â€œRun Up,â€ the new single from international superstars Major Lazerâ€”the group comprised of Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire, premieres today. The track, inspired as ever by the groupâ€™s Caribbean roots, features PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj.
â€œItâ€™s always important for us to work with people who are on the same wave,â€ says Diplo. â€œNicki and Party really helped us bring the classic Major Lazer style to create this perfect party record.â€
â€œMajor Lazer is all about making the world smaller by making the party bigger,â€ says Walshy Fire. â€œThis felt like the perfect song to start off 2017.â€
The bandâ€™s documentary Give Me Future, filmed at their historic 2016 show in Havana, Cuba, premiered last week at Sundance and is set for release later this year.
The group is currently touring worldwide, continuing their massive two year run. Their most recent track, â€œCold Waterâ€ featuring Justin Bieber and MÃ˜, reached #1 on the Top 40 airplay chart following its #2 debut on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 debut on iTunes in 68 countries.
