Inside Major Lazer: 5 Great Songs From Major Lazer's Jillionaire and Walshy Fire
Juggernaut hits like "Lean On," "Light It Up" and "Cold Water" have earned them commercial stardom and catapulted their brand to the forefront of dance music.
You're likely familiar with the group's unofficial frontman, Diplo, whose laundry list of achievements seems to be growing by the day. In addition to winning multiple Grammy awards, he founded record label Mad Decent, garnered over a billion total streams (inclusive of his Jack Ü project with Skrillex) and produced for some of the biggest stars in pop music, including Madonna.
However, that's not to say Jillionaire and Walshy Fire aren't also cooking up heat with their solo projects. Billboard Dance hand-picked five songs by the Major Lazer members that should be added your playlist.
Jillionaire, Fuse ODG & Fatman Scoop - "Sunrise"
Jillionaire takes listeners straight to the tropics with "Sunrise," recruiting Fuse ODG and Fatman Scoop for the beachy production. Order yourself a daiquiri and kick back to this jam.
Jillionaire & Salvatore Ganacci (ft. Sanjin) - "Fresh"
When the sun sets, it's time to hit the club. Cue "Fresh." This bouncy cut is fueled with energy and made for late nights out.
Sanjin, Walshy Fire & Salvatore Ganacci - "Nah Tell Dem"
Walshy Fire teams up with Sanjin and Salvatore Ganacci here for a trap record with a hip-swinging rhythm. They hook you on the monotonous vocals that run atop a minimal beat.
Garmiani ft. Walshy Fire - "Voodoo"
"Voodoo" takes it back to the old school baseball days with an organ-based melody to pump up the crowd. The tune transitions into a jumpy big room sequence that's spiced with light percussion.
Jillionaire & Swick ft. T.O.K. - "Ants Nest"
The song is built more for a bottle-service club than an ant's nest. The big room track moves to a marching beat and sports some catchy reggae vocals.
