Molly is a drug and lots of singers are singing about it

By now you've likely heard about molly -- the much buzzed about street name for the drug MDMA, which was recently linked to two deaths at the Electric Zoo festival held in New York City over Labor Day weekend.

Molly, which is short for "molecule," is ideally pure MDMA, but is the basically the same ecstasy of the '90s that has been rebranded as a purer, gentler party drug, though its users have no guarantee they are buying unadulterated MDMA.

As the drug seemingly gains popularity, there are those who say it's no coincidence as some of today's biggest artists are dropping references about the drug in their biggest hit. And you have everyone from former Disney darling Miley Cyrus to Kanye West singing about popping a Molly.

CAUTION: Strong language ahead.

Miley Cyrus - We Can't Stop


"We like to party dancing with molly/Doing whatever we want"



Rihanna - Diamonds


Palms rise to the universe/ As we moonshine and molly/ Feel the warmth, we’ll never die/ We’re like diamonds in the sky"



(Explicit lyrics) Tyga ft. Wiz Khalifa & Mally Mal - "Molly"
