Drake - 'Back To Back'

Rihanna - 'Bitch Better Have My Money'

Rihanna’s vocals combined with a bass-filled trap beat, was always going to be a winning combination. The controversial music video added an extra edge.

Wiz Khalifa Feat. Charlie Puth 'See You Again'

Wiz Khalifa’s deep lyrics and Charlie Puth‘s spine-tingling chorus provided a perfect soundtrack to ‘Fast And Furious 7’. 

Vic Mensa Feat. Kanye West - 'U Mad'

Originally only the second half of a song, Kanye West convinced Vic Mensa to transform ‘U Mad’ into a single. What a great decision. The aggressive lyrics and intense production match the theme perfectly.

Big Sean - 'I Don't F**k With You'

Following his high-profile break-up with Naya Rivera, Sean went into the studio and produced an anthem. The production by DJ Mustard, DJ Dahi and Kanye West, creates a refreshing blend of soul and bass.
