“We’re not making the world smaller,” says Walshy Fire (a.k.a. Leighton Walsh), one-third of the global hit making behemoth that is Major Lazer. “We’re making the party bigger.”

For Major Lazer, which also includes Diplo (Wes Pentz) and Jillionaire (Christopher Leacock), that is a noble mission, and the trio bring a sophisticated fusion of Caribbean and American music to dance floors across the world. Separately, they’re three distinctive artists with unique perspectives grounded in the vibrant culture of the Caribbean, but together, they’re something unique, something greater than the sum of its parts.

Over the last ten years the group has expanded from a notoriously raucous side project into the biggest musical act in the world: a global supergroup for the 21st century crafting wildly imaginative—and imaginatively wild—songs that have raised the stakes for pop music. In 2015 they hit number one in 22 countries with their era-defining single “Lean On,” featuring French producer DJ Snake and Danish singer-songwriter MØ, and “Cold Water,” their rousing 2016 summer anthem with Justin Bieber, went triple platinum in the U.S. alone.

Over the last ten years, the group has worked with artists from every continent (okay, except Antarctica), some of whom are well-known and some of whom are on their way up: Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Snoop Lion, Pharrell Williams, Vybz Kartel, among many others. By uniting this loose community of similarly adventurous artists, all of whom are helping to expand the party as well as the possibilities of pop music, Major Lazer have become something more than an American pop act. Instead, they’re truly global in their reach, with billions of streams across various platforms and number-one singles around the world. In March 2016, the trio played to more than half a million fans in Havana, Cuba, a historic event chronicled in the new documentary Give Me Future.

“We create this Carnival atmosphere for people, like a Caribbean party where you’re dancing in the streets,” says Diplo. “That’s the vibe we’re trying to create, the language we’re trying to write. It doesn’t sound like anything else, because no one has done this kind of fusion before. Because of that, we don’t have a roadmap. We don’t always know if we’re doing it right, but we’re going to keep doing it.”

In other words, that party is only just getting started.
Tory Lanez
Tory Lanez
Tory Lanez (born July 27, 1992) is an Canadian-born rapper, singer-songwriter, and producer.

He was previously signed to Sean Kingston's now-defunct record label, Time Is Money Entertainment, but left shortly afterwards to become an independent artist.

Between the years of 2007 and 2012, he had released over 19 mixtapes, before engaging into a major-label bidding war. In 2013, he signed with Universal Music's Canada-based label, NoonNight Limited, which is distributed exclusively in the United States by Interscope/Geffen/A&M. During that time, he engaged into several rap battles with many up-and-comers associated with multi-platinum selling Canadian hip-hop soul artist Drake (who later targeted Lanez on his 2016 diss track, "Summer Sixteen").

On July 31, 2015, he signed to record producer Benny Blanco's label, Mad Love, and shortly released his debut single, "Say It". However, despite the fact that he was only signed to NoonNight/Interscope, before collaborating with Blanco, Tory Lanez first made his guest appearance on American rapper Meek Mill's "Lord Knows", which later appeared on the soundtrack to the 2015 boxing drama, Creed and first made the song list of Mill's sophomore studio album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, which was released in June.

By the end of 2015, Tory Lanez became heavily involved in the 7 Rivalries in 7 Days, the most controversial event in music rivalry history. The rivalries listed by daily are listed below:
- Ja Rule vs. Chief Keef
- Dej Loaf vs. Tamar Braxton
- Young Thug (2) vs. J. Cole
- Tory Lanez vs. Jeremih
- Azealia Banks vs. Ciara (2)
- Nicki Minaj vs. Alessia Cara
- Alicia Keys vs. Kimberly Jones

In 2016, he released two singles, "Karrueche" (an allude to actress/model Karrueche Tran) and "L.A. Confidential", before releasing the highly-acclaimed mixtape, The New Toronto, the next week after.
