‘Lean On’ – Major Lazer & DJ Snake feat. MØ

Here’s a song I initially resisted before finally succumbing to its charms.

Those charms include singer MØ’s alien charisma and serpentine dance moves in the song’s irresistible video as well as the “ay-oh” ear worm that separates the chorus from the verses.

This is one of six tracks on my top 20 that I discovered through my Billboard excavations, which should delight my readers who believe my year-end list is devoid of radio hits.

[Verse 1: MØ]
Do you recall, not long ago
We would walk on the sidewalk?
Innocent, remember?
All we did was care for each other

[Pre-Chorus 1: MØ]
But the night was warm
We were bold and young
All around, the wind blows
We would only hold on to let go

[Chorus: MØ]
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
All we need is somebody to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
All we need is somebody to lean on

[Verse 2: MØ]
What will we do when we get old?
Will we walk down the same road?
Will you be there by my side?
Standing strong as the waves roll over

[Pre-Chorus 2: MØ]
But the nights are long
Longing for you to come home
All around the wind blows
We would only hold on to let go

[Chorus: MØ]
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
All we need is somebody to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
All we need is somebody to lean on

[Bridge: MØ]
All we need is somebody to lean on
(We need someone to lean on)
All we need is somebody to lean on
Lean on, lean on, lean on, lean on…
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey…

[Chorus: MØ]
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
All we need is somebody to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
All we need is somebody to lean on

    Way to shoehorn a billboard song.😄 There are definitely better hit songs from last year in my opinion, but this isn’t bad.
