Major Lazer continues to drop new musical gems that make us yearn for summertime. Over the last month, the electronic dancehall project kept us dancing with club hits such as "Aerosol Can" featuring SoulBounce favorite Pharrell and "Lose Yourself." This time Major Lazer enlists Sean Paul to call all of the ladies to the dance floor in "Come On To Me." For those of you who are weary of Sean Paul's sudden musical detour into the EDM world, "Come On To Me" may not be your cup of tea. However, it is reassuring to know that Paul's vocals are very reminiscent of the Dutty Rock days. The song is a blend of Major Lazer's signature electronic dance beats with heavy dancehall rhythms and if you listen a little closer, you will hear a sample of the classic salsa horns from legends Willie Colón and Héctor Lavoe's "La Murga de Panama."
Major Lazer's five-track EP ,Apocalypse Soon, will be available on iTunes on February 25th. Whether electronic dance music is your thing or traditional dancehall is your preferred groove, Major Lazer is definitely succeeding at bridging the two worlds together. What do you think of the current music trend of blending dancehall and EDM?
