16. Drake f/ Alicia Keys "Fireworks" (2010)
Producer: Noah "40" Shebib
Album: Thank Me Later
On the intro to Drake's major label debut, Alicia Keys swooped in on anxious listeners, who had just pressed play, and were a minute into the album. She set the scene beautifully, matching Drake's woeful sentiments of life changing ascension. Putting Keys on the chorus is never a bad idea.
