Riff: Major Lazer – “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)” feat. Busy Signal, The Flexican & FS Green

Mar 1, 2013

Music the bombs, lyrics by the tons/I’m a hybrid, sent from above/We tell them

from Watch Our For This (Bumaye) lyrics by Major Lazer

Busy Signal‘s voice is more instrument than lyrical vessel on this dancehall fusion joint. He’s a rhythmic accessory, a bombastic voice whose blistering exuberance overshadows his lyrical content. Sadly, the ingredients are just too vague to establish any sort of meaningful flavors; [LISTEN].
