From Mariah Carey to Britney and Iggy, catch all the BBMAs performances here.

David Guetta has already released six singles (by my count) from sixth LP Listen, but the French DJ finally strikes chart gold with Afrojack and Nick Minaj collaboration “Hey Mama.” The slick bop, which features the uncredited vocals of rising pop diva Bebe Rexha, is already sitting pretty in the iTunes top 10 and should achieve the same feat on the Billboard Hot 100 later this week. It’s ridiculously catchy and an obvious Song Of The Summer contender.

All it needs to reach the next level of popularity is a killer video and the trio (kind of) delivers. While not as epic and stylish as “Dangerous” or as original as “Lovers On The Sun,” the visual takes inspiration from Mad Max — or more likely the blockbuster reboot — and takes place in a desert wasteland. There are car chases, dance scenes and even a hologram of Nicki Minaj rocking that all-too-familiar pink wig. If you’re wondering why the clip isn’t on YouTube or Vevo yet, that’s because it exclusively premiered on a new site called Vessel. Watch up top.
