Major Lazer – “Too Original” (Video)

blame it on Meka September 24, 2015

Wow, where has Jovi Rockwell been? It has, quite literally, been five years since I’ve heard any solo music from her. She’s since traded in the throwback boom-bap for something far more electronic, joining Diplo, his Major Lazer misfits and Elliphant on a track from the Lazer’s recently-released album Peace is the Mission.

The whole thing seems to take place in a small cantina, where apparently listening to Major Lazer music while drinking swill will result in what the “youth” refer to as “turning up.” Meanwhile, the Abe Simpson in me is telling those kids to turn down their music because Matlock is on. I feel like Danny Glover… the Lethal Weapon version, not of the Young Thug variety.
