the real beauty of Major Lazer is in their ability to play into the sensual and sexy side yet also bring out the party anthems and hip shaking tunes. Try listening to “Blaze Up The Fire,” “Light It Up,” “Roll The Bass,” or “Night Riders” (which features Travi$ Scott, 2 Chainz, and Pusha T), without becoming overwhelmed by the sensation to lose all control.
If Peace Is The Mission, it’s safe to say that Major Lazer has achieved it as I couldn’t be more happy with this track selection and sounds. Be sure to grab your own copy by clicking the link below!
