Listen: Major Lazer Get ‘Powerful’ with Ellie Goulding
Diplo continues to strike gold with his dancehall production crew Major Lazer, as evidenced by pretty much everything we’ve heard off the upcoming record Peace Is The Mission, due out June 1st. The star-studded collaboration record features with MØ and DJ Snake on “Lean On,” while 2 Chainz, Pusha T, Travi$ Scott, and Mad Cobra all guest on “Night Riders”.
Next up is Brit-pop princess Ellie Goulding guesting on “Powerful,” an old-school R&B fortified song that combines the group’s festival-bait bombing with Goulding’s saccharine melodics. Roots-reggae hero Tarrus Riley delivers the hook, which you can hear below in a BBC Radio rip.
