Go big or go home, says Major Lazer‘s latest collaborative stunt. The latest release from the trio of Diplo, Walshy Fire, and Ape Drums taps Puerto Rican rapper Guaynaa for a reggaeton burner, following closely behind the dancehall outfit’s earlier 2021 original “Pra te Machucar” which, in a similar vein, united a heavy hitting ensemble including Ludmilla, ÀTTØØXXÁ, and Suku Ward.
