Major Lazer & Mr Eazi Call on K4mo & Nicki Minaj for ‘Oh My Gawd’

Major Lazer combined his EDM sound with Nigerian star Mr. Eazi’s Afrobeat rhythm on Thursday (Sept. 10) for “Oh My Gawd,” a hip-shaking track featuring fellow Nigerian musician K4mo and Nicki Minaj.

“Oh my gawd, I’ve never seen a bottom like this / See the way she hula hoop? I’ma jump on like this,” Mr. Eazi begins the infectious song, accompanied by a dancehall-inspired choreography video. Minaj soon swoops in with her thumping verse, proclaiming, “Stranger, looking for some danger / Ride it like a bad gal, face of a angel / This one, yeah, I’m Major, UK out to Asia / Pull out in the Range, got him beepin’ like a pager.”

“This record was really fun to make,” Eazi said of the track in a press statement. “And 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 Walshy 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!”

To celebrate the start of Carnival season and the new single, Major Lazer will be hosting an online Carnival livestream via Twitch on September 13. Hosted by Walshy Fire, the all-day event will feature DJ sets from Major Lazer and more than 20 artists from around the world.
