EDITORS’ NOTES

After almost soundtracking 2015 with Bollywood-infused banger "Lean On", Major Lazer set a terrifyingly high bar for their second album. But Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire simply dusted down their contacts book, sharpened up their dancehall-friendly carnival dubstep and serve up some monster choruses. The stars all earn their spots: Ellie Goulding is smouldering on “Powerful”, Ariana Grande nicely restrained on “All My Love”, while Travi$ Scott, 2 Chainz, Pusha T and Mad Cobra all slay on “Night Riders”’ staccato flow.
