Here we are back again, trying to figure out which of this year’s super summer jams can be the Official V+V 2014 Summer Jam. In this installment, we’ll bring another couple jams that most people wouldn’t listen to together.
Just a note: I heard “Fancy” on the radio at the liquor store yesterday, so either I’m really good at this or really bad at this.
