Listen to Major Lazer on Spotify
Did you know?
Danish emerging popstar MØ cemented her place in pop music with appearances on a few hit tracks like “One More” alongside Elliphant and “Beg for It” with Iggy Azalea, but it was “Lean On” which she collaborated with Major Lazer and DJ Snake on, that really put her name in lights. In November 2015, Spotify announced that “Lean On” had overtaken “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran as the application’s most-streamed song of all-time with a record-shattering 526 million plays worldwide. Another huge milestone was achieved by the catchy song, its music video on YouTube hit over 1 billion views!
“Lean On” was originally pitched to both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj as a slower more reggae-influenced tune. Both rejected it leading MØ to get the honor of lending her vocals to the track.
