Major Lazer Links Up With Nicki Minaj & PARTYNEXTDOOR For The “Run Up” Video

The sounds of Major Lazer are back. Today Major Lazer returns with a brand new video, this time around with a brand new music video for their track “Run Up.” The track finds Major Lazer pairing up with Nicki Minaj and PARTYNEXTDOOR for something energetic. The track is brought to life in a fitting video that was directed by Paul, Luc, and Martin. The clip is a hilarious take on modern communication in which we find a party full of phone-obsessed guests who text and take selfies along the way.

PND And Nicki showcase their talents, while Nicki shows up in a FaceTime call while dancing on a rooftop. The directors spoke on the video stating “The idea was to laugh at ourselves and at the unconditional love we bear to our smartphones.” They added that “Humor and absurdity came naturally in our speech because our will was not to accuse someone or something but just exaggerate it to foster reflection.” Have a look at the visuals below and let us know what you think in the comments. Stay tuned, Major Lazer’s Music Is the Weapon is due later this year!
