Producer: Major Lazer, Afrojack
Album: Guns Don't Kill People...Lazers Do


Diplo and Switch's first Major Lazer album was touted as dancehall fusion experiment but really it was a high-concept spaghetti-western sci-fi planetary pop project. A single line of Vybz Kartel's vocals—"let me see your bestest wine"—was the only thing connecting this futuristic banshee of a beat to modern Jamaican music, and that was eventually scrubbed from later pressings of the tune. But that didn't stop this song from devastating every disco-tech in sight. And when Beyonce decided it was time to point out "who run the world," she knew just which beat to use.
