Just in case you forgot about Dre during the seven years between his solo debut and his sophomore effort, the Aftermath founder and protege Eminem reminded critics of his impact with this Grammy-winning hit off A rapper admits before launching into his accomplishments. One of the biggest rap stars of the '00s jumped out with a breakthrough hit where every salacious lyric was designed to hold your attention -- a career's worth of punchlines, it seemed, until we realized that all of his singles were kinda like that.
Destiny's Child, "Jumpin' Jumpin'" No. Moby, "Porcelain" No. Blink, "Adam's Song" No. Sisqo, "The Thong Song" No. If you think about it, the "Thong Song" went against everything conventional. Then, he repeats the same verse three times. And third, he hopscotches his way through those verses with Ricky Martin references and cheesy one-liners like "she got Album) like a truck. As he's done from the start of his career until, well, basically his most recent album dropped in January, Eminem takes aim at his perceived adversaries in this masterfully manic Marshall Mathers LP lead single.
He paints a lyrical bull's-eye on everyone from the now-very-outdated Tom Green to the "little girl and boy groups" peppered throughout this very list.
But as much as Em's bars mock the world of pop with cutting precision, this song and its VMAs-dominating video cemented Slim Shady's place in that very universe, skyrocketing him to the top five of the Hot for the first time. The deck has always been stacked against women in pop the further they climb into adulthood, so if Madonna was gonna top the Hot for four consecutive weeks at age 41, she would need a surefire radio winner with cross-generational appeal.
Enter her Mirwais collab "Music," a dancefloor call-to-arms boasting a faint patina of electroclash for the club kids, a throbbing techno beat for suburban ravers and enough old-school electro-funk that her middle-aged fans could still nod along -- Madge making the people come together for the third straight decade.
A Max Martin co-penned classic -- though production was handled solo by his oft-overlooked collaborator Rami Yacoub -- the track encourages realizing your worth and refusing to get pushed aside.
Twenty years after its release, "What a Girl Wants" can still take any child of the late s back to summers filled with choppy haircuts and bare midriffs. After the Dixie Chicks earned their fourth country No. First impressions aren't everything: That's the message behind "Try Again," a slinky, Timbaland-produced jam from the Romeo Must Die soundtrack, which sees Aaliyah telling her potential paramour not to give up on her if she seems shy at first.
Just as a baby's cries whimsically soundtracked the late star's "Are You That Somebody? It's a potent pop pairing, which resulted here in the first Hot No.
Should we be worried that it holds up so well? InDr. There was once a time when Jay-Z was a brash Brooklyn playboy, who relished living life on the edge -- a rap version of Jordan Belfort. Not only does he refuse to wave the white flag on any budding romances "I'll be forever mackin'"but he also brags about his long-lasting stamina when going head-to-head with TV bombshells like Pamela Anderson.
Throw in a Timbaland beat as big as a luxury liner, a timeless Bun B hook, and Pimp C's squeaky clean verse about his player ways, and you've got yourself an MTV Jam of the Week for all time. The Midwest had already gifted the world Eminem via Detroit, but when Nelly's debut LP Country Grammar dropped on June 27,the world got a vastly more celebratory injection of middle American hip-hop, courtesy of the St.
Louis rapper. The album's title track and lead single was an homage to the come up, going "from broke to having brokers" and "down-down-baby your street in a Range Rover," as Nelly flossed in the classic sing-along chorus. Built on a hypnotically effervescent beat from producer Jay E -- a St. Lunatics affiliate credited with developing the St. Louis to Memphis, from Texas back up to Indiana and beyond. If you went through a break-up circaodds are, Macy Gray helped you Album) it. It feels like a good cry -- and came with an equally tear-jerking music video.
The song was nominated for record and song of the year at the Grammys, where it also picked up best female pop vocal performance, and spent 27 weeks on the Hotpeaking at No.
Going off like the alarm clock to wake up all of post-Y2K America, "Party Up Up in Here " was a truly singular ode to going buckwild from a man who knew of what he f--king spoke.
Over a Swizz Beatz production that screeches at you to cut the red wire, DMX lets it rip like Randy Johnson coming in for one inning of bullpen work, sounding all the scarier because the chorus implies he hasn't even truly lost his mind or his cool yet.
A memorable dance routine in the song's music video helped, with millions watching trying to get those dance moves down to hopefully one day show them off on the dancefloor. Can a song be massively influential even if nothing that comes after really sounds like it? Andre and Big Boi trade indomitable verses, but all hip-hop convention ends there: Gospel and Here We Go Again - SR-71 - Here We Go Again (CD rock battle for air space, time and tempo escalate to oblivion, and a choir-sung chorus eerily preludes the new world order lurking over 's shoulder.
In reality, OutKast wrote the Stankonia single more concerned with American ghettos than any foreign policy; Andre used "bombs over Baghdad" as a sonic non sequitur, pulled from an overheard news broadcast. Eminem has correctly been lambasted for his fealty to the actually f--ked-up f-word, but credit where credit's due -- at the turn of the century, no major rapper was going out of their way to convey matter-of-fact empathy for a jilted, pathological fan seeking a same-sex romantic connection.
Over an insistent whisper of a beat and that haunting rework of Dido's "Thank You," Marshall Mathers Album) a brutally vivid portrait of celebrity fixation as a distraction for economic and emotional poverty.
Horrorcore is often more human than horror at its core, and the unsparing conclusion to "Stan" still pains the soul two decades later — so much, in fact, that society had to reimagine the title character in terms of 'net slang in order to smirk through the unwanted feels. How can you avoid a sophomore slump?
Britney Spears followed this recipe for success with "Oops! There's no better way to say hello to a brand-new era than by saying "bye bye bye" to the past. Of course, it's tough to make a fun hit song out of shady business dealings with your boss, so the lyrics instead address a toxic romantic relationship -- though lines like "life would be much better once you're gone" and "I don't want to be the loser and I've had enough" could easily go both ways. You might be surprised to learn that "Bye Bye Bye" topped out at No.
