And the most popular songs of the decade with the fewest lyrics are…Martin Garri Dryo

Dance music at its core is no better than the beat that drives the song, and a list compiled by Cloud Cover Music calls out the most popular dance music songs of the decade that have the least amount of unique lyrics.

Topping the list, unsurprisingly, is none other than Martin Garrix‘s “Animals,” which uses an average number of five unique lyrics throughout the track. Garrix makes the list twice, with his collaboration “Like I Do” with David Guetta and Brooks landing the No. 8 spot. “Harlem Shake” by Baauer takes the runner-up position, followed by “Turn Down For What” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon.

Frequenters on the compiled list are highly accomplished dance music artists, such as Calvin Harris and the beloved late Avicii. ZHU, Coldplay, San Holo, and Daft Punk also make the list.

One-Hit WondersWhat constitutes a one-hit wonder? It seems like it should be cut and dry, but the designation can be pretty arbitrary, with gut feelings often trumping objective data. The “one-hit wonder” label can sometimes befall an artist with a robust catalog, whose fans will inevitably insist their fave does not deserve to be categorized as … More »

Minneapolis’ snow-capped NYE festival is back, returning this year for its fourth annual installment.

However, midwestern bass heads are in for a real treat this time around, as the full NYE 2019 roster includes a rumbling concoction of 1788-L, Big Wild, Dion Timmer, Zomboy, Juice WRLD, and more. Other festival ammenities have yet to be announced, but if attendees are looking to hit the slopes for a bit, there’s a variety of options in the Minneapolis area.

Hosted by Zeds Dead-owned imprint Deadbeats, Snowta Festival 2019 takes place on December 30 – 31 to ring in the New Year at famed Minnesota venue The Armory. GA and VIP tickets are available now. See the full lineup below.

Marshmello was just added to the Guinness Book of World Records for becoming the first “person” to dance on the wing of an in-flight plane. Setting the fuggin world on fire. Wild, I know. And I think it may have something to do with Marshmello being from Area51 and not actually being a “person”. I

The Chainsmokers steal Calvin Harris’ spot of ‘Highest Paid DJ’ in new Forbes list

The Chainsmokers steal Calvin Harris’ spot of ‘Highest Paid DJ’ in new Forbes listgames 5 Galen Oakes

Forbes’ “Highest Paid DJ” list has just come out, and Calvin Harris has officially been dethroned by The Chainsmokers after six years spent at the number one slot.

The Chainsmokers’ have had their biggest year in earnings yet, with the duo taking home a cool $46 million. This comes as no surprise; after all, they’ve been dominating the airwaves over the past couple years with huge pop anthems. They’re also in the middle of a lucrative three-year contract with Wynn Las Vegas; combine that with a myriad of other headlining gigs at major festivals, and one-off private appearances elsewhere, and it becomes clear how they’ve managed to rake in such vast amounts of capital.

Marshmello has also been climbing the ranks, and actually landed in second place this year with $40 million in net earnings. Calvin Harris found himself demoted to the third slot with $38.5 million. Meanwhile, Steve Aoki took home the fourth ranking, largely in part to him playing 200 gigs through the past year and numerous brand deals on top.

Per usual, female DJs are missing from the list.

Full Ranking:

  1. The Chainsmokers ($46 million)
  2. Marshmello ($40 million)
  3. Calvin Harris ($38.5 million)
  4. Steve Aoki ($30 million)
  5. Diplo ($25 million)
  6. Tiësto ($24 million)
  7. Martin Garrix ($19 million)
  8. David Guetta ($18 million)
  9. Zedd ($17 million)
  10. Armin van Buuren ($15 million)
  11. Kaskade ($14 million)
  12. Skrillex ($13 million)
  13. Alesso ($12.5 million)
  14. Afrojack ($12 million)
  15. Tie: DJ Snaje, DJ Pauly D, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ($11.5 million)
