Major Lazer and Tove Lo invite listeners to kick back and burn one, as they’ve materialized their latest track, “Blow That Smoke,” in what seems like record time after teasing a preview of the new track on Twitter earlier this week.

“Blow That Smoke” has been released at peak momentum for both parties, as each gears up for new forthcoming ventures. For Swedish pop singer Tove Lo, it’s her new film, Blue Lips, due Friday, October 19. For Major Lazer, “Blow That Smoke” sees the trio take a break from their Afrobeat onslaught of releases to return to an infectious, dancehall-crossover design that has enough legs to hold its own alongside the super group’s historic “Lean On.” The single also serves as the latest single off their impending farewell album.

Paired with a lyric video in classical Rasta-style animation, “Blow That Smoke” poses to be an anthem in the dance-pop domain through 2018’s end and beyond.
