Chris Brown

#2 - Chris Brown ft. Big Sean & Wiz Khalifa - Til I Die

Is Chris Brown a rapper who sings? A singer who raps? Or perhaps a ringer who sangs? Breezy’s been on an obvious campaign to blur the lines between his R&B and hip-hop for well over a year now and new single Til I Die is...Read More

DJ Khaled

#3 - DJ Khaled ft. Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne - Take It To The Head

Kendrick Lamar

#4 - Kendrick Lamar ft. Dr. Dre - The Recipe

David Banner

#5 - David Banner ft. Snoop Dogg, Game, Nipsey Hussle, Kree & Ras Kass - Californication

#7 - Rick Ross ft. Drake & French Montana - Stay Schemin'

Ne-Yo

#8 - Ne-Yo - Burning Up

While he’s continued to be a regular presence on the guest verse tip, it’s actually been a minute since we’ve heard a solo track from Ne-Yo. (No, I don’t know what happened to The Way You Move either.) But if it takes...Read More

2 Chainz

#9 - 2 Chainz ft. The Weeknd - Like Me

At first blush, 2 Chainz' swag-drenched, sexually-charged brand of Southern rap and The Weeknd's grimy, profoundly moody R&B seem like they'd mix about as well as oil and water—or bleach and ammonia. Turns out, though,...Read More

Chris Brown

#10 - Chris Brown - Sweet Love

While Chris Brown's recent flirtations with rap have garnered him largely positive reviews in the Booth, readers weren't quite so kind in mid-March, when the artist returned to his usual lane with the smooth, sensual F*ck the...Read More

Big K.R.I.T

#11 - Big K.R.I.T. - Sideline

Trey Songz

#13 - Trey Songz - Heart Attack

Nausea, sweating, anxiety, palpitations, shortness of breath—all symptoms that a myocardial infarction can share with acute romantic despair. Trey Songz knows exactly what I'm talking about; on the latest single off his...Read More

Nicki Minaj

Drake

Rihanna

Fat Joe

#17 - Fat Joe ft. Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige, Fabolous & Kirko Bangz - Another Round (Remix)
