1. XXXO (Remix) - M.I.A. featuring Jay-Z

I'm so in love with the hot breaks on this track. I totally adore M.I.A. and respect Jay-Z, so this is a superb and long-awaited hook-up that, of course, booms.

2. Nothin' On You - B.o.B. featuring Bruno Mars

A chart-topping rap/R&B hybrid hit that works because these two guys croon the perfect lyrics that every girl wants to hear from their man.

3. As We Enter - Nas and Damian Marley

The energetic bounce and beats of this reggae-rap collaboration are fun, fresh and feisty.

4. Power - Kanye West featuring Dwele

Despite his impulsive nature and questionable character flaws, Kanye West is a musical genius. This anthem-esque track with soul singer Dwele is an ear-catching comeback.

5. Tangerine - Big Boi featuring T.I. and Khujo

This experimental track mixes up Nirvana hooks with a killer Arabic beat and OutKast sentimentalism.
