Major Lazer & Camila Cabello Have Made 'Over 20 Songs' Together: Exclusive
Major Lazer are dishing some major details about their studio time with Camila Cabello.
In an exclusive interview with Billboard Dance on Tuesday, the dance supergroup divulged more about their forthcoming collaborations with the former Fifth Harmony member. The trio’s founder Diplo has teased their studio time together multiple times on Snapchat, the latest being back in January alongside Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat.
And it seems the year-long stream of social media snippets resulted in a lot of unreleased material between them.
“We made like 20 songs with Camila Cabello,” Diplo says. “We love her.”
The Grammy winner also reflected on the time Walshy Fire took the “Bad Things” singer to one of her first club nights back in their hometown of Miami. “I do a party every Tuesday in Miami called ‘Rum N’ Bass’ at Coyo Taco, and she came through and nobody cared,” says Walshy. “And she turned way up. And it was dope, loud trap music.”
Diplo confirmed that there is a particular track in mind, set for release in the near future, but that “until we have the video and the song is on iTunes, you never know.” He adds, “But of course we have stuff with her. She’s done stuff with a lot of our friends, like Cashmere Cat, Benny Blanco, Frank Dukes – a lot of great producers we work with.”
There’s a good reason Camila has developed a close working relationship with the powerhouse trio: In the midst of her skyrocketing fame, she feels grounded when she’s with them. “Sometimes we just take for granted because we’re old, we’re not even famous,“ Diplo says. "When you’re young and you’re that amazing and famous like that, it’s hard to live and be normal. When we’re with her, she enjoys that time because we take her places where she can enjoy herself. We love her, her voice is amazing. We’ve done many demos.”
[Warning: This post talks about Hash Brown’s accident, so if you don’t want to hear about a kitty getting hurt don’t proceed. Just know she is okay now!]
I just wanted to take a moment to praise our Eggs Benedict, because he’s partly responsible for saving Hash Brown’s life.
In essence, Hash Brown nearly impaled herself on a support rod in the closet. It was a freak accident and she made no noise when it happened, so none of us knew. She immediately went under the bed (where she often sleeps), so from our perspective we had no clue anything unusual had happened at all.
Eggs saw her and became very distressed, which he expressed by trying to get our attention. He dragged poop out of his litter box and sat next to me biting my arm over and over. This is not remotely normal for him. We thought maybe he was just being freakishly pushy about dinner, so my husband went to feed him. That’s when we found Hash Brown.
I don’t mean to inappropriately anthropomorphize him; I can’t say that he was “trying to get help.” However, he was stressed and he responded by letting us know. If he hadn’t she may well have lost too much blood.
He spent the rest of the night looking for her and going to town on his scratch pads, which he does when he’s freaked out. Little does he know he made all the difference. She’s coming home tomorrow and she’s going to be totally fine.

Nicknames? The derby has heard the weirdest insults from these two.
Who worries the most? Benni is like a normal level of worry like did i lock the door or not. Mats gets up at 3 am with existential crises.
Who tops? Benni. I will not be moved from this stance bc ive suffered for years with lots of top mats fic and im still not convinced. Ive got weird mats characterization maybe.
Who initiates kisses? Mats. Though theyre not ones to PDA unless drunk or giddy from a win u kno.
Who wakes up first? Benni. Mats likes to lounge as much as possible.

Books I’m Super Into Right Now: Leviathan Wakes (and the rest of the Expanse series); this whole series was such a breath of fresh air, shucking cliches and cheap writing in favour of a brilliant show of a possible future, interesting and plausible science, awesome respectful relationships and romance, rich characters and worldbuilding, and a respectful show of queer folk and non-typical lifestyles.
Worst thing you’ve ever eaten/tasted: There are these tiny bitter eggplants that Thai folk used liberally in their red and green curries. Now, I thought they were peas.
They were not.
And they were vile berries of pestilence and foot sweat.
Our cat Pinky recently had kittens and we’ve only discovered them yesterday! As we have two dogs in the house that don’t like cats, they are outside and well looked after in the garden and the barn. The black and white kitten is called Narvin and one of the other kittens is called Wolsey after Benny’s cat and third one still undecided. Dad wanted to name the third kitten after Miles Richardson but brother wouldn’t allow it xD
