Crafted around an airy, melancholy vocal from Tory Lanez, Cashmere Cat and Major Lazer‘s production on “Miss You” is evocative in its elegant simplicity. This song covers all the bases of what we love most about an unexpected, fantastical Cashmere Cat track and a big-feels, hip-shaking dancehall vibe of a Major Lazer song, and Tory Lanez’s vocals are irresistibly sweet albeit adorably emo.
As Diplo told Zane Lowe when the song debuted on his Beats 1 show, “Cashmere had an idea for a song and it kind of fit the Major Lazer mold a little bit so I just helped him steer it,” he said. “We finished it together backstage one night at Red Rocks in Denver actually. It was after his set, before my set. It was funny because we actually worked on the drop for a year and everything sucked. And then we made the most easiest drop ever.”
