Major Lazer + Justin Bieber Score A Dancehall-Lite Win With ‘Cold Water’
Justin Bieber will probably never release a song as thoroughly uplifting, danceable and straight-up fire as 2015's tropical house-inflected "Sorry," but his latest collaboration with Major Lazer — titled "Cold Water" — comes pretty close.
"Cold Water," which is set to be the first single off Major Lazer's forthcoming album Music Is The Weapon, due out later this year, officially dropped late Thursday (July 21) on iTunes.
The song — which also features vocals from past Major Lazer collaborator MØ — is similar to “Sorry” in its breezy, dancehall-lite sound, and it’s a solid (if also late) contender for Song of Summer 2016. Justin Timberlake wishes "Can't Stop The Feeling" were this chill. Listen below on Apple Music:
Bieber first hinted at the track back in May, when he tweeted Diplo, "when are we bringing this new music?"
