"Touchin, Lovin" featuring Nicki Minaj - Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj give R. Kelly and The Notorious B.I.G.'s classic "F--k You Tonight" a reworking for "Touchin, Lovin." It's all about who can turn who out here as the man who invented sex proclaims,"Girl you f----n' with the best/Take a picture while I’m deep up in it/Oh-oh-oh, and if they living right next/Then I bet they know my name in a minute."(Photo: Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images for DCP)

Ja Rule, "I'm Real" ft. Jennifer Lopez - Being able to hit a note was the ultimate gift and a curse for Ja Rule. Hip hop purists mocked the Murda Inc. star for his melodic abilities, but his career reached new levels when he unleashed his gruff baritone on Jennifer Lopez's 2001 single "I?m Real.? Ja helped push the song to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and his talents as a crooner were in high demand soon after. Surely we all know what brought his reign to an end.   (Photo: Frank Micelotta/ImageDirect)

Fabolous Featuring Tamia: "So Into You" - Fab gave CPR to Tamia?s ?98 single when he covered it for his Street Dreams LP five years later. The album?s original version featured Ashanti, but when she couldn?t make the video, Fab re-released it with Tamia reprising her old hook. Smart move! The song peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The original had only made it to No. 4.(Photos: Scott Gries/PictureGroup; Ben Rose/PictureGroup)

Mariah Carey Featuring Ol' Dirty Bastard: "Fantasy" - On paper a Mariah Carey and Ol' Dirty Bastard collaboration sounds like such a bad idea, which is exactly what made the single so brilliant. Carey?s sweet vocals and ODB?s drunken grit somehow matched perfectly over the Top 40 instrumental. ?Me and Mariah go back like babies and pacifiers? gets you everytime.(Photo: Scott Gries/Getty Images)

"Déjà Vu" - When R&B and rap really result in love and hip hop, you have music's royal couple, Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Her hit "Déjà Vu" was one of the first times that we were able to really see and feel their chemistry and they've kept the hits coming ever since! (Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
