Who’s ready to go to Africa? After watching all of these music videos from Major Lazer and South African director Adriaan Louw, we’re looking at flights. The pair have teamed up on three so far, with a fourth for new single “Loyal” fresh out the oven today (Oct. 3).
“Loyal” bridges all of Major Lazer’s worlds with features from Jamaican singer Kranium and Nigeria’s Kizz Daniel. It’s a romantic, danceable bit of R&B groove with lots of international flavor. It’s smooth and easy, one you’ll want to keep going back to for more. The video is colorful and infectious, showcasing lots of African dancers in vibrant looks. It’s also a really great travel inspiration clip, full of beautiful beaches, running horses and warm city streets.
“Loyal” is the last paragraph of an unfolding love letter from Major Lazer to humanity’s birth continent. It started with a 30-minute Afrobeats mega-mix released in September, followed by music videos for previous singles featuring artists from around the continent. Major Lazer celebrated its African autumn with a tour, of which three dates remain; check them out below.
Watch the “Loyal” music video and get inspired:
