Busy Signal featured on new collab with Major Lazer

In 2013, dancehall heart throb 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 Again, DJ, is featured on Major Lazer's new star-studded EP, 'Know No Better' that features Travis Scott, Quavo, Sean Paul, Jidenna and others.

In reviewing the EP, Billboard magazine said, “'Jump' is particularly fun, featuring a high-energy Dutch house drop and Jamaica's Busy Signal."

Busy Signal has been having a great 2017. After being without a United States visa for some time, he secured his travel documents in January and is confirmed to make his debut performance on U.S., soil at New York's Groovin In The Park on Sunday, June 25 at Roy Wilkins Park.

His popularity extends beyond the U.S., and Europe. In parts of Africa, he is revered as a music icon. Last year he completed a successful tour of southern Africa, notably Zimbabwe. He was left speechless when he heard a radio commercial promoting the show say, 'You should not die before you see Busy Signal.'

"These things touch me deeply," he reflected.
