8 'Lean On' Covers That Prove Its Staying Power Past 2015

2015's premier summer jam is the gift that keeps on giving

Last year, Major Lazer (the electronic dance music group consisting of producers Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire), dropped the song "Lean On" with DJ Snake and MØ -- one of summer 2015's chief jams, and one we still find ourselves bopping to today.

"Lean On" has, no joke, been streamed nearly 8 million times on Spotify, making it the most-played song of all time on the streaming service. The music video has over 1.4 billion views on YouTube, too. No big deal. Naturally, the track made MTV's list of the Best Songs Of 2015.

But just because it's 2016 now doesn't mean "Lean On" is over. Check out these insanely rad covers that take the song to a whole new level.

  1. Max Schneider and his brother Kurt put together a chilling, stripped down version of the jam.

  2. In her signature style, Christina hopped on the keys and recorded herself on Logic to self-produce this beautiful cover.

  3. With a dreamy setting and angelic vocals, the Nashville stars kill it acoustically.

  4. R5 has a way of covering songs and making them totally their own. "Lean On" with a tambourine and shakers? Yes.

  5. Ali's powerful voice slays in this insane pop-influenced take.

  6. R. City did an acoustic remix of "Lean On," adding in the rap from their track "Make Up."

  7. Leave it to Sam Tsui to brilliantly mash it up with Bill Withers's classic "Lean on Me."

  8. This slowed-down, acoustic cover is hauntingly beautiful and elegantly simple.
