Major Lazer have released their video for “Night Riders” off the 2015 album Peace is the Mission. The song features Pusha T, Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, and Mad Cobra.
The slick video, full of deep blues and glowing neon lights, focuses on an underground female MMA fighter. When she’s done trouncing other ladies, she heads to her job as a stripper. But she doesn’t play nice with her customers. After bashing a beer bottle over one guy’s head (supposedly because someone hired her to), she hops in an auto rickshaw and takes to the sultry, colorful streets. Thanks to her mode of transportation, it looks as though the video was filmed in Thailand.
Even though the song boasts several big name features, only Scott appears in the video. In between shots of the female lead going about her night, he hangs out by another tricked out vehicle. “All I need is a gas and the lighter,” he sings on the chorus, bringing that line to life with two tire strips on fire and palming a lighter throughout his appearance.
