Major Lazer Partners Babes Wodumo on ‘Orkant/Balance Pon It’

Major Lazer continues to reign on the global music front, collaborating with some of the biggest names in Pop and Dancehall. His influence permeates the African continent especially via partnerships with Mr Eazi, Burnaboy among others. It is no wonder Ghana continues to embrace him as one of the most influential modern artists.

His latest song “Orkant/Balance Pon It” featuring South African singer Babes Wodumo seeks to entrench his status and court for him, massive Ghanaian appeal.

The song comes accompanied by a second visual collaboration between Major Lazer and South African director Adriaan Louw, this time shot in Durban, South Africa—watch here.

Major Lazer also recently debuted a brand new Afrobeats Mix, which blends music from across the continent and lends their global platform to trendsetting African artists and their longtime inspirations and collaborators, as well as teasing new music—listen here.

Furthermore, the band is set to tour Africa in September and October, with dates in South Africa, Malawi, Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda. While in Africa, Major Lazer will also work with VETPAW (Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife) to combat poaching in South Africa and beyond.

“All My Life” follows collaborations with Cashmere Cat, Tory Lanez and Rudimental and 2017’s critically acclaimed Know No Better EP.
