After months of hype, Major Lazer has finally released the collaboration with PartyNextDoor and Nicki Minaj titled “Run Up.” The song definitely plays on Diplo’s like for the dancehall sound and is a certified banger. According to Complex, “Run Up” is expected to be on Major Lazer’s upcoming fourth studio album, Music Is the Weapon.”
And while visiting Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show last summer, Diplo let us know some of the artists’ who might be featured on the album.
“Definitely we have Usher on it. [“Lean On” collaborator] MØ’s back on songs,” he said. “We have a song with Sam Hunt which is very unusual, but I love him. Travis Scott. I don’t even know; I have to go back…Sia is on a couple ideas, but one of the records might be her record. She’s definitely background vocals on a song.”
Last week Zeds Dead and Diplo dropped their visual for “Blame” (featuring Elliphant). The video is completely animated, with special credits out to Chris Yee and Babekuhl.
We start out in the middle of a galaxy with robot-like figures doing multiple things. As the base climbs, and eventually drops, the robots fight and ultimately crumble. It’s definitely an interesting sight.
