Yesterday Major Lazer, the EDM supergroup including Dip Lo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire released a new video to their song “Night Riders” which includes artists Travi$ Scott, 2 Chainz, Pusha T, & Mad Cobra. The video includes girls dancing and boxing, neon lights, fast cars, and not to mention Travi$ Scott. Travi$ Scott is shown as the main character of the video as he smokes his cigarette in the night air on what seems to be a rooftop in a big city. So bad ass. The rest of the video includes promiscuous dancers in bright and flashy bikinis. Its interesting to watch what seems to be a culture clash come out so smoothly.
The hook is an immediate call to the theme of the video which Travi$ Scott embellishes with his unique sound by stating, “You need to know that I’m a rider, Tonight were gonna set the streets on fire, all i need is the gas and the lighter, and were gonna have one hell of time.”
Night Riders was originally released a little over a year ago in anticipation of their album Peace is the Mission. Now their song’s new visual expresses the view they want their audience to portray and reach even further into other genre’s such as Rap and Hip-Hop.
Other songs that were released around the same time include “Wave”, “Thunder & Lightning”, “Blaze up the Fire”, and “Boom” and also have a similar vibe to “Night Rider”.
We are all looking forward to the trio releasing more music and albums in the future, but in the mean time check out the new video for yourself. You will be more than entertained!
