Major Lazer's Twitter Account Deserves an Award...Or More Realistically, Several RT's
We’ve got mad love for Major Lazer. A trio composed of heartthrob and music producer, Diplo, DJ/producer, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire, Major Lazer has been active as a reggae influenced electronic music production group since 2009. The vibe of the group defined by the title of the trio’s 2015 album “Peace Is The Mission,” Major Lazer has put forth three albums and is currently at work on a fourth, which we hope to hear at some point in 2017.
The 2015 EP “Peace Is The Mission” holds various big name features, including vocalist Ariana Grande on the track “All My Love,” and Travis $cott and 2 Chainz on “Night Riders.” In existence for seven years, we’re still left wondering how the deeply musically innovative Major Lazer didn’t secure the 2016 AMA for “Favorite Artist-EDM,” where the group’s nomination placed them among fellow nominees, Calvin Harris and The Chainsmokers. A belated congratulations to The Chainsmokers on the win, however.
With our eyes extra focused lately on social media website, Twitter, it seems that Major Lazer is committed not merely to the crafting of masterly produced music, but to a daily serving of tweet delivered positivity and motivation to its 839K followers, making the Major Lazer Twitter account, @MAJORLAZER, one of our new favorites.
@MAJORLAZER offered some seriously good life advice to followers on December 13th, tweeting in its characteristic all caps style “WORK HARD EVERYDAY.” The roots of the December 13th tweet plunge far into Major Lazer’s Twitter membership, capable of being traced to the December 6th tweet that read “SURROUND YOURSELF WITH THOSE WHO SEE GREATNESS.” The account reminded followers on Christmas Eve that “PEACE & LOVE & HAPPINESS IS THE MISSION,” a mission confirmed by the group’s highly optimistic social media presence. While it’s very easy to complain within Twitter’s 140 character allowance, Major Lazer sets the example for Twitter users to focus on the cheerful, and entices us to RT everything.
