Frank Ocean took to Tumblr earlier this year to break his silence and announce a new album to be released this July. We now have a pleasant surprise to hold us over until he drops the album.
To catch us all by surprise, Major Lazer has utilized MØ's vocal abilities to cover Frank Ocean's “Lost,” and it works perfectly. The infectious singer MO took the world by storm and inspired countless remixes of her song "Don't Wanna Dance,” and continues to impress as she pays respect to the original on this cover. Diplo brought his A game on this irresistible instrumental to bring a new light to Frank’s hit as he’s reimagined the song as a Major Lazer style reggae, summertime jam.

Major Lazer, DJ Snake, and MØ's hit single "Lean On" from Major Lazer's latest album Peace Is The Mission continues to become one of the biggest songs of the year and has already seen a wide array of remixes, but today we might have one of the most exciting yet. LA producers Dillon Francis and Jauz team up for the first time and they have completely flipped the song upside down into a full on festival ready trap weapon of a remix.

"India is special and its beauty absolutely humbled me. When we toured there as Major Lazer, it was mind blowing to see our fan-base and we wanted to incorporate the attitude and positive vibes into our video and just do something that embodies the essence of Major Lazer. Major Lazer has always been a culture mashup and to us, India feels like some kind of special creature with one foot in history and one firmly in the future. The experience is something we’ll never forget. “
