5. Jagged Edge f/ Nelly "Where the Party At" (2001)
Album: Jagged Little Thrill
Producer: Jermaine Dupri
One of the biggest crossover club tracks of the So So Def catalog, "Where the Party At," featured Nelly, who was at the height of his popularity; his 2000 album Country Grammar would go on to become one of the ten best-selling LPs of the decade. Shortly after the song's release in May of 2001, it hit No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the group's biggest single ever.
The song was produced by Dupri, and topped the Hip-Hop/R&B charts for three straight weeks. If you were watching MTV, listening to radio, or walking anywhere in either Midwest farm towns or major metropolises, the song was unavoidable. Everyone had trouble finding the party, and that was reason enough to celebrate.
