9. Juicy J f/ Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz "Bandz a Make Her Dance" (2012)



When the first few notes of "Bandz a Make Her Dance" sound out, you've got about 15 seconds to brace yourself before all hell breaks loose, both on producer Mike Will Made It's brilliantly southern, syrupy, slightly-Gregorian instrumental, and wherever the song's being played. Juicy J's assertion that "she start twerking when she hear her song" turns out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy, as nearly anyone with a pulse will find it exceedingly difficult to remain still when this record drops, especially if there's a stripper pole nearby.

The song's an unapologetic celebration of excess, vulgarity, the almighty dollar, the young women raking in thousands of them every night at the strip club, and the particular body parts they make clap—which, for the record: not their hands—with which they do it (talk about making ends meet). It's a bizarre fantasy of a record with a slamming rhythm, endless quotables, and plenty of clear-as-day references to a certain school of dancing. Like a great dream you have to wake up from to go to work, it's a wild ride that no one wants to end, one you can't help but move to, let alone try to return to at all hours of the day.
