SINGLE REVIEW: Major Lazer feat. Justin Bieber, MO – Cold Water
BOP ALERT! BOP ALERT! When you combine the names Major Lazer, Justin Bieber and MO in one title then you’re already expecting nothing short of amazing. And they deliver that. “Cold Water” may just be one of the biggest pop/dance songs to drop in 2016. From the infectious hook, to the hypnotising production and smooth vocals this song has HIT written all over it. It has elements from all your favourite chart toppers with acoustic intro reminiscent to “Love Yourself” while a subtle “One Dance” similar tribal beat comes in before a beat drop that is worthy of the success “Lean On” had. I honestly think that’s the best way to describe this track and it’s not me trying to be shady at all but this song does put small familiar elements together to create one massive moment and adds strong and quotable lyrics on top of that. “I won’t let go, I’ll be your lifeline tonight” // “Cause we all get lost sometimes, you know? It’s how we learn and how we grow”. So now that the world is over their “I hate Justin Bieber” stage and have forgotten MO’s unfortunate SNL appearance, I think this song may just be what they need to indulge in.
