Major Lazer Release Afrosmash Remix of “Run Up” With Insane New VideoMay 12, 2017
Now this is waaaaay better.
I’ll never listen to the original again.
Major Lazer just premiered their ‘Afrosmash’ remix of their own single “Run Up” – featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj – with an epic dance video filmed in Nigeria.
The remix still involves Nicki and PND, however new verses by Yung L, Skales and Chopstix steal the show completely with their incomparable energy.
“We were inspired by afro pop and club music when we made “Run Up.” After our tour in Africa we cut a new version in Lagos,” Diplo says. “The crew made a crazy video within a few days… Nigerian style.”
The video is one massive celebration of African culture as Yung L, Skales and Chopstix throw a dance party we could only dream of being part of.
The original “Run Up” was a cute girl but this remix is just a total killer. A staple for the summer playlists!
