The 50 Best Songs of 2012

29. French Montana f/ Rick Ross, Drake & Lil Wayne "Pop That"

Album: Excuse My French
Producer: Anthony Lee
Label: Bad Boy, Interscope

Once you accept that "Pop That" is pure, unadulterated rap music for the (strip) clubs, you'll also realize how goddamn inescapably enjoyable it is, too. With French Montana leading the way and throwing down his "work!" ad-libs all over the monstrous production, the track gives way to loveable, explicit rhymes from Rick Ross, Drake, and Lil Wayne.

But let's be real: you're not listening to "Pop That" because you want to hear sharp punchlines or slick 16s. You're listening to it because you're on a dance floor somewhere, or in a car with the volume cranked up and your friends losing their shit. Also, that Uncle Luke sample? Perfect. — AM
