It could be the heavy kick drum, or the way the ivories are tickled—a sound originally lifted from Aretha Franklin's "Young, Gifted and Black"—but Blackstreet certainly made the right choice in pairing "Physical Thing" with Heavy D & The Boyz's "Yes Y'all." The smooth, steady hip-hop beat was originally released as Gang Starr's "'92 Interlude" and perfectly mimics the explicit lyrics in "Physical Thing": "I wanna love you, hold you, squeeze you, please you/Let me do my thing tonight." The lyrics are the come on, and the beat is their wingman. It's a flawless match-up that you're likely to fall for immediately. —Alysa Lechner
