Album: Major Lazer Presents: Give Me Future (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This song comes from the soundtrack of Give Me Future, the documentary film about Major Lazer's performance in Havana, Cuba in the spring of 2016. The gig was the island's first-ever electronic dance music concert.
  • The song features vocals by MØ. The Danish pop singer is a longtime Diplo collaborator, having sung on "Lean On" and "Cold Water," two of Major Lazer's biggest hits.
  • The video, directed by Brantley Gutierrez, features a wonderfully awkward dance routine where the pair are obviously having a great time. "Mø and I have been working together since 2013," Diplo wrote on YouTube. "Being able to create this dance piece together was really special."
