Rising pop singer-songwriter ZZ Ward released her debut studio album Til the Casket Drops in October. Now you can check out this bumping remix of the album cut "Put the Gun Down" courtesy of Passion Pit, who trade in the original's retro-soul feel for a bouncing, sticky synth riff.

"I could have never imagined hearing my song remixed the way Passion Pit did," Ward tells Rolling Stone. "They are so incredibly talented and it's so exciting to hear your song in a totally new light! They really breathe a whole new life into it!"

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
