TOTD: MOTi & Major Lazer – “Boom” Feat. Ty Dolla $ign, Wizkid, & Kranium
A wise musician once said that the next big thing is music is simply going to contain a mixing and melding of genres and sounds. Today’s track of the day is the perfect example of this. MOTi has come together with Major Lazer, Ty Dolla $ign, Wizkid and Kranium for this winter’s next dance hit. The song is called “Boom” and it’ll probably be stuck in your head for the rest of the month.
“Boom” contains huge rap influences, combined with the structure of an electronic song in a moombahton style, mixed with that worldly sound Major Lazer has been playing with this year, most recognizable in his summer hit “Lean On.” The track has the uncanny ability to appeal to several audiences. It has some thug-style club lyrics, boasting about girls dancing in the club with bottles popping and all that jazz. Then, the track moves flawlessly to a more reggae feel as each artist takes their turn giving it all they’ve got, ending with that catchy beat bound to top the remix charts. Major Lazer has had an incredible year, and this collaboration with MOTi is bound to run through the electronic festival circuit this winter. Everyone and their grandmother will probably be making remixes of this one. So, check out today’s Track of the Day, “Boom.”
