Seven Hot Hip-Hop Crews: Odd Future

Doris arrives three years after Sweatshirt's debut mixtape, Earl, cemented his stature as a lyricist and MC, even as he disappeared from the public eye while attending a reform school in Samoa. Sweatshirt is also set to perform on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on August 9th. He's currently on tour. For full dates, visit Earl Sweatshirt's Facebook page.

“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."
