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:
