Trinidadian artist Jillionaire, one third of Diplo's dance supergroup Major Lazer, has pulled production duties alongside New York-based producer Richie Beretta, on soca star Bunji Garlin's new track, "Television."

The tune is a swelling, braggadocio-filled hybrid of hip-hop, soca, and electro, with just the right amount of the pew-pew synths and rattling bass that Major Lazer has become known for.

As a solo artist, Garlin has had plenty of success, but his new crossover is sure to garner attention from soca and EDM fans alike. In a recent Billboard interview, the 37-year-old artist said, "As a soca artist, doing these kinds of things isn't considered normal—but I'm ready to have some fun with it."

"Television" is out now via Jillionaire's own Feel Up Records.
