Marshmello & Bastille Release Stripped Version of ‘Happier’

97XNBT Day 1 headliner Bastille’s hit song with EDM DJ Marshmello has been dominating the charts for the past few months. The song titled ‘Happier’, which ironically is not happy at all, has tugged at heart strings across the globe while simultaneously kept us dancing along and coming back for more. 

The two artists have now collaborated on a stripped down version and accompanying music video. It will make you fall in love with the song all over again.

We can’t wait to see Bastille headline #97XNBT day 1! Grab tix here now!!

Here is the original video which requires an insane amount of tissues.

Those weird vanilla Tootsie rolls? Some flavorless taffy? PRETZELS?

We’ve all experienced getting Halloween candy that was TOTALLY lame, and Reese’s has decided to do something about it! On October 27th they debuted their Reese’s Candy Converter at the Tarrytown Halloween Parade in New York.

The vending machine allows you to toss in unwanted candy in exchange for a delicious Reese’s!


No tricks here. Trade in your Halloween candy for Reese's candy. What'd you expect from the GOAT of Halloween?! #ReesesCandyConverter #NotSorry — REESE'S (@reeses) October 30, 2018

Unfortunately the only next stop for the machine will be in NYC on 5th Avenue between Washington Square North and East 8th Street. It will be set up for five hours and will exchange up to 10,000 cups.

Here’s to hoping it makes it’s way to Tampa Bay one day!
