On Sept. 10, Major Lazer debuted a new track titled, “Oh My Gawd” featuring Nicki Minaj, Mr Eazi, and K4mo which is currently available now at the following link.
“Oh My Gawd” follows their recent hit tracks, “Lay Your Head On Me” featuring Marcus Mumford of Mumford and Sons, which reached number one on radio and Dance charts, and “Que Calor” featuring J Balvin and El Alfa, which was performed alongside Jennifer Lopez at the Super Bowl and has amassed over 500 million streams.
“This record was really fun to make, 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
