Congratulations to everyone involved with MAJOR LAZER’s global hit “Lean On,” with DJ SNAKE featuring MØ, which is #1 at Top 40 radio. “Lean On” is the first ever song released by an artist-owned and operated independent label to reach #1 on the Top 40 chart in MEDIABASE history. From its first spin in FEBRUARY, the track is now reaching an audience of more than 140 million at radio. The radio gameplan was executed by Management’s MIKE LIEBERMAN and DALE CONNONE’s IN2UNE MUSIC.
"I Want to extend a big thank you to everyone at radio who supported "Lean On" and got it to number one. As an independent release this is absolutely a dream come true,” said MAJOR LAZER's DIPLO.
“When MIKE (LIEBERMAN) brought us this record in APRIL, we knew we had a very special project. I’m extremely proud of the IN2UNE team and so grateful to radio for what we accomplished with a truly independent single,” CONNONE added.
