Mr Eazi and Major Lazer share audio and visuals for the dancehall-inspired single “Oh My Gawd” featuring Nicki Minaj and K4mo.
“Oh My Gawd”, 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. The track was produced by Fred Again and Diplo, with a co-production from Alex Gibson, Toddla T and Siba.
The official video, directed by London-based Alexx Adjei and choreographed by Patience J, features some of the UK’s top dancehall and Afro dancers commandeering a posh, old-money estate in the British countryside for a 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 [Major Lazer’s] Walshy Fire 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!”
