Skrillex teamed up with seasoned film composer/ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Cliff Martinez to score Spring Breakers, in which Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens go wild and James Franco plays a rapper-criminal. Along with previously released songs by Gucci Mane, Meek Mill and Ellie Goulding (and one where Franco flows in character),  Skrillex has embedded an EP's worth of new material (two solo tracks, three with Martinez). It's refined, minimalist, often quite lovely and even chiller than Trent Reznor's Social Network score. He could have a second career in Hollywood once the whole dubstep thing dries up.

    Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

    This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
