The lyric video for 'Run Up' has recently been unveiled.
Major Lazer have teamed up with PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj for their latest track 'Run Up', for which they unveiled a new lyric video this week. They're set to launch their fourth studio album later this year, though released details have yet to be announced.
Major Lazer are back with their new single 'Run Up'
The video for 'Run Up' was released yesterday (January 26th 2017), and was created out of Major Lazer's friendship with PARTYNEXTDOOR whom they frequently bump into while recording in Los Angeles. 'PARTYNEXTDOOR is a good friend of ours. We're always working in LA when he is around and we've cut a lot of music and we really believe in what he does and his style', said Major Lazer's Diplo on working on the track.
Diplo is set to release new music with Major Lazer next year, which he announced via social media.
The 37-year-old American DJ, who makes up one third of the electronic trio alongside Jillionaire and Walshy Fire - has announced he is working on another track with the band, which will be unveiled in January 2017.
The star shared the news via social media, which saw him share a preview of an unreleased track with PartyNextDoor.

Though she's kept fans waiting for her new album 'Anti', RiRi notched up over 1 billion streams for 2015.
Rihanna has been revealed as the most streamed female artist on Spotify in 2015, despite not releasing a new album. Fans of the pop queen clearly haven’t been too put off by the lack of new music, voraciously devouring her back catalogue as she racked up just over 1 billion streams for the year.
Spotify unveiled its end-of-year list on Tuesday (December 1st), which also showed Canadian rapper Drake to be the most streamed artist of the year altogether, with 1.8 billion plays of his back catalogue throughout the year after he dropped fourth album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late at the start of 2015.
Rihanna was the most-streamed female artist of 2015 on Spotify, though fans are still waiting for 'Anti' to appear...
New acts have been announced for the New Look Wireless Festival taking place in London this July.
Wireless Festival goers will be delighted to hear that new acts have been announced for this year's line-up. London's biggest pop festival is looking better than ever with some explosive first announcements.
The weekend of the 3rd-5th July 2015 will feature some of the UK and beyond's finest artists performing at Finsbury Park in London. Among new additions are A$AP Rocky, Mary J. Blige, Major Lazer, Stromae, Partynextdoor, Netsky, Robin Schulz, Tinashe, Rae Sremmurd, Collie Buddz and Pusha T.
A little like the first Major Lazer project - 2009's Guns Don't Kill People, Lazers Do - Free The Universe feels like it's been made by the guest list of the best party you could never get in to. Although Diplo's former partner in grime Switch has long departed the scene, the gallery of collaborators here is, if anything, even more eclectic than the last time round. This in retrospect is a move from a smarter-than-your-average producer, because in places the listener will feel a bit like playing spot-the-difference between this release and the last. Abysmal homage sleeve art best left unmentioned, this second stanza is very much a case of if it ain't broke, no need to.
Like the first time round this is a sub-project that's not really is taking its cues from the ragga and dancehall movements which thrived originally in the late 20th century, but this time there's more of a schizo feel to things. How? Well, take the opener You're No Good, complete with Danielle Haim - daytime job in the family folk-grunge business - heading up an ensemble on vocals to a song that would surely be a movie theme if James Bond had come from Kingstown and had his Red Stripe shaken not stirred. Not so much waving the flag for pop as wrapping it around her, Amber Coffman then adds equally subtle quality to Get Free; a languid beach jam otherwise lifted to heights of near perfection, dripping sunshine and a million miles away from the nut busting bass warfare of some of its neighbours.
The other personality is the one you'd recognise from previous ML hallmarks, a bonkers character never happier than when bending the chassis into the twerk friendly overload of gigs like Jet Blue Jet and Mashup The Dance. Never knowingly not in everyone's face meanwhile, Peaches brings some gaudy slackness (Example: "I can feel you wikileak") to the post electro clash of Scare Me. Who knows what the likes of Wyclef Jean felt when the studio walls started to bulge outwards, but as the daddy of the group he wisely takes the pace right down on the soulful life coaching of Reach For The Stars. The musical chairs can cause some disorientation and there's no doubt that there's a producer's mixtape approach to track sequencing, but none of the hired help seem to care too much. It's hard also to imagine Ezra Koening hanging much with the likes of Shaggy and/or Elephant Man, but on Jessica he manages the kind of reinvention which may leave his Ivy League band mates wandering what next; in a lilting part falsetto he chirps out some dubby treated nonsense rhymes over a set of clipped ska chops, sounding for the most part like he's having the time of his life. Whether sending up his preppy image deliberately or not, those who view Vampire Weekend as a one trick pony from whom the joke is long over should be delighted to hear his lack of taking anything too seriously.
