Following hot on the heels of their star-studded hip hop collab Night Riders, dancehall demigods Major Lazer (pictured) return with Powerful, the fourth single off their upcoming album Peace Is The Mission, and they’ve brought along a pair of friends: Ellie Goulding and reggae star Tarrus Riley.
Powerful is a strong, sultry, and slow-moving single that mixes the smooth riddims of ML with the soaring vocals of Ellie and the croonings of Riley. Co-produced by Boaz van de Beatz and DJ Snake, it has all the elements of a massive radio hit, so get used to hearing it, well, everywhere.
Powerful is expected to release in May. Pre-order Major Lazer’s forthcoming album ahead of its June 1 release date here.
