Watch Major Lazer's New Video For 'Tied Up' Featuring Mr Eazi & Raye

Major Lazer take things to Ghana for this new clip.

Major Lazer have been sharing some great collaborations with the likes of Burna Boy for "All My Life" and Babes Wodumo in "Orkant/Balance Pon It."

A third one has now dropped in the form of "Tied Up," which features Mr Eazi and London singe Raye. It comes accompanied by a striking new music video that focuses on the buzzing youth of Accra, Ghana.


The new video was directed by Adriaan Louw, the same South African director who's helmed the clips for their past two singles with Burna and Babes Wodumo. It was also produced by OkayAfrica alum Allison Swank of The Swank Group.

"Over the past few years we've had the chance to tour extensively and work with artists across Africa," mentions Diplo. "These music scenes continue to inspire the music we make and sets we play. We wanted to bridge our music as Major Lazer with all these new sounds and genres coming out of Africa."

Mr Eazi has been busy as usual these days as he also just dropped a new video for "Mamee" alongside Efya.

Major Lazer will be playing shows across South Africa, Malawi, Kenya and Uganda in September & October. Check out their tour dates underneath.
