"I got the swag and it's pumpin' out my ovaries," Kreayshawn noted on 2011's viral smash "Gucci Gucci." The Oakland MC's debut explores her skill at giving hormonally bonkers post-Odd Future shock rap a bratty, ashtray-Madonna spin. Over high-end electro bloop, she brags about pawing strippers and sipping purple with 2 Chainz. And woe be to anyone who does her wrong: "I should key your car, but I'd rather slap your mom/Only a bitch could give birth to such a fuckin' dog," she muses on "Left Ey3," who'd be pleased to see her scorched-earth legacy is in such competent hands.

    “Nightshift”

    The Commodores | 1984

    The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
