Poppy electronic tunes and "seductively tainted love songs" don't really go hand-in-hand.
But in Miami, anything goes... Especially 'round New Year's Eve.
That's why supermodel-turned-DJ twins Nervo and XO recording artist The Weeknd are throwing one of the biggest NYE 2015 ragers, poolside at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.

Abel Tesfaye AKA the Weeknd rang in 2014 at the Delano Hotel last year, where the dreadlocked pretty boy put on a "thrilling, albeit short, performance backed by his own three-piece band."
But homeboy's done a lot over the past year. He recently wrapped up his fall tour, and these days, he seems to be locked up in his studio.
Sure, he's teased fans with a couple of new releases during the last few months, but with a follow up to 2013's Kiss Land long overdue, we can only hope Tesfaye has something up his sleeve for 2015.
Hailing from the Land Down Under, Mim and Liv have spent the last few weeks spreading their positive #Nervonation vibes across the globe, tearing up international stages at the Stereosonic Festival in their homeland of Australia and at the Rage Festival South Africa.
And in just a few weeks, the Nervo twins will make their way to the Magic City for Life In Color at Sunlife Stadium before getting "Ready for the Weekend" with Tesfaye at the Fontainebleau.
Till then, brace yourself for lots of seductive fist pumping on the 31st.
