Major Lazer x Justin Bieber x MØ - Cold Water

Not just dipping their toes, but diving straight into the Banger Ocean

For Major Lazer it’s been a pretty odd road. Their club floor smash ‘Pon De Floor’ was rapturously received by the underground, before a succession of chart-friendly hits peppered the scene with many copycats with mixed results. It all changed with ‘Lean On’ - the unmistakable soundtrack of the past two years, with Diplo’s excursion into Jack Ü with Skrillex providing welcome inspiration to a new era of dancehall sounds.

There’s a real sense of expectation then to Major Lazer’s next move, and boy does it smash them all over the place. ‘Cold Water’ is a refreshing tectonic shift in the shape of world-infused beats, the late-night strut after the early-evening blues of Jack Ü’s ‘Where Are U Now’. It’s only fitting for the redeemed culture-vulture Justin Bieber to soundtrack it, leading the charge over effortless breaks and shoulder-buckling bass - it’s a crime to refuse its invitation to dance.

It once again finds MØ at the helm of another ultimate dance floor filler - the perfect ingredient to complete the cocktail of styles and voices that has made Major Lazer and Diplo specifically the most exciting dance act on the planet. The clubs and there for the taking, the festival fields have already been won, it’s time to sip back that Major Lazer spirit - smoother than ever before.

On the rocks of course. It has to be cold right? Jamie Muir
