MØ And Diplo Reconnect For “Kamikaze”

“It’s about making new, exciting pop music.”

October 15, 2015

The trajectories of both Diplo and MØ's careers changed when they combined forces for Major Lazer's "Lean On." The song peaked at No. 4 on the Hot 100, showing that both artists had the power to create a smash. "Lean On" was even more successful outside of the U.S.: Spotify declared the track the "Global Song of the Summer."

So it's not surprising that Diplo and MØ hopped back into the studio. Their latest collaboration is titled "Kamikaze," and Annie Mac premiered the track on BBC Radio yesterday. "I love working with Diplo and his team," MØ explained. "It’s always such a fun and open and creative process—it's very free in a way... it's not about the stress of making a hit record, it's about making new, exciting pop music."
