The 25 Best Songs of 2011 (So Far)

#11. jj "Still"

Producer: jj

Label: Sincerely Yours

Complex says: Okay, fine. Technically, this song dropped last year. But so what? It’s too awesome for us to pass up on. Released on Christmas Eve 2010, this song served as the opening track to the Swedish band’s Kills mixtape. The song interpolates the beat to Dr. Dre’s “Still Dre” as singer Elin Kastlander adds her airy, hypnotic dream pop vocals (and quotes a few Drake bars). The result is an instantly recognizable banger that’s surprisingly engaging. People seem to be catching on to jj too. Earlier this year their song “My Life” (which quotes Wayne’s hook from Game’s “My Life) ended up being used during an ad for Battlefield 3. We were skeptical at first too, but trust us, after one spin you’ll be riding around bumping this like it’s 1999 all over again.
