Lloyd's "Dedication to My Ex" could be 2011's "Fuck You" – the crazy catchy, joyfully profane, vaguely retro R&B song that sweeps the internet. Over a slinky, organ-splashed groove that could have come from a Raphael Saadiq album (or Frat Rock!), Lloyd bemoans an unfaithful lady while his backup singers unleash an extremely grandma-unfriendly refrain: "I miss that pussy, that pussy, that pussy, that pussy!" Andre 3000's cameo, packed with slick wordplay and delivered in a relaxed, behind-the-beat attack, sounds killer. The end result makes sexual angst sounds like hot fun on a Friday night; credit everyone involved (including producer Polow da Don) that the 200 or so mentions of "pussy" is only one reason among several that "Dedication to My Ex (Miss That)" is notable. Lord knows what they'll do for a "clean" version.

    “Whoomp! (There It Is)”

    Tag Team | 1993

    Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
