No surprise here that the newest Major Lazer track is the embodiment of perfection. There’s a lot going on here and all of it is loveworthy. The work that Major Lazer is just as hard as their live shows — 100% with nothing to hold back. I remember the first time I saw them at one of the HARD shows in New York City. As soon as I arrived at Terminal 5, my phone was stolen. My sadness was fleeting and totally forgotten as soon as I stepped into the masses. The show was unforgettable. Ladders and ladies with barely any clothes on, a lot of humping the ground, fans on stage, fans off stage, scary faces, exciting light shows…it’s always really impressive to me when a musical act can channel exactly the same energy they give out in their music, on stage during a live show. It’s a whole other level of creativity that I can definitely appreciate. It’s like taking a painting and transforming into a piece of poetry.
Have you guys noticed that February is just the worst month? I used to feel pretty indifferent towards February, but this year it has been nothing but a nagging pain. And I know it’s the year of the snake and everything, so maybe it’s time to just take February for what it is — a month for realizations in the harshest way. Hopefully this track will not only make you want to dance, but lift your spirits as it has done for me. I especially like playing it at the gym when I’m trying to channel any sort of anger or sadness into my workout. It’s a really fun song to run to, with the beat being so intense, demanding attention and fervor. Enjoy!
