TRACK LIFE: Major Lazer – “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)”
Welcome to Track Life, a daily column in which Jacob Knight shares what he thinks to be the best in music, both new and old.
Sometimes you don’t even need a reason to love a song. Sometimes, you just want to get as hype as possible and certain tracks allow for that to happen near instantaneously.
Enter Major Lazer.
“Watch Out For This” is one of those tracks; from Diplo and Switch’s two step beat to Busy Signal’s vocal drop, the song is a straight up banger. Major Lazer have always made party-starting music, nothing that you would throw on following a hard day at work. Instead, it’s dance hall reggae tailor made for five drinks in, ready to hit the dance floor with yourself or whoever the fuck else wants to follow. Nothing deep, just the celebration of weed, booze and ladies and gentlemen who want to get down with one another.
This shit doesn’t always have to be rocket science, you know?
