The 50 Best R&B Songs That Flipped Rap Beats

37. Joya "I Like What You're Doing to Me" (1995)

Producer: Vincent Hubert

Grover Washington, Jr.'s "Hydra" is a popular hip-hop sample, but the particular way it's flipped on Joya's debut single was popularized by Black Moon's "How Many MCs..." just two years earlier. It was the Detroit singer's biggest, and only, major hit. Not even the condoms packaged with her second single, "Gettin' Off on You" could prevent that fate. "I Like What You're Doing to Me" and its raunchy take on one of rap's finest loops, however, has gone down as one of R&B's greatest forgotten hits. —Ernest Baker

Inspiration: Black Moon "How Many MCs..." (1993)

Producer: DJ Evil Dee, Mr. Walt of Da Beatminerz
