Mixology master Gregg Gillis is like a DJ guardian angel of the pop spheres, beaming his remixes from some cloud where Fat Joe and Spacehog are partying down together for all eternity. In his latest album-length sound clash (released via free download on his Illegal Art website), he serves up Foxy Brown over Peter Gabriel, M.O.P. over Miley Cyrus, Big Boi over Portishead, even Ke$ha chanting "Police shut us down!" over a Grand Funk Railroad drum solo. But he always finds weird new emotional nuances in the samples — like when he lays B.o.B's taunting "Haterz Everywhere" over the warm, pretty piano outro from "Layla."

    “Bleeding Love”

    Leona Lewis | 2007

    In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
