Monday Music: Major Lazer “Bubble Butts”

3 June 2013
That’s the only word that accurately describes Major Lazer’s newest song “Bubble Butt.”

The video begins with a quick mockery aimed at a trio of skinny-minnies wearing the god-awful-you-will-never-see-called-out-on-OceanViolet #Seapunk trend.  The trio is interrupted taking Instagram selfies by a Sci-Fi Superwoman heroine who has a backside to rival the likes of the Kardashian’s, Nicki Minaj and Charles Barkley simultaneously.

The video is directed by Eric Wareheim, one-half of the Adult Swim comedic duo Tim + Eric. Which totally makes sense.  There’s so much visual stimuli going on in this video, I was really hoping for a guest appearance by the gentlewoman herself, Big Freedia. Alas, I’ll have to live with guest vocals from 2 Chainz, Bruno Mars, Tyga, and Mystic. Bruno Mars?  Wait, what. OK.

The video below comes with two stern warnings:  1) it’s slightly NSFW and 2) This will be on repeat for the rest of the summer.

Now Turn Around, Stick it Out, Show the World You Gotta….



If you find yourself bopping your bobble head to this jam, NYMAG asked Major Lazer ‘s leader Diplo to program the ultimate summer-barbecue soundtrack.  Here’s all 98 tracks including a few former OceanViolet Music Monday favorites: Aluna George, Solange + James Blake to name a few…

Bubble Butts is on Free The Universe + is out now via Mexican Summer/Mad Decent. Twerk it!
