Producer: Tricky Stewart, The-Dream
Album: I Am...Sasha Fierce
Queen B's 2009 single struck fear in the hearts of playboys across the land. How could they keep their side pieces and almost-wifeys—all wishing for more than hard D and bubble gum—at bay when a newly wed Beyoncé was singing, “If you liked it, then you should've put a ring on it?”
Not only did Mrs. Carter tell women not to stand for their guy's bullshit, she did it to a dope, 808-thumping Tricky Stewart beat. And let's not forget to mention its chic, black and white dance-heavy video that Kanye famously dubbed the greatest one of "ALL TIME!" Your options? Man up and claim your chick. Or two, get left. Blame B.
