Traditionally a Caribbean-influenced group, Major Lazer is currently head-over-heels for Africa. The trio released a 30-minute mega mix of new music sprinkled among track from a few of its favorite African artists. Some days later, Major Lazer shared an official music video for the full-length version of the mix’s opening track “Orkant/Balance Pon It” featuring South Africa’s Babes Wodumo. Now, itdoes the same with the mix closer.
“Tied Up” features Nigerian singer Mr. Eazi and London’s Raye. It’s got a laid back vibe and a rather dancehall-y rhythm. Again, it was directed by South African director Adriaan Louw, the third such collaboration. This one doesn’t feature the trio, but it does feature some great dancing and cool motorized vehicles.
Major Lazer will also celebrate its African love affair with a six-date tour across the continent. Watch the music video for “Tied Up” below.
