Lean On went from 0-100 in no time and was by far the biggest and most hyped Future Music track of 2015. It was hard to miss out on the track when you turned on the radio or went out for a night at the clubs, and that all around the world. Crowds at music festivals went mad as soon as the iconic melody rang out and even conservative radio stations couldn’t resist to play the track.
We shot from sunrise to sunrise the next morning, it was so tiring that the dancers & everyone on set were sleeping between the takes.
The song came with a supreme music video as you would expect it from such a musical production. But now Diplo – lead artist of the Major Lazer crew – reached out to his fans to tell the story behind the music video after joining the 1 billion views club. The video was produced under remarkable circumstances as Diplo states on his Facebook page. The crew and director Tim Erem shot the video in less than 24 hours between their tour dates in India. You can find the full post below the video.
