Album: Music Is the Weapon (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is a collaborative project between the Diplo-led Major Lazer group and the Dutch EDM duo Showtek. Diplo explained:

    "We came across this song running through Trinidad's underground scene with a creative collective called Freetown and turned the original reggae dub plate version into an inspirational festive and club song. We wanted something from that classic Major Lazer sound and got some amazing help from one of our favorite production teams: Showtek. We delivered something we just couldn't do without them."
