The song was released on July 22, , intended to be the lead single of their fourth studio album, Lazerism then titled Music is the Weapon , but later confirmed as the lead single from their first greatest hits album Major Lazer Essentials. The day before Diplo arrived in New York City in May , he was "more than a little surprised" when Justin Bieber sent a message on Twitter about the track, "Cold Water", asking when it would be coming out. According to Diplo, the song wasn't really done, when Bieber already expressed his excitement. Twitter is the only reason I know he's excited about the song. I don't have his number, so he Twitters at me," Diplo added. At the time, he did not give a specific release date, only mentioning it would be released "in a couple of weeks" and that it would premiere through Beats 1. The song initially started a project, which eventually built to Major Lazer's fourth studio album's January release. We don't need to have some guy tell us, 'Oh, this is what the market research says. I see it. I had been trying to link with Benny Blanco and Ed Sheeran for years to find the right song we could all work on together and the moment I heard this one, I knew that it was the one.

Guys, we're officially in the prime of summertime and, as such, it's super important that we all stay cool and hydrated at all times. Musically speaking, summer jams have a tendency to be absolute scorchers which do nothing for keeping our temperatures low when the heat is blasting outside. The song, which also features the distinctive songwriting skills of Ed Sheeran is a blissed out ode to that special someone that you never want to let go off, even when they're stuck in troubled waters. Featuring lyrics full of romantic affirmations, poetic gestures, and plenty of water metaphors, I couldn't help but notice one probably coincidental but startling thing about them — the lyrics to "Cold Water" are giving so many Titanic vibes that it's unreal. Perhaps Major Lazer's Diplo still feels sore about how Rose failed to save her beloved Jack in the cold water of the North Atlantic Ocean, or maybe Sheeran and Bieber have spent countless nights hanging out together and crying into vats of ice cream whilst re-watching Titanic on Netflix. Either way, the song has some eerily specific Titanic vibes happening. Don't believe me? Watch the video for "Cold Water" below, and then check out these 11 lyrics from the song which totally prove my theory. When Jack and Rose first meet, he persuades her down from the front of the Titanic and saves her from a suicide attempt.
Cold Water - Justin Bieber & MØ Lyrics
Justin Bieber isn't going to let you go through hard times alone. Well, at least that's what the lyrics from Bieber's song "Cold Water" say. Released on July 22, the main artist of "Cold Water" is Major Lazer, comprised of Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire, but Bieber's voice is unmistakable as he sings about not letting a love drown in her sorrow. Yet, the main message of the song isn't actually about getting high and is much sweeter than that. You may have read the lyrics before you even heard them, thanks to Bieber direct messaging them on July 20 to Twitter followers who tweeted with the hashtag ColdWater2Days, but if you didn't get a DM from Bieber, the lyrics are now available through an official lyric video on Major Lazer's YouTube channel. The song is also available to download and listen to through pretty much every music platform imaginable. Despite myself, I can't help but dig Bieber's sound since his album Purpose and "Cold Water" is definitely in line with this new Bieber I love.
