Hype for the collaboration with had been dished out in very small spoonfuls via Diplo’s Instagram and Snapchat as the project went through its production, but it’s safe to say that as awesome as those hints were, no one expected such an epic video.

If you were ever trying to explain the music or cultural style of Diplo, DJ Snake, and Jillionaire, this would be a perfect example.

Using the beautifully colorful and artistic culture of India as a backdrop for the video, it truly highlights the sense of royal sexiness that these artists have as the threads throughout their music. There is definitely something to be said about the swagger these guys are able to bring to the screen and translate into the music just as flawlessly.

MØ absolutely steals the show with her undeniable presence, incredible vocals, and fantastic choreography, fitting perfectly with the surroundings. There is no doubt that she was made to play a part in this unforgettable collaboration.

Diplo had a great deal to say about the project and its process.

India is special and its beauty absolutely humbled me. When we toured there as Major Lazer, it was mind blowing to see our fan-base and we wanted to incorporate the attitude and positive vibes into our video and just do something that embodies the essence of Major Lazer. Major Lazer has always been a culture mashup and to us, India feels like some kind of special creature with one foot in history and one firmly in the future. The experience is something we’ll never forget.
