Lady Gaga - Applause (Viceroy Remix)

Feels Like: Major Lazer, Katy Perry, 

While not a part of Viceroy's amazing "Jet Life" series (which we covered here and here), Viceroy's take on Lady Gaga's "Applause" has all the glassy, tropical elements we've come to expect from him. Much like Major Lazer, Viceroy appropriates third-world elements (Reggae guitars, Reggaeton horn blasts) and weaves them seamlessly into pop-dance backdrops. He's taken a song that wasn't quite as punch-y as Lady Gaga's past hits, and given it the extra oomph it needed.
