Major Lazer Share Reggae-Infused Cover Of Frank Ocean’s “Lost”

Major Lazer's "Lean On," a collaboration with the French DJ Snake and the Danish singer Mø, just entered the top 10 on the Hot 100. In celebration, most of the team (minus Snake) reunited to cover "Lost," a sleek, pulsing track from Frank Ocean's Channel Orange album. Lazer and co. build on a long and fruitful tradition of reggae renditions of classic soul tunes: see Alton Ellis' "What Does It Take To Win Your Love" or the Heptones' "I Miss You." It's a testament to the durability of Ocean's track that it can be reworked easily in a new genre.

Listen below, and revisit FADER's feature on Ocean.
