Music Break: Major Lazer & DJ Snake – Lean On

December 28, 2015

It’s catchy.

Raw Story:

Going by Spotify’s revelation that the most-streamed song – not just of of 2015 but of all time – was Lean On, The Atlantic was able to declare the Major Lazer/DJ Snake/MØ collaboration the most 2015-iest song of the year.

Lean On is something of a catchy cultural mish-mash – a Danish singer, a French Rapper, an American/Trinidadian electronic dance music trio, and a music video shot in India.

But does being very much of its time and massively popular equate to emblematic or iconic musical status? As stand-in for the sound of a whole year?

In case you were wondering, there’s also a video teaching the Bollywood dance moves seen above.  If you’re hunkering down for an ice storm, like I am, this could keep you occupied.
