Major Lazer and MO Give Frank Ocean’s ‘Lost’ Some Reggae Love
You can't hit the beach or the club without hearing the summer hit "Lean On." If you weren't aware, the brainchild comes courtesy of Major Lazer and MØ. Now the artists have teamed up once again to cover Frank Ocean's track, "Lost."
While some covers stay true to the original, Major Lazer and MØ give Ocean's song a full makeover. From speeding up the tempo to laying the vocals on a reggae beat, the tune seems a little unrecognizable, especially if you're familiar with the original version on Frank's 2012 hit album, Channel Orange.
Frank's version has a toe-tapping drum beat and R&B feel to it, but the Major Lazer remix is much more fluid and has a relaxing vibe -- definitely the track to listen to on the beach with a frozen fruity drink in your hand.
Freebies are always welcomed and the Lazer Squad will be pleased to know "Lost" is available free of charge here. Diplo revealed the news on Twitter.
Major Lazer's Peace Is the Mission album is out now.
What do you think of Major Lazer and MØ's take on the Frank Ocean song? And even more importantly, where is that Frank Ocean album that is supposed to arrive this month?
