Major Lazer’s New Video For ‘Powerful’ Involves Superpowers And Flying Pizza

Proving love really can conquer all, including the need to use vowels, Major Lazer released a video for the single “Powerful” off the group’s Peace Is the Mission album on Friday. Diplo made the announcement on Instagram by sharing a clip of the video with the hashtag #PWRFL.


The track stars Beats1 Radio host Ellie Goulding and Jamaican reggae singer Tarrus Riley, who also helped write the song. The video features Goulding and Riley possessing X-Men-like super powers, turning a neighborhood diner upside down with their wild “energy,” all in the name of L-O-V-E.

The video was directed by James Slater who has also directed videos for White Lies, The Go! Team and Kaiser Chiefs.

Shout out to the power to move pizza. Next time snag me a slice.
