Major Lazer has enlisted “Cha Cha” rapper D.R.A.M. for a VIP edit of their ballad “Powerful.”
The Ellie Goulding and Tarrus Riley-assisted track is the second single off the group’s Peace Is the Mission album and is climbing the Billboard Hot 100 (currently at 84).
In addition to D.R.A.M.’s verse, the VIP edit also adds five BPM and a more percussive drop.

D.R.A.M. Re-Releases ‘Cha Cha’ With New Instrumental

Rising rapper D.R.A.M. has re-released his party anthem “Cha Cha” with a new instrumental.
The original version, which has received over two million YouTube views, features a prominent sample from Nintendo’s Super Mario World.
Neither D.R.A.M. or Nintendo have confirmed anything, but it’s presumed that the rapper replaced the beat to avoid legal action from the gaming giant.
“Cha Cha” was originally released last September and became an underground favorite, thanks to a co-sign from DJ Jazzy Jeff and others. However, it wasn’t until May when Beyonce posted a video of her dancing to the track that it hit the mainstream. Within a week, “Cha Cha” became the most-added song on urban radio.
Despite losing the recognizable Nintendo sample and with it, a bit of energy, “Cha Cha” could still become one of the summer’s biggest songs.
Watch the music video below and grab the new version on DJcity.
