It came out so long ago we can't remember if we heard anyone chat over Major Lazer's indefatigable "Pon de Floor," but chances are whoever did sucked yakballz compared to Busy Signal's ferocious take. We didn't think it could get any spazzier but Busy's frenetic, wine-instructive cadence chops it up like a top chef and gives a song that ran our summer a brand new life. If "Pon de Floor" was the audio embodiment of Skerrit Bwoy daggering a lady off a ladder, this would be his Evel Kneivel/Man on Wire feat, a wild skydive of a thing.
