A Louisiana Democrat who's more convincing quiet-storm smooth than redneck-rock rowdy, Faith Hill's hubby has topped country's singles chart 22 times since 1994. This double disc compiles all of those tracks, which makes it a respectable career overview — the lost-cause divorce lament "Angry All the Time" and Latin-lilting midlife progress report "My Next Thirty Years," especially, are worth obtaining wherever you can. Problem is, McGraw's best singles frequently aren't his biggest. In fact, the two album-concluding "bonus" novelties here (a dance mix of "Indian Outlaw" and "Felt Good on My Lips") trounce most of the legit Number Ones.

    “Promiscuous”

    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."
