“There's so much energy in Latin music right now and we love helping bring it back home,” Major Lazer tells Billboard.
Summer is not over, and Major Lazer knows it. The trio are getting ready to release the last hit of summer titled “Que Calor” with Colombian star J Balvin and Dominican singer El Alfa on Sept. 11.
“J Balvin and El Alfa both are two of the most exciting artists currently working to us, and artists that we have longstanding relationships with,” Major Lazer tells Billboard. “We've collaborated with Latin artists from the very beginning of Major Lazer -- I think many Americans forget how much of the Caribbean is Spanish-speaking, and that's a huge part of our influences.”
From the beginning of the year, both Diplo (ringleader of Major Lazer) and J Balvin announced they would release a song and, this week, Major Lazer shared the news on social media posting a clip that previews the sound of the song.
“There's so much energy in Latin music right now and we love helping bring it back home,” Major Lazer concludes.
