Major Lazer, the side project of producer Diplo, has put an interesting spin on the biggest song in the country by remixing of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' chart-topping "Can't Hold Us."
The remix, which also brings in Swappi and 1st Klase, incorporates Diplo's signature reggae influence as well as some trap beats while relegating Macklemore's flow to the background. The result is a hard-hitting, dancefloor-ready version of the single that keeps Ray Dalton's indelible hook intact.
Major Lazer released its sophomore album “Free the Universe” in April, and have recently remixed the No Doubt tracks “Settle Down” and “Push and Shove.” Following a performance at Haze Nightclub in Las Vegas on Thursday night (May 23), Major Lazer will head overseas for festivals like Glastonbury, Sonar Festival and Amnesia this summer.
Meanwhile, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Can’t Hold Us” just spent its third consecutive week atop the Hot 100 chart.
