Syleena Johnson 

Syleena Johson had a tough assignment on "All Falls Down" — covering a sample from Lauryn Hill's "Mystery of Iniquity" — but her husky voice lived up to the task perfectly. Since that song's success, Syleena released three of her own albums, most recently 2011's Chapter 5: Underrated, and landed a starrig role on the TV show R&B Divas. Interesting sidenote: Her father is soul legend Syl Johnson, who's sued Kanye for sampling his "Different Strokes" without permission on "The Joy."
