Watch the Official Video For Mr Eazi, Nicki Minaj & Major Lazer's ‘Oh My Gawd’

The new dancehall-inspired track is sure to soundtrack your end of summer.

Nigerian singer-songwriter Mr Eazi has teamed up with production trio Major Lazer for their collective new single "Oh My Gawd." The single only gets stronger with features, with Nicki Minaj and fellow Nigerian artist K4mo also lending their voices.

Taking lyrical inspiration from Black Uhuru and Baby Charm and their legendary contributions to reggae and dancehall classic hits, "Oh My Gawd" acts as Mr Eazi's first single off of his highly anticipated EP Something Else. The song features production from Fred Again, Diplo and co-production courtesy of Alex Gibson, Toddla T and Siba.

London based director Alexx Adjei and choreographer Patience J released an official dance video for "Oh My Gawd" featuring some of the top dancehall and Afro dancers the UK has to offer.


Mr Eazi spoke of the record being fun to make, "It's crazy how it went from hearing a K4mo intro in the studio with Fred Again, to me jumping on it and then Diplo hopping in! And [Major Lazer's] Walshy Fire hitting me up to say it's a banger—next thing Nicki is on it! Been a journey really, like two years in the making, and I can't wait to perform it at my next festival!"

While K4MO refers to "Oh My Gawd" as a "contagious hit that will remain a classic for years to come."
