Major Lazer has debuted the video for their new summer single “Make It Hot” featuring Brazilian superstar Anitta. The video is in partnership with BACARDI, with the famous rum brand making several appearances throughout the feature. The song unites Spanish vocals from Anitta with the group’s dancehall-inspired signature sound, with the viewer participating in the party from the video’s onset.
Anitta speaks about the video and working with Major Lazer, noting,
“It’s amazing when you work in synergy with someone who completes you artistically, Having the opportunity to write/compose another song with Major Lazer was really special. We have developed this energy that is similar to being around family and close friends when we work together. It’s good to be able to bounce ideas off each other and that’s something that happens naturally now. I think it’s difficult for anyone to listen to this song and remain still.”
Anitta steals the show, dancing through the feature with the members of Major Lazer making cameos throughout. The video is total sensory overload, making the visuals as colorful as the sonic elements of the track, and ultimately serves as a perfect compliment to the release.
