Yesterday, Reddit was abuzz with a discussion on Mike Posner’s latest single ‘I took a pill in Ibiza’. The single surged to #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week and #1 on the UK official singles chart, setting the stage for his appearance on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this evening, and today’s announcement of the release of Mike’s long-awaited second album, At Night, Alone.
The reddit thread talked about what song Posner was referring to when he said "I get along with old timers 'Cause my name's a reminder of a pop song people forgot" The most popular comment stated that he was referring to his own song "Cooler than me." Which he feels he is most associated with.
