I’m going to go ahead and warn you that this video has a lot of ass clapping and booty gyrating. But we wouldn’t have it any other way though, right?
Major Lazer quickly became one of my favorite “groups” due to the guiding hand of Diplo. Now that he’s become a household name thanks to his high profile productions (Usher’s “Climax) and other prominent features, Major Lazer’s latest album has gone all out to up the ante. I went to the release party here in Los Angeles, and let me tell you, you haven’t lived until you’ve seen A-Trak and Diplo doing karaoke live with Skrillex over in the corner egging them on.
“Bubble Butt”, the first single, featuring Bruno Mars’ repeated rhythmic chanting of the song title, quickly became a favorite. So I of course was waiting for the visual to blow me away. And did it ever, LOL.
In an age where twerking by white women with planar backsides has become a meme (see Miley Cyrus‘ twerk video on YouTube), leave it up to Mad Decent to take it too many steps further, right? Throw in the Amazonian as(s)tronomically astounding woman who fuels the implantation of fake asses (and also whose head is the visual representation of Bruno’s vocal), and this video gets crazy fast. But I love it.
Twerkers unite. Do some hash and watch this video and be amazed.
