With 2009’s Guns Don’t Kill People . . . Lazers Do, an American and a Brit (Diplo and Switch) renamed themselves Major Lazer and set out to create a dancehall album from another planet, recruiting genre superstars like Vybz Kartel, Ricky Blaze, and Mr. Vegas to help with vocals. The result can still be heard not only in dancehalls but also on the Hot 100, where Beyoncé brought her “Run the World (Girls),” a track based around a sample from the duo’s “Pon de Floor.” Tonight, Diplo and Switch’s replacement, Jillionaire, come to Terminal 5 as they put the finishing touches on their forthcoming Major Lazer Frees the Universe. With Pictureplane and Brenmar.
