On this exuberant rap ode to beer goggles – or, in this case, Belvedere goggles - three of the world's biggest MCs load up on vodka and propose marriage to honeys in the V.I.P. room.  Jay-Z coos sweet nothings ("I walk down this aisle faithfully, cut that cake for me") over a pumping, brass-bolstered beat, while Andre 3000 waxes poetic ("Lets put a baby butterfly up in your lil' cocoon"). As for Jeezy, he dispenses with the flowery stuff and gets to the point: "I'll do anything to leave here tonight with you,"he barks. "I said I do, I do, I do, I do, I do."

    “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."
