"Powerful" also features reggae singer Tarrus Riley.
Turn down the lights because Major Lazer's just-released single "Powerful" featuring Ellie Goulding and reggae singer Tarrus Riley is about to get you in the mood.
"Powerful," which serves as the third single release off Major Lazer's upcoming LP Peace Is The Mission, surfaced on Wednesday night (April 22) and brings all sorts of vibes to the table. Over a slow building reggae-tinged instrumental that later bursts in all directions, Ellie and Tarrus take turns singing about a romantic intensity like no other. While Tarrus provides a thick Jamaican accent on the hook, Ellie offers up her raspy vocals as she circles around rhyming lines about being entranced by the D, or maybe he really does just have a nice smile.
I couldn’t leave even if I wanted to/ ‘Cause something keeps pulling me back to you/ From the very first time we loved/ From the very first time we touched/ The stroke of your fingers/ The scent of you lingers"
