Major Lazer’s new album dropped this week, but that hasn’t stopped Diplo from releasing music under his own name.
Just yesterday, the Mad Decent chief’s collaboration with DJ Snake, “Drop,” was released as part of the Entourage soundtrack. The two have been playing it in their sets since January and now it’s finally available.
Although not mentioned in unofficial rips, “Drop” features Big Freedia, a New Orleans rapper who’s often credited for popularizing “bounce music.” The style has been a big influence on Diplo and can be heard in his underground hit, “Express Yourself.”
Watch an unofficial video for “Drop” below and download the track here.
