Super producer Diplo takes a crack at remixing the most viewed Youtube song of all time, Psy’s “Gangnam Style”. 2 Chainz and Tyga add a verse to the remix.
An obvious unfinished version of a Posner single leaked earlier today. It was first featured in that awkward Reebok commercial and now we hear the track in it’s (90%) entirety.
