A look at the latest from the genre in the top half of the list
Miley Cyrus joins will.i.am’s bass thumping beats in this one that is all about having a good time. Their third collaboration also features rappers Wiz Khalifa and French Montana as it heads straight into your groovy playlist for the month.
Hip hop goes old-school with this one by Trey Songz that has a low tempo. Loungy with a catchy tune and lyrics, it’s a pleasant break from the electro beats that dominate the countdown.
I Luh Ya Papi
J Lo’s lead single from her eighth studio album is clearly her answer to the objectification of women as is evident in her video filled with hunky, half-naked men and a guest appearance by French Montana. She raps through a major part of this upbeat, happy tune.
With the Indie sound of Nate Ruess’ vocals, Marshall Mathers aka Eminem talks about the ebbs and flows of family and more specifically about his estranged relationship with his mother. Not as explicit as his other lyrics and a lot less angsty, this one talks about forgiveness and acceptance in a soft, soothing tune.
Wild Wild Love
Pitbull takes hip hop back into the club with his Midas touch once again. Broken into two halves with a spoken interlude, the song moves from the Playboy Mansion to Miami and revolves around certain questionable motives, well masked in a tune that goes easy on the electro and high on a pop-synth sound.
