Major Lazer Go Mile High for ‘Jet Blue Jet’ Video
'Free the Universe' clip is big on weed smoke, trippy visuals, tattooed ladies
Major Lazer’s album-length dancehall-EDM mashup Free the Universe lets slip another visual today, this time for the clattering club-crusher “Jet Blue Jet.” Like most of Diplo’s collaborations under this guise, the track wrangles the talents of a number of collaborators: Kingston chanter Leftside, Miami booty-bassists GTA, and Jamaican DJs Raz and Biggy. Only the first name on that list appears in the Grizz Lee-directed video, however.
Leftside’s wicked grin shows up between gratuitous shots of nearly nude women (unless you count the tattoos) smoking gratuitous amounts of presumably marijuana-packed cigars. Oh, and there’s former Kreayshawn homie Lil Debbie rocking a perm and sitting on what kinda sorta looks to be an Eames interpretation of an airport lavatory. Perhaps that’s just the “Jet Blue Jet” name influencing our train of thought.
