Major Lazer release free-spirited music video for ‘Tied Up’ featuring Mr. Eazi and Raye
Major Lazer have released the music video for their dance casual new track, “Tied Up” featuring English singer Raye and Nigerian vocalist Mr. Eazi. With an acoustic flare amidst confident drums, the song passes through a grounded bassline into a harmony between Raye and Mr. Eazi’s complimentary voices, eventually falling into swinging vocal chops that glide and groove along dancehall rhythms. Directed by South African director Adriaan Louw, the video was shot in Ghana, featuring the star vocalists against a backdrop of city streets and overcast skies.
This fall, expect to see Major Lazer team up with more African artists, releasing their African-inspired EP at a later date. Their six-date African tour is set to start September 29th in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Diplo recently stated 2019 will bring the last Major Lazer album. He mentioned the 10 years he’s been with the group, as well as a final culmination of international sounds rounding off their next spree of releases. The Mad Decent label boss mentioned focusing on his other projects, LSD and Silk City.
