Jillionaire has left Major Lazer.
The longtime member of the American dancehall trio, born Christopher Leacock, has departed the group in order to focus on solo projects.
Coming ahead of the release of Major Lazer's fourth and final album, 'Music is the Weapon', Jillionaire's departure doubles up as a "new era of lazer" that will see Texas native Eric Alberto-Lopez aka Ape Drums standing in as a replacement. Walshy Fire and founding member Diplo also remain.
Earlier this year, Major Lazer dropped the video for 'Watch Out For This'.
In March, LSD - the trio comprised of Diplo, Labrinth and Sia - dropped a track called 'No New Friends'.
