If you’re celebrating the 35th anniversary reissue of Fleetwood Mac‘s Rumours, don’t even think about hosting an average sing-along or staging a dramatic interpretation of the band’s personal lives–Glee already beat you to the latter, anyway–without including some glorious contributions from an unexpected source: 2 Chainz. 2 Chainz and Fleetwood Mac?! Yes, the Earth is still spinning, even if we were one day too early in publishing our weirdest musical collaborations list. Stevie Nicks and Chainz both enjoy maintaining long locks, but who knew their musical stylings were so compatible?
Does the world look a little clearer today? Because yesterday, after 16 weeks on the charts, Carly Rae Jepsen‘s seriously infectious “Call Me Maybe” took its deserved place atop the Billboard Hot 100. Accepting the honor, Jepsen told Billboard that she feels “so blessed” because “life keeps surprising me lately,” but we are pretty that anyone with ears and a heart has known since that first listen that this would happen. And, thank you Justin Bieber co-signs and Katy Perry lip synchs and Carlos Pena productions, it finally has!
In honor of the inevitable — and because, really, we still can’t get enough — we’ve rounded up a few new ways for you to listen to America’s favorite song:
- Rostam’s Annie Lennox/Carly Rae Jepsen, “Call Me On Broken Glass”
Conceived of and executed by Rostam Batmanglij, of Vampire Weekend fame, this thumping mash-up of Annie Lennox’s “Walking On Broken Glass” appends the drama of Lennox’s 20-year-old hit to Jepsen’s winking hit. Rostam says that his work “is strictly for the lulz,” and even warns that “it might be evil,” but don’t let that stop you! The best of two songs as an equally good third, this is everything a mash-up should be.
