BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac broadcast quite the drop when she premiered Major Lazer’s “Jessica,” which features Vampire Weekend Ezra Koenig, earlier today. The easy-going reggae cut fits into the same mold as Major Lazer’s “Can’t Stop Now” with a loopy, aloof island attitude, only this time accentuated by Koenig’s high-pitched warble instead of Mr. Vegas and Jovi Rockwell’s lilting duet.
Check out the winning formula below and pick up Major Lazer’s second album, Free the Universe, on April 15, via Mad Decent. Koenig’s own band releases its third album, Modern Vampires of the City, on May 7, courtesy of XL Recordings. Jah.
