Mario

#10 - Mario ft. Nicki Minaj - Somebody Else

Getting dumped is one thing; getting dumped and watching the man or woman you love run straight into the arms of Somebody Else is... well, it's f**king devastating. Unfortunately, that's exactly the situation in which R&B...Read More

Solange Knowles

#17 - Solange ft. Kendrick Lamar - Looks Good With Trouble
