1. Mary J. Blige

The queen of hip hop soul reigns over our list thanks to truly timeless turns with Jay-Z ("Can't Knock the Hustle"), Method Man ("I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need to Get By") and Ghostface Killah ("All That I Got Is You"). No other R&B singer is messing with that run of classic guest appearances. Bow down.
