Major Lazer Is “Too Original” With Elliphant & Jovi Rockwell: Listen
Featuring Swedish artist Elliphant and Jamaican singer/songwriter Jovi Rockwell (who previously collaborated with the dancehall/electronic trio on 2009’s “Can’t Stop Now”), the song leans on the more Caribbean side compared to previously released singles. “Too Original” will no doubt be a favorite at this summer’s Mad Decent Block Party, thanks to the blaring horns, flecks of a patois accent, stomping percussions and frenetic synths.
“Too Original” is the latest track off Major Lazer’s forthcoming third LP, Peace Is The Mission. It follows the Ellie Goulding and Tarrus Riley-assisted “Powerful,” the heavy-hitting “Night Riders” with Pusha T, Travi$ Scott, 2 Chainz and Mad Cobra; Ariana Grande’s “All My Love” remix with Soca artist Machel Montano and “Lean On” featuring MØ and DJ Snake.
Look out for the new Major Lazer LP when it drops on June 1 via BECAUSE/MAD DECENT, and take a listen to “Powerful” below.
