Major Lazer combined his EDM sound with Nigerian star Mr. Eazi‘s Afrobeat rhythm on Thursday (Sept. 10) for “Oh My Gawd,” a hip-shaking track featuring fellow Nigerian musician K4mo and Nicki Minaj.
The song serves as the first single from Mr Eazi’s upcoming EP ‘Something Else’, due in October.
According to, Mr Eazi, this particular song was really fun to make.
To celebrate the start of Carnival season and the new single, Major Lazer will be hosting an online Carnival livestream via Twitch on September 13. Hosted by Walshy Fire, the all-day event will feature DJ sets from Major Lazer and more than 20 artists from around the world.
“And 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!”- Mr.Eazi say’s in press statement.
‘Oh My Gawd’ comes with a dance video directed by Alex Adjei.
