The Weeknd, Sia, Travi$ Scott To Be Featured On Next Major Lazer Album
Diplo revealed that Major Lazer is working with current chart king The Weeknd for his dancehall crew’s second album of 2015, along with Sia and Travi$ Scott, according to Billboard. We’re hoping this means the Sia collab that surfaced on the Major Lazer animated series made it onto the album because that thing sounded enormous.
Diplo spoke to the site at the iHeartRadio Festival over the weekend when he shared the feature details, adding, “People I’ve worked with in the past and just trying to work with on my next Major Lazer album, because I think people are expecting some big records again, so we’re back in the studio.” If you’ll recall, he worked with The Weeknd and Sia on the original version of “Elastic Heart” for the Catching Fire soundtrack in 2013, which served as one of The Weeknd’s first forays into mainstream pop, while Scott appeared on Peace Is The Mission track “Night Riders.”
Gwen Stefani and Iggy Azalea are also expected to be on the album, which is (for now) called Music Is The Weapon. Earlier this year, the producer said it’ll be out in November, although it sounds like they’re still putting it together so who knows if the trio can pull off the rare two-albums-in-one-year feat (something Rae Sremmurd is also aiming for this year).
