To borrow from the lyrics of "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks," is there any possibility that anyone feels like Miley Cyrus? You know, that nagging "my buzz is gone and I need to re-up on reality" vibe? Thankfully, Doggfather Snoop Lion totally gets it — that's why he's rolling blunt after blunt after blunt after blunt. After all, this is a song about mourning. These two are gonna need Danny Brown amounts of weed to get through.
Thanks to Major Lazer's mastery of dub-addled pop production (see the magnificent "Get Free") this odd couple sound oddly in sync, with Cyrus doing her best Rihanna-via-Stefani thing and the Boss Cat stonily singing about the confounding mysteries of the human condition: "Seems like everyday we puttin' more 6 feet underground / So blessed, what goes up must come down." Not sure what that means, but the answer's probably in the ashtray.
And yes, the Police's Stewart Copeland is on percussion duty. Duh.
