Busy Signal Bumaye Video Shoot

Major Lazer flew down to Kingston to film a 90s-style street dance video, complete with Busy Signal on mic, Walshy Fire on the ones and twos, and Diplo and Jillionaire a pose-off with some bashment girls, for their latest banger ‘‘Watch Out for This (Bumaye).’’ Some highlights from the behind-the-scenes footage they’ve leaked in advance of the Jay Will-directed video’s release next week: Walshy Fire in his oversized Shabba outfit, Busy Signal’s ghetto-gold sequin shirt, and Diplo nervously getting a local haircut: “You ever cut white dude blonde hair before?”

Snoop Lion

Like it or not, Snoop Lion’s Reincarnated is the most talked about reggae project since… yeah, even we are struggling to remember the last time a new reggae LP elicited this level of intrigue from the world at large. Other non-Jamaican acts with big names have made surprising left turns into reggae before but none has generated the interest and backlash as the former Snoop Dogg has with his new identity.

Regatta de Lazer: Major Lazer Caribbean Tour Video + “Jessica” Audio

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Major Lazer

In January, Major Lazer set sail—that’s not flowery language, they literally set sail—on a five-stop Caribbean tour, traveling from Jamaica to Tortola to St. Maarten to St. Croix to Puerto Rico aboard a boat called the Molly Roger. Naturally, they documented the highlights (plus Diplo ironing and a cameo from Pootie Tang) in a video, which has been set to “Jah No Partial,” the Johnny Osbourne-featuring second single from their upcoming and once-again postponed sophomore album, Free the Universe.
