Sean Paul and Machel Montano are two of the greatest pop stars in the Caribbean. Sean Paul has scored more dancehall crossover hits in America than anyone else except maybe Shaggy, and Montano is the supreme lord of soca, the frantic Trinidadian dance-pop genre. In the past, both of them have worked with Major Lazer — Sean Paul on “Come On To Me,” Montano on “Sound Bang.” And now they’ve teamed up for the Major Lazer-produced “One Wine.” It’s more or less a fusion of Montano’s soca and Major Lazer’s hammering EDM, but there’s some lovely melody in there with all the BPM overdrive. Listen below.
The “One Wine” single is out now on Mad Decent.
