Miguel

#4 - Miguel - How Many Drinks?

I have a hard time believing that Miguel needs to use liquor to get a woman to go home with him. Especially now that he can simply say, “Hey, come back to my place and I'll let you hold my Grammy.” Nonetheless, the latest...Read More

Rihanna

TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine & Tank)

#8 - TGT - Sex Never Felt Better

Being serenaded by Tank, Ginuwine and Tyrese all at once sounds like a scenario out of a female R&B fan's dreams, but there's no need to pinch yourself—I assure you, this is real. Formed way back in 2007 but kept in...Read More

The Weeknd

#9 - The Weeknd - Wicked Games (Until the Ribbon Breaks Version)

Nelly

#12 - Nelly - Hey Porsche

Released in 1983, one of Prince's biggest hits recounted a one-night stand with a woman as sleek and fast as a Little Red Corvette. As it turns out, Nelly's also into comparing females to sports cars, but he prefers a...Read More

Justin Timberlake

#13 - Justin Timberlake ft. Jay-Z - Suit & Tie

Mariah Carey

#16 - Mariah Carey - Almost Home

Let's be real—as a twentysomething male music journalist, I'm about as far from the target market for Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful as a consumer could possibly be. That said, I can't hate on anything that leads to...Read More

August Alsina

#17 - August Alsina ft. Trinidad Jame$ - I Luv This Sh*t

The Dream

#21 - The-Dream ft. Fabolous - Slow It Down

Fun as it may be to do (what currently passes for) the Harlem Shake, idiotic arm-flailing and air-humping isn't going to help get your partner in the mood. Of course, making romance requires not only the right moves, but an...Read More
