Major Lazer, “Good Enough feat. Collie Buddz and Lindie Ortega”

If you don’t know Major Lazer at all, you should start from page one of Wampoholic and catch up. Here’s a track from Lazers Never Die, their newly released EP.

While I will never profess to knowing anything about dub or reggae, I haven’t found a song as sad as this in the genre. Then again, there’s a lot more pop in here than one would expect. Ripping the guitar lick from Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” almost verbatim and throwing in a non-accented vocalist makes this pretty damn accessible.

we try baby but we’re going south/ i try baby but you’re full of doubt/ so tell me what am i to do right now/ light it up light it up and hope it don’t burn out/
