With the success of “Lean On,” Danish vocalist  is well on her way to stardom, and rightfully so–she glides over electronic soundscapes with a grace and character matched by few of her contemporaries. If you’re not familiar with the rest of her catalogue, we’d highly recommend giving her album No Mythologies To Follow a listen. Yesterday, Annie Mac premiered MØ’s latest Diplo-produced single, which serves as a fitting progression in their ongoing series of collaborations. “Kamikaze,” similar to “Lean On,” features a markedly downtempo backdrop with an understated catchiness designed to grow with every listen. Once again, MØ proves she knows exactly how to bring out the best in Diplo’s production and that not every pop song has to be obnoxiously formulaic. Here’s what she had to say about working with Diplo:

 I love working with Diplo. It’s always such a fun and open-minded creative process. It’s about making memorable songs but, more than that, it’s about making pop music that wants to push boundaries. I’ve been loving all kinds of pop since I first fell in love with the Spice Girls, but pop needs to bring something new to the table, it needs balls. And that’s what you get working with Diplo. Making Lean On and being a part of that tornado these past eight months has been one of the greatest experiences in my life so far, and I’m super happy that “Kamikaze” is made in a collaboration with the same group of my friends.

Here’s to hoping the stream of MØ and Diplo collabs continue!
