Major Lazer featuring J Balvin and El Alfa, "Que Calor"

Major Lazer is the sound system with ties all over the world, and today, the group's Diplo and Ape Drums party with their friends Colombian star J Balvin and Dominican artist El Alfa.

"Que Calor" is a steamy banger for peak club hours with a body-banging beat that samples the instantly-recognizable cumbia classic "Curara," by Toto La Momposina. It's side-winding flutes are backed by a boasty dembow rhythm, and the accompanying video features high-energy moves from favorite Lazer Gyal dancers Sara Bivens and Helen Gedlu.

J Balvin, El Afla and Major Lazer's Diplo and Ape Drums came through the set to add vibrant performance clips and backup dance moves. The clip was directed by Colin Tilley, who worked on Kendrick Lamar's "Alright" and Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda," among others. 

"Que Calor" follows "Make It Hot" with Anitta, making it the second confirmed single from the group's forthcoming fourth album.
