Major Lazer dropped the music video for his single “Light It Up” which also features Nyla and Fuse ODG.
The catchy single appeared on Major Lazer’s latest album “Peace is the Mission.” The video was shot in Ghana and directed by Sam Pilling.
“Because Fuse’s family is from Ghana we thought it would bring a really interesting aesthetic to film the video there,” Sam Pilling said in a press release. “Delving deeper into Ghanaian culture, we found that their traditional funeral ceremonies perfectly exemplify this sense of coming together to rise up against sadness.”
Major Lazer creator Diplo won two Grammys at the 2016 Grammy Awards for Best Dance Recording with Skrillex and Justin Bieber and also Best Dance/Electronic Album.
Diplo is also gearing up for a big performance in Tribuna José Martí at the U.S. Embassy in Havana, Cuba, making him the first major U.S. artist to perform in the communist country since President Obama restored diplomatic ties with Cuba.
