I feared A-Trak’s remix of “Indestructable,” his being a style embraced far more by “bro” than “homo” culture.

E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact information, winner will be contacted next week.

OK, we get it. Everyone hangs out in New York and gets crazy super fly with models and talk boxes and high-top fades.

Maybe it’s just because the song is pure, pure, pure, pure fire.
