19. Eve f/ Alicia Keys "Gangsta Lovin'" (2002)
Producer: Irv Gotti, Channel 7
“Why not Alicia Keys?” was the simple reasoning behind Eve's choice to put Keys on the debut track from her third studio album, EVE-olution. It made sense for two of the hottest women in the industry linked up on this 2002 hit. Eve’s sensitive thug lyrics fit perfectly with Keys’ airy, soulful hook. The track samples Yarbrough and Peoples' 1980 hit "Don't Stop the Music,” and that's exactly how we felt about this low key banger.
