Pharrell x Major Lazer's Fresh New Video For "Aerosol Can"
Pharrell and Major Lazer got Tyler, The Creator‘s stamp of approval (via twitter) when they dropped the single “Aerosol Can” off of Major Lazer’s EP Apocalypse Soon released earlier this year . The dub-electro trio (Diplo, Walshy Fire, Jillionaire) have treated their collaboration to a video directed by long-time Mad Decent creative contributor Kyle DePinna. The track, like the video, is minimalistic but packs a big punch. The percussive dancehall beat coupled with a dope patois vocal sample allow Pharrell’s rhymes to come right at you. Neither Major Lazer nor Skateboard P make an appearance in the video – instead, emphasizing Pharrell’s words is the vibrantly tattooed veteran graffiti artist Mike Giant, who adds contrast to the white walls. In the time lapsed video, Giant writes out the lyrics as they come alive through trippy animation, by the end of the video he’s sitting on a big couch, cool as ever, observing the final product. The EP, which followed Major Lazer’s 2013 Free The Universe LP and the Lazer Strikes Back remix series also features RDX, Moska, Sean Paul, Machel Montano and Mr. Fox.
