Mr Eazi and Major Lazer have shared audio and visuals for the dancehall-inspired single ‘Oh My Gawd’ featuring Nicki Minaj and K4mo.
The track is co-produced by songwriter, DJ, Label Owner and Radio 1 broadcaster Toddla T and Fred Again (Burna Boy/Ed Sheeran/Stormzy /Stefflon Don), who earlier this year made history to become the youngest recipient of the Brits Producer Of The Year Award. The track launched on BBC Radio 1Xtra as a Target Embargo.
The single, which takes lyrical inspiration from reggae/dancehall classics by Black Uhuru and Baby Cham, is the first single from Mr Eazi’s Something Else EP coming in October.
Listen to ‘Oh My Gawd’ (feat. Nicki Minaj & K4mo)’ by Mr Eazi & Major Lazer on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
The video, directed by London-based Alexx Adjei and choreographed by Patience J, features some of the UK’s top dancehall and afrobeats dancers taking over an old-money mansion in the British countryside for a posh raucous bashment party complete with the latest moves from Kingston and Lagos.
“This record was really fun to make,” Mr Eazi says. “It’s crazy how it went from hearing a K4mo intro in the studio with Fred Again, to me jumping on it and then Diplo hopping in! And Walshy hitting me up to say it’s a banger—next thing Nicki is on it! Been a journey really, like two years in the making and I can’t wait to perform it at my next festival!”
Outside of his own career, he has reached greater heights this year with his label services company emPawa Africa and has been at the helm of enabling the next generation of African artists with the tools, knowledge, network and investment to enable them to become independent music entrepreneurs.
