Major Lazer ft. Mø & Justin Bieber, “Cold Water”

Can anyone besides Major Lazer or DJ Snake make a summer dance song?

Kiiara, “Gold”

Kiara “Kiiara” Saulters hails from Oak Lawn, Illinois. Her 2016 released EP, low kii savage sounds like grim hip-hop. Goth-hop, anyone?

Katy Perry, “Rise”

No?

The MC stands for Mac n Cheese.
