4. A$AP Ferg f/ A$AP Rocky "Shabba"
Producer: Marvel Alexander & Snugsworth
Album: Trap Lord
A$AP Ferg was under a lot of pressure this summer. His song "Work" became a hit, breaking out of the underground and onto radio stations and nightclubs across the nation. But Ferg had yet to prove that he could replicate the success. "Work," after all, had been released almost a year ago. Was the self-crowned Trap Lord a one-hit wonder?
Ferg put any doubts to rest by putting out "Shabba." The song's beat prominently features a simple xylophone throughout, with sirens periodically blaring, a call to get on the dance floor. A$AP Rocky's charisma shines during his guest verse. But the real power rests in the irresistible hook. Seriously, try to restrain yourself from chanting the legendary dancehall artist's name when this comes on at the party. You can't. —Dharmic X
