Another of their songs that has a leading Nigerian music act on it, fans will defintely be looking forward to hearing them perform this new jam!

Major Lazer & MOTi feat. Ty Dolla $ign, Wizkid, Kranium – “Boom”
It’s a Major Concert and it is safe to say that fans will be left a little disappointed if there is no “Boom”. The song is a mega collab that pumps up listeners with a clubby beat, Caribbean topline and vocal clips that are stretched and pitched in all directions. The fact that they are in Nigeria, Boom will only be even more appropriate considering it has Nigerian sensational singer, Wizkid on it!

Major Lazer feat. Ariana Grande – “All My Love”

This song is straight from the beloved movie “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1” and not only does it involve major hip-swinging energy, the sound which is like a conglomerate of animals chanting from all parts of the jungle gives it a party lover feel.

Major Lazer feat. Ellie Goulding – “Powerful”

Undoubtedly one of Major Lazer’s best collaborations till date with over 75 million views on YouTube and a peak position of number five on Billboard’s Dance Charts, what better way to exert their power than with to match it with a dance music power ballad while giving fans a chance to let their voice crack with passion as they sing along.

Major Lazer – “Pon De Floor”
A classic hit song that came with its own dance moves, performing this song gives Nigerians a break from the Shaku Shaku to switch to the Kingston dance. This song is so good that even Beyonce turned it into “Run The World (Girls).”

Major Lazer feat. Nyla, Fuse ODG – “Light It Up”
Right off their Peace Is The Mission, they teamed up with Nyla, and Ghanaian-English hip hop recording artiste, Fuse ODG to deliver this pop smash. With Fuse ODG as a collaborator on this one, even Nigeria’s neighbor of Ghana can feel like a part of the party.

Major Lazer feat. Justin Bieber – “Cold Water”
Let’s admit it, Justin Bieber is one of the most successful music acts out there and The Biebs can sure feel like he is here in Nigeria should Major Lazer decide to perform the hit “Cold Water”. What makes this song even more appropriate is the fact that Major Laxer fused elements from all over the world to create an anthem fit for any parade, silent car ride, or packed club.

Major Lazer and DJ Snake feat. MØ – “Lean On”
Can there be a Major Lazer concert without “Lean On”? We seriously doubt this because this is a J-A-M, with capital letters. This is the kind of song you go around singing for the rest of the day if someone even so much as whispers the words.

As we eagerly await the concert, we can only hope some of our favourite picks will be performed. What song from Major Lazer are you looking forward to having them perform?
