Making a name for themselves for their ability to crossover cultural influences into the mainstream with the end result being discography filled with countless radio hits, Major Lazer is now using their global platform to give African artists the spotlight coming in the form of their new “Afrobeats” mix.
This release also includes the debut of their newest single “All My Life” featuring Nigerian vocalist Burna Boy.
“Over the past few years, we’ve had the chance to tour extensively and work with artists across Africa. These music scenes continue to inspire the music we make and sets we play. We wanted to bridge our music as Major Lazer with all these new sounds and genres coming out of Africa. From Babes Wodumo the Queen of Gqom to our brother Mr. Eazi, who is taking over the globe with each release, to new voices Kizz Daniel and legends like Burna Boy, two of our favorite songwriters coming out of Nigeria,” Diplo explains.
“These artists along with Raye, Taranchyla and Kranium make up the new music we’ll be releasing over the next month to coincide with our tour in Africa at the end of September. Major Lazer has been fairly quiet in 2018 on the touring and music front, but this is the beginning of what will come next for us. I’m excited to share these four songs with you and the videos that our director made are some of the best we have ever put out.”
