Major Lazer Premeires ‘Cold Water’ Ft. Justin Bieber & MØ
Music fans have been waiting all summer for Major Lazer and Justin Bieber to align with MØ on the electronic group’s new single ‘Cold Water’. With the track due for release on July 22nd, Beliebers and EDM fans alike don’t have to wait too long to hear the summer anthem thanks to the international radio premiere of the single.
Co-written by Benny Blanco and Ed Sheeran, ‘Cold Water’ finds Justin treading the same, well, water he did on ‘Purpose’. The tropical sound has become a signature sound for Bieber and no one does it better than Major Lazer. It’s slightly disappointing that MØ has been reduced to just the bridge. After ‘Lean On’ was such a global hit, she 100% is under utilized – but perhaps that was a decision made by all the parties involved.
All in all, solid follow up to Justin’s ‘Purpose’ era and it should have him riding the summer radio waves well throughout the rest of the season.
