Major Lazer is on fire with this future glitchy dance hall pop thing, following up the stunning “All My Love” collaboration with Ariana Grande with another undeniable smash, recruiting hot young stars DJ Snake and MØ for the relentlessly catch “Lean On.”

I’ve mentioned this before but I follow A LOT of Black Twitter accounts to find fresh blog material. They’re usually hilarious so it’s a labor of love. But a weird thing has been happening lately with Black Twitter, namely a lot of their stuff is going mainstream and finding its way to sites like ours, then to ones who’d be horrified if they actually followed half these accounts, and immediately gets driven into the ground within seconds. So it’s my job to inform you about it before you see it everywhere else. And with this Little Einstein remix, I’ve never been more ready for something to be viral. This song should be on top of the Billboard charts right now:
White Twitter’s worried about the colors of a dress and Black Twitter’s dropping fire mixtapes made from kids songs. The song is even making its way into real life and coincidentally making more viral Vines as a result; for example, this Vine of a big girl who should definitely not be flipping in a cheerleading competition:
So just consider this a heads up, a friendly advance notice so you see it on Barstool first before you take the “Which Little Einstein Remix Vine Are You?” quiz on Buzzfeed in a month in their around the clock coverage designed to suck all the joy out of life in the name of pageviews.
PS This is how I imagine Black Twitter would respond to finding out a chill bro like me is in their midst gobbling up all their jokes, instant approval and awe:
East coast rap meets UK pop in this flawless mashup of Jay Z’s “Song Cry” and Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.”

Love me some Old Ball Coach. Fact that he’s on Twitter now about to provide us with a live stream of his daily thoughts and pictures is like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Got to be completely fair and honest though, first tweet was a solid D- bordering on F. Good news is there’s only one place to go from here, up.
PS – Seriously in what world is “1rst” the abbreviation for first? That’s not Twitter talk, that’s just flat out common sense and basic knowledge sense.
Guy In Lincoln Is Pulled Over And Police Find A Container Labeled “Not Weed.” Guess What Was Inside?
Journal Star – A 21-year-old Lincoln man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and cited for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana after deputies found a 16-ounce container labeled “Not Weed” under the front passenger’s seat. Lancaster County Sheriff’s deputies stopped the driver near Eighth and K streets about 9 p.m. Saturday.
During a search, the sheriff’s office found the plastic sour cream container with 11.4 grams of marijuana. The driver said it belonged to him and was cited. Three passengers in the car were not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the sheriff’s office said.
Did you guess weed? I bet you guessed weed, that was kind of an easy one. I love the classic stoner psychology at play here though. I don’t do marijuana cigarettes any more but I used to smoke like a chimney (hardooo) and I know that where to hide the weed was always a pressing issue. It’s got to be hidden well enough not to be found but also nothing that takes too much work because everybody is high and doesn’t feel like using a lot of effort. So while I understand the “NOT WEED” container in theory you’re also playing with dynamite. Because once you tell someone not to look for weed in a container the first thing they’re going to do is look for weed in that container. Best laid plans of mice and men I guess. Personally, I would have gone with the double reverse psychology move and kept the weed in a container labeled “WEED.” But that’s also because I get super stressed out when things aren’t in the right place. It’s a real problem in my life. I think I have OCD or might be gay or something. Who knows. Anyway, what were we talking about again?
Love or hate this guy nobody can argue this is a brilliant move. Get a creative idea, upload it to Youtube, stick it on Reddit and cross your fingers it goes viral. Boom, mission accomplished. Beats the hell out of Monster.com or a temp agency or sending a bunch of emails that go unresponded to begging for a meeting like a schmuck. Job market is for suckers. It’s 2015, technology city, gotta learn how to harness it. I’ll give it 1 week before this guy is in a corner office at Snapchat designing new geotags and helping Spiegel wipe his Stanford emails from the internet.
Daily Mail - A man-made party island set to rival Ibiza is being planned to attract revellers to the Arabian Gulf.
Dream Island will be able to host around 20,000 partygoers with two ‘mega clubs’, four beach clubs, five hotels and 100 restaurants. The island will be in Ras Al Khaimah, which is only a 40-minute drive from Dubai, once construction is completed.
But unlike Dubai where a personal licence is needed to drink alcohol, booze will flow freely on the island. Sales and marketing director George Saad said: ‘We’re trying to make it the new Ibiza – a mini Ibiza dedicated solely to partying.
Paraglide to your room, snorkel with sharks in a restaurant…
Dubai has given the green light to yet another outrageous building project – a 4,000-acre complex of towers inspired by characters from Arabian Nights, including Aladdin and Sinbad the Sailor.
‘People will be able to come here, stay in the hotel party at clubs on the beach, anything in the world you can do.
‘And we are trying to attract festivals to come here – like Burning Man.’
The 4 million square foot island will feature no homes and will only be open to visitors and residents of the neighbouring islands.
The island was built in 2013 and development to make it into a clubber’s paradise is expect to be finished by 2018.
The four islands of Al Marjan stretch nearly three miles out into the sea and cover an area of 2.7 million square metres.
Well this just made any vacations you have planned for the upcoming future look like absolute shit. Oh Mexico, the Caribbean, South America? Sounds cool, I remember my first Spring Break. What are you doing all-inclusive? Get a little wristband to have unlimited shitty food and cocktails in hollowed out pineapples with like 1/4 of a shot in each one? Meanwhile Dubai just built a god damn man made island existing with literally only one purpose, non stop partying. No bullshit extras like “homes” and “businesses,” just clubs and bars and clubs and clubs and sluts and paragliding into your hotel room after snorkeling with sharks.
Combine this with those chicks we saw from Tinder Dubai?
Yeah, cancel your plans. We’re going to Dream Island. RIP Ibiza.
New albums from Drake, Big Sean, and Jack U, fresh singles from Zedd, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye, Alesso, Action Bronson, and Passion Pit, monster remixes from Elephante, Adventure Club, and Gryffin, and a whole lot more hot fire made February the biggest and best month of music we’ve seen in a minute.
