The 25 Best Song Sequels

14. Plies f/ Ne-Yo "Bust it Baby Pt. 2" (2008)


Better Than Original?: Yes

"Bust It Baby" was a solo Plies single that was easily surpassed by its sequel; ultimately, the album would push the original back to bonus track status. "Bust it Baby Part 2" featured Ne-Yo on the chorus and a prominent sample of Janet Jackson's "Come Back To Me." The rap ballad, a syrupy anthem of borderline-devotion, peaked at No. 7 on the Hot 100, becoming not just Plies biggest single, but the biggest single ever released by the Slip-N-Slide label, tied with Trick Daddy's "Let's Go." Your tolerance of Plies may vary, but thug R&B ballads have aged surprisingly well, and "Bust it Baby Part 2" is no exception. It also makes the original seem a little boring in comparison.
