Tove Lo, “2 Die 4”
First, a caveat that the above video is not fully functional. (Check out the track on Spotify here if it’s better suited to your current situation.) Now, let’s talk about “2 Die 4″—which is exactly what it is. Its lush swirl of production produces a hard, sexy chorus that brings a modern electro-pop shimmer to the lift of Hot Butter’s 1972 classic “Popcorn” and flexes as a triumph of the genre.

Thanks to Oscar Gores for making this idea a reality. The character is Wonder Woman with a lot of D-K energy and I love it. Go keep repeating.” Seriously, don’t try. , Katie Benny

Why don’t you?’ There was no point in saying yes!
