Major Lazer 'Too Original' Music Video: Diplo Chops Fish Heads, Kids Dance
Major Lazer have unveiled the music video for their track "Too Original" featuring Elliphant and Jovi Rockwell taken from the group's June album Peace Is The Mission. "Too Original" was one of the first songs to be unveiled in the promo for the album after the massive success the group had with "Lean On" that still remains a popular radio and online hit. The video is as wacky as you might expect from Diplo, Walshy Fire and Jillionaire.
"Too Original" is more in line with the dancehall roots that the group looks to draw influence from.
The visuals take you into a restaurant with a rowdy clientele downing bottles of vodka and tequila like water and a full band with a tuba jamming out to the sounds of "Too Original." Diplo, Washy Fire and Jillionaire man the unkempt kitchen as the "Where Are Ü Now" producer chops off the head of a fish with meat, vegetables and various condiments strewn everywhere. They even start dancing on the cutting boards.
Starting in two weeks, Major Lazer will kick off their brand new radio show on Beats 1 titled Lazer Sound, which will be another platform to push out their music.
They will get back on the road together for a busy European tour this October for dates in Germany, Denmark, the UK and France. Check out all of the details here.
Even with their incredibly busy summer, Major Lazer have more music in the works and a new album on the way. The group confirmed in a previous interview that their next album would be titled Music Is The Weapon, staying on brand with the mission and peace-oriented album titles. In an interview with Billboard, Diplo shared that the group was working with artists like Travi$ Scott, The Weeknd, Sia and others for their new material.
