Major Lazer – Run Up Ft PartyNextDoor, Nicki Minaj

100000x100000-999

Major lazer dropped their latest banger ‘Run Up’ as a follow up to the successful ‘Cold Water’ with Justin Bieber and MØ. This time around, Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire have teamed up with PartyNextDoor and Nicki Minaj. ‘Run Up’ serves up a futuristic, afrobeat vibe. Mix that with Minaj’s fiery delivery (of which she originally wrote 16 verses for) and PartyNextDoor’s Caribbean influenced verse, and you’ve got yourself one infectiously catchy tune, perfect for the lead into Spring.

Speaking with Zane Lowe on  Beats 1, Diplo commented:

“I tried to get Nicki to do records with us for a couple years now. We happened to find the right one that made sense for her. She’s inspiring man, it’s crazy. I’ve never had an artist be so disciplined on cutting a song like this. She wrote sixteen different verses for this song.”

So what’s next for Major Lazer? While fans are eager for Music Is The Weapon as a follow up to 2015’s Peace Is The Mission, Diplo commented on the current music landscape:

“We know we’ve done a couple of singles that have gone multi platinum. We want people to know the song. We have over thirty songs so at any point it’d be easy to just drop the album but I’m not sure people digest our music like that anymore. They don’t listen to our album as much as they listen to a song or watch our videos.”
