While I’m sure you’re all probably sick to death of the insane amount of Great Gatsby coverage by now, this jam from the film’s soundtrack is too good to miss! An original, Gatsby-exclusive song contributed to the soundtrack by Black Eyed Pea Fergie, “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody” is a perfect summer dance anthem with swing, hip-hop, and dubstep influences. Add this one to your pregame playlist right meow! Aside from being ridiculously catchy and impossible to not perk up when you listen to it, the song references the amazing, opulent, over-the-top party scenes in GG. Who doesn’t want some of that?! Listen for yourself below!
Baz Luhrmann and Jay-Z though! This is good, right? I can’t stop listening! Any song that justifies a little craziness gets a top spot on my recently played list, and Fergie knows just how to do it right. If you’re wondering about the rest of the tracks, trust that the entire Great Gatsby soundtrack is just as Jam-worthy–and not just to me! It debuted #1 on the Billboard Digital Albums chart in it’s first week. Then again, with covers, originals, diverse musical genres and styling, and a collection of some of today’s hottest and most talented artists, that shouldn’t really come as a surprise. Love love love.
