Kreayshawn pays a rowdy, wobbly tribute to booty shakin' on her new track "Twerkin!!!" Over a swirling beat that morphs with intensity, the Bay Area MC defiantly weaves her high-pitched flow to describe impressive back-end dance moves. Diplo steps out from behind the decks and into a more active role, smothering the mic for a deadpan motormouth hook, while Sissy Nobby injects hyped up rally cries. "I'm not really concerned with trying to turn haters into believers," Kreayshawn told Rolling Stone in May. "I just think it's going to be a fun-ass album for my fans that I have now, and for people who have only heard one song."

"Twerkin!!!" is on Kreayshawn's upcoming debut album, Somethin 'Bout Kreay, out September 18th. Preorder it here.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
