Listen: Dillon Francis and Major Lazer team up to make you bounce

We’ve still got another six weeks to go before the October 27 release of Dillon Francis’s debut album Money Sucks, Friends Rule, but he’s keeping the waiting game interesting. After commanding our attention with a tracklisting of all-star collaborations, we’re getting an early listen to his Major Lazer team-up, We Make It Bounce.

Based on the two previously-aired album cuts – the radio-geared ‘When We Were Young’ and moombahton gem ‘I Can’t Take It’ – we already knew it’s going to be a genre-spanning listen. We Make It Bounce (which premiered today via Idolator) continues that theme, with vocals from reggae MC Stylo G. Here’s the all-caps recommendation from Dillon himself: “AS I SAY AT EVERY SHOW I NEED TO SEE YOU BOUNCING TO THIS SHIT!”

This track also welcomes back the Major Lazer crew to our speakers, following their February 2014 EP Apocalypse Soon. Don’t expect the collective to stay quiet for much longer, though; according to Diplo, fans can expect a new Major Lazer album in early 2015. “There are a lot of big name acts we hope to be featured on the album,” he told Idolator. “I’ve been working with a lot of different people the last couple of years, so I’m pulling all the favours for this record for sure.” Take a listen to We Make It Bounce below.
