“The idea was to laugh at ourselves and at the unconditional love we bear to our smartphones,” directors Paul, Luc and Martin said of the music video in a statement. “Humor and absurdity came naturally in our speech because our will was not to accuse someone or something but just exaggerate it to foster reflection.”

Major Lazer – Run Up (feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR & Nicki Minaj)
Ed Sheeran has released two brand-new remixes for his record-breaking track “Shape Of You,” and you can listen to them right here!
The 26-year-old singer – who recently went barefoot after his girlfriend’s heels broke – announced earlier this week that he would be debuting something special during his recent 2017 Brit Awards performance.
Ed totally delivered on stage by treating fans to a remix of the song he put together with artist Stormzy.
“I’ve got two things dropping on Friday that are pretty interesting,” he shared in a BBC Radio 1 interview before the show. “One that gets debuted at the Brits, which I think people will go a bit nuts for. It’s something that I think nobody is expecting. I think it’ll be decent.”

The upbeat track follows the group’s – comprised of Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire – smash hit “Cold Water” with Justin Biber.
“Partynextdoor is a good friend of ours,” Diplo said in a statement. “We’re always working in LA when he is around and we’ve cut a lot of music and we really believe in what he does and his style. He came up with a great song. I’ve always wanted to work with Nicki as well, she’s on our short list. Of course this record… she just vibed with it, she loved the feeling and timing was right so we got her on it. So hopefully we can do a lot more with her next time, we’ve traded some music back and forth so hopefully we got some of that done.”
“Major Lazer is all about making the world smaller by making the party bigger,” added Walshy. “This felt like the perfect song to start off 2017.”
Major Lazer just dropped the music video for their “Light It Up (Remix)” featuring Nyla and Fuse ODG and you can watch right here!
The track is the latest single off the production trio’s – Diplo, Switch, and Jillionaire – album Peace Is the Mission, which is available now.
“The whole sentiment of this Major Lazer track is about overcoming negativity and sadness, coming together, and rising up in dance to ‘Light It Up’,” director Sam Pilling expressed about the clip. “Because Fuse‘s family is from Ghana we thought it would bring a really interesting aesthetic to film the video there. Delving deeper into Ghanaian culture, we found that their traditional funeral ceremonies perfectly exemplify this sense of coming together to rise up against sadness. The whole community joins together, first in mourning the death, then in celebrating the life that was lived. We worked closely with a Ghanaian family and village, meeting the elders and receiving their blessing to film a real funeral ceremony. I found a poem ‘Kae’ [Remember] written in a traditional Ghanaian language—Twe—which felt like the perfect companion to the video as it is about reflecting on sadness but rising up and looking to the future and to new life.”
