MØ’s “Kamikaze” Single Collaboration With Diplo Is Here: Listen
After teasing her “Kamikaze” single for days on social media, MØ‘s latest tune has now arrived. Today (October 14), the Danish artist’s collaboration with Diplo premiered on Annie Mac’s show on BBC Radio 1.
“Kamikaze” follows the international wave of the massive “Lean On” single, due to its breezy synth + horn melodies, sticky-sweet vocals, a staccato hook that will instantly get stuck in your head and overall nonchalant vibe. Once the song ended, a super-bubbly MØ phoned in to discuss her love for the song and a new album (“It’s in the works,” she mused).
Read what MØ had to say about the new “Kamikaze” tune in a press release:
“I love working with Diplo. It’s always such a fun and open-minded creative process. It’s about making memorable songs but, more than that, it’s about making pop music that wants to push boundaries. I’ve been loving all kinds of pop since I first fell in love with the Spice Girls, but pop needs to bring something new to the table, it needs balls. And that’s what you get working with Diplo. Making ‘Lean On’ and being a part of that tornado these past eight months has been one of the greatest experiences in my life so far, and I’m super happy that ‘Kamikaze’ is made in a collaboration with the same group of my friends.”
“Kamikaze” is the latest taste of solo music from MØ since her 2014 debut LP, No Mythologies To Follow. Get into it via BBC Radio 1 below.
