“Watch Out” Now: Major Lazer x Busy Signal, “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Major Lazer Bumaye Video

Of the collaborations promised on Major Lazer‘s upcoming Free the Universe LP, “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)” featuring Busy Signal is one of those that most piqued our interest. Not only has Busy been on a quality-filled tear since returning home to Jamaica from a US prison stay last year (though surely the song’s vocals were recorded before that), but the song promised to match Busy’s dancehall style with some Latin flavor, an arena where he has excelled in the past. Add in the early ’90s JA period-piece video (directed by dancehall director Jay Will) that Major Lazer shot on a recent visit to Kingston (see above photo), and color us intrigued.

Chronixx—our No. 1 Artist to Watch for 2013—is definitely starting the year out with a bang. Fresh off his recent sitdown with our Erin MacLeod, the singer has announced an appearance at next week’s Rebel Salute concert and an upcoming collaboration with Sizzla. He was also spotted this week on the set for Major Lazer’s 90s-dancehall-period-piece video for “Bumaye” featuring Busy Signal. And now he’s just dropped his first video of the year, for one of his most accessible tunes to date in “The Mini Song.”

Check It Deeply: Will 2013 Be Busy Signal’s Year?

Words by Jesse Serwer—

The biggest complaint we’ve heard about dancehall in recent years is that there’s no substance to back up all of the hype. Finally, the hype in dancehall seems to be coalescing around some real substance: the talents of Busy Signal. Busy has been our consensus choice for Jamaica’s most consistent and talented deejay essentially since he first bruk out in 2005 but, unlike Vybz Kartel, Mavado and even Popcaan and Tommy Lee, he’s never had that moment that truly belonged to him alone. As we start off 2013, it’s starting to look like that moment might be now, though. Though it’s a shame what it took to put this ascension in motion, we’re glad to see it finally happening.
