"I wore a shirt one day with a machine gun silhouette sporting a rainbow clip. Gun guy flipped over it and asked me where I got it."
The artist Robert Jones was wearing a T-shirt portraying a machine gun with a rainbow clip to an auction when "gun guy" - often the high bidder on weapons and related items - took notice. Jones told this story to Jack White in an email, and White lifted the lyrics for his song "Machine Gun Silhouette."
"Lean On" was originally sent by Major Lazer to both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj's camps as a slower reggae track. After both parties rejected the tune, Major Lazer recruited Danish singer MØ to supply vocals and recorded it themselves.
