Step apart, Mr. Sheeran.
EDM consultants Major Lazer & DJ Snake now have Spotify’s most streamed music with Lean On. The ear worm, which has 526 million plays on the provider and counting according to Billboard, simply surpassed Ed Sheeran’s Pondering Out Loud to take the title spot.
The hit single was once a collaborative effort: Major Lazer wrote and recorded the track with visitor stars DJ Snake, Danish singer MØ, French home producer Martin Bresso, and Jr. Blender.
At The Beginning released in March 2015, Lean On has had an immense year commercially. After a relatively slow begin stateside, it reached quantity four on the Billboard Sizzling One Hundred in August, and persevered to spend 10 consecutive weeks within the Top 10. The music also cleaned up globally, charting in virtually Forty international locations including the U.Ok., Germany, Canada, Australia, and Brazil.
That’s particularly spectacular making an allowance for the track’s humble beginnings, released essentially via LA producer/Major Lazer band member Diplo’s Mad Respectable label.
“We wrote this song with MØ very early from an instrumental Jr. Blender created in some sessions in Trinidad,” stated Diplo in a Facebook submit.
“It used to be a strong hook. Very large to me but the production was once missing an attitude we would have liked. A 12 months later I remixed the music at a fully different tempo and requested DJ SNAKE for a signature put up chorus. After he did his factor me, MØ and Blender rewrote the music at the new tempo in Las Vegas and made one thing very distinctive that became our album’s lead off single.”
Main Lazer are currently in the midst of a worldwide tour, and will operate at the Latin Grammys on November 19. The staff will re-release the LP for Lean On, Peace is the Mission, with DJ Snake on November 27 with 5 new tracks.
