Major Lazer strum warm weather heartstrings with new video for ‘Loyal’
Though the future of dance music dynasty, Major Lazer, may be tentative since the recent news of their imminent disbandment, the trio is still toiling away on the release radar. Their latest video for “Loyal,” sees the fierce faction join forces with Jamaican reggae/dancehall singer, Kranium, and Nigerian vocalist, Kizz Daniel. The afrobeat/dancehall production is especially timely, as Diplo observed, given the fact that Nigeria just celebrated their independence day earlier this week (October 1).
The video (shot by serial Major Lazer director, Adriaan Louw of South Africa) is set at both dusk and midday along the vibrant streets and rushing oceanic coast of Senegal. It follows both Daniel and Kranium, who are joined by a sundry of dancers in technicolor, modern African attire. A comment from Major Lazer’s YouTube account proclaims, “Senegal is the lion country where the youth are fearless.”
