Major Lazer drop video for “Orkant/Balance Pon It”

Check out the ‘gqom’ bomb, featuring South African artist Babes Wodumo.

Dance music trio Major Lazer have teamed up with South African singer Babes Wodumo to release “Orkant/Balance Pon It.”

Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire have combined tom-heavy rhythms and broken beats with ’90s synth pads and enthusiastic singing from the 24-year-old songstress. Wodumo, whose song “Redemption” recently featured on Black Panther: The Album, specializes in gqom music, a style of South African house that emerged from the township of Durban, where the video was filmed.

The clip is a vibrant, scenic trip through Durban, focusing on its fun-loving, dance-ready population, from schoolchildren to partygoers. Of course, Wodumo shows off her moves as well. Check it out here:
