The group’s fusion of big room and trap with reggae and dancehall had attendees jumping on their feet instantly. At one point, the headlining performance literally turned into a workout session that involved the audience doing jumping jacks to the beat.
Major Lazer cooled downed the synchronized crowd later on, though, with a cover performance of their new single “Know No Better”, courtesy of Camila Cabello — the first of two special guests.
Up next was Colombian sensation J Balvin who Major Lazer brought out to perform his new hit “Mi Gente”. The Hot 100 Stage turned into a full-on party that only became rowdier when the trio transitioned into their own hit, “Lean On”.
Cue the pyro, sparklers and CO2 cannons on the track’s eruptive drop. And that’s a wrap!
