The first single from New Medicine's Breaking the Model album is about excessiveness. Vocalist Jake Scherer explained: "Everybody is guilty of that — whether it's drinking or something else. We all hit the point where we say, 'Now, I probably shouldn't have this one more, but I'll do it anyway!' That's the fun part of life. You never know unless you go too far."
"That's also a metaphor for how we perceive music," Scherer added. "We want to cross the line."
The bedrock of David Guetta's Nicki Minaj-featuring single "Hey Mama" is a sample of "Rosie," a 1940s prison recording from folk archivist Alan Lomax that songwriter Esther Dean first showed the French DJ on YouTube.
