This party track features Ne-Yo. It was the American R&B singer who created the initial buzz about Conor after he watched the teen singer perform a cover version of his track "Beautiful Monster," on YouTube, then contacted him afterwards.
Conor described the song to The Sun as being, "the one that is going to get stadium crowds on their feet, partying like they are in Vegas."
John Lennon's lead guitar work on Yoko Ono's "Walking On Thin Ice" proved to be his final creative act. It was upon their return home after completing laying down the track that Lennon was murdered by Mark David Chapman.
"Lean On" was originally sent by Major Lazer to both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj's camps as a slower reggae track. After both parties rejected the tune, Major Lazer recruited Danish singer MØ to supply vocals and recorded it themselves.
