Notorious for churning out unexpected collaborations of the globally influenced variety, critically acclaimed trio Major Lazer flips French rap sensation MHD’s “AFRO TRAP Part.7 (La Puissance).” Translating to “The Power,” the track oozes confidence and raw energy. Major Lazer puts an Afrobeat spin on the original, which is part of a popular video series that has reached viral streaming numbers on YouTube. Additionally, the new remix soundtracks Puma’s latest “Be The One” campaign, visible above.  The new rework is the first single of a forthcoming remix pack, which is under wraps until February release.

Alongside the new remix, Major Lazer recently released a new collaboration with Cashmere Cat and Tory Lanez, which was co-written by pop magnates Ed Sheeran and Benny Blanco. Based off their recent offerings, the trio is not slowing down anytime soon and is set for a globe-trotting 2018.
