VMAs 2016: Kent Jones Talks Song of the Summer and the Major Key He Learned From DJ Khaled

Kent Jones' Don't Mind" -- the catchy, multilingual hip-hop hit that reached No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 -- is one of the summer's most ubiquitous songs. 

More recently, the song earned the artist an invite to the MTV Video Music Awards as it was nominated for song of the summer. The Moonman ultimately went to Fifth Harmony for "All In My Head (Flex)," though. 

But Jones "don't mind," because as he told Billboard on the VMA white carpet Sunday night (Aug. 28), one major key that he has learned from DJ Khaled -- who is responsible for Jones' personal song of the summer, "For Free" -- is to "outwork everybody."
