Busy Signal on new Major Lazer project
In 2013, dancehall artiste Busy Signal scored a major EDM collaboration with Major Lazer titled Watch Out For This (Bumaye), featuring Flexion.
The song, which appeared on Major Lazer's second album Free the Universe, was a hit single in several European countries and was selected as the soundtrack to Pepsi's Lionel Messi ad.
Fast-forward to 2017 and the Nah Go A Jail deejay is featured on Major Lazer's new star-studded EP Know No Better that features artistes such as Travis Scott, Quavo, Sean Paul, Jidenna, and others.
In reviewing the EP, Billboard magazine said the single Jump "is particularly fun, featuring a high-energy Dutch house drop and Jamaica's Busy Signal".
Busy has been having a great 2017. After being without a US visa for some time, he secured his travel documents in January and is confirmed to make his debut performance on US soil at New York's Groovin In The Park on Sunday, June 25, at Roy Wilkins Park.
Busy's popularity extends beyond the US and Europe. He is also extensively followed in Africa. Last year he completed a successful tour of Southern Africa, notably Zimbabwe.
