7. Jay-Z featuring Justin Timberlake - 'Holy Grail'
Why we like it: Leave it to Jay Z for popping up right in the middle of the summer with a whole new album. "Magna Carta Holy Grail" was not at all the rapper's finest moment, but combining with another big-name artist, Justin Timberlake, for a song that really just sounds like three songs in one: go big or go home.
Burn out factor: "Holy Grail" sampled "Smells Like Teen Spirit" for almost no discernible reason except as a nostalgic backdrop for a murky song about the annoyances of fame. There's a lot to unpackage there, a code to crack if you will, which has been entertainment enough for about seven weeks.
Will we remember it 10 years from now? Compared to the breadth of work Hov has offered besides? Nah.
