Major Lazer specialize in island-inspired beats which have been proven in the past as an excellent pairing with Nicki Minaj’s scintillating rap verses. The Diplo-led entourage had been pursuing her for sometime to collaborate and the finished result is certainly worth the wait for fans of both parties. “Run Up” features a signature Major Lazer dancehall hook whose deep bass undertones give body to its light, tropical synth topline. In addition to Nicki Minaj bringing the heat with her freestyling prowess, PARTYNEXTDOOR also adds his vocals into the mix as the track’s chorus. If the amount of combined star power on “Run Up” doesn’t already cause a stir, its irresistibly catchy foundation and spitfire flow are likely to entice listeners into putting this one on repeat.
