Jillionaire Steps Away From Major Lazer, Replaced By Ape Drums

Jillionaire Steps Away From Major Lazer, Replaced By Ape Drums

If you’ve had the opportunity to catch Major Lazer live in recent months, you may have noticed only Diplo and Walshy Fire rocking the stage. Well, after Governor’s Ball this past weekend it seems clear that longtime collaborator Ape Drums will now be taking the place of Jillionaire going forward. This news has been confirmed by Billboard.

After eight years with the trio, Jillionaire has officially left Major Lazer to pursue a solo career.

There has been no official statement from the Caribbean-influenced trio just yet but we can imagine they will look to clear the air on this news sooner rather than later.
