Major Lazer’s new single, “Sua Cara”, has a music video and it’s a sizzling desert affair with the track’s guest stars: Brazillian rising star Anitta and drag superstar Pabllo Vittar.
Major Lazer dropped the video for the Portuguese-language pop track on Sunday afternoon (July 30) and it’s a simple, but effective clip with the stars parading around the sandy landscape with bike riders and backup dancers. Even though it doesn’t sound entirely inventive, one watch of the video will change your mind. As per Monday morning, the video had already nabbed 14 million views. “Sua Cara” is featured on the dance collective’s Know No Better EP.
In his recent interview, Diplo explained why releasing an album isn’t entirely a priority for the trio anymore. “I just felt like if we keep putting out singles and people keep playing them, we’ll just kind of rack it up and put together a project with a bunch of songs on it, and continue with those and have those songs featured”, he explained. “But it’s not that important to us anymore. I think just getting singles out. It’s so much easier to promote singles the way that people listen to our music, so we just want to work with that formula because it works.”
