Major Lazer’s “Lean On” reaches #1 Global Spotify!

Congratulations to Major Lazer and team as “Lean On” becomes the biggest Spotify streaming song in the world today!

Major Lazer is the dancehall and reggae-inspired project comprised of DJs Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. In addition to being the group’s name, Major Lazer, is also the name of their fictional Jamaican ex-commando frontman.

Both of the previous Major Lazer releases have received widespread critical acclaim, and these releases opened doors for the group to collaborate with Pharrell Williams, Bruno Mars, and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, amongst many others.

In March, Diplo and the dancehall and reggae-inspired group released the upcoming album’s first single, “Lean On,” a collaboration with Danish electro-pop singer MØ and DJ Snake. The lead single is in rotation on pop radio stations, has been streamed online worldwide almost 300 million times.
