Pioneering hip-hop single "The Body Rock" is best known as a source for Mariah Carey's "Honey" instrumental, but SWV flipped it a few years earlier on the Wu-Tang-assisted remix to their hit, "Anything." The record was a smaller success compared to most of what SWV was releasing at the time—No. 1 hits—but still reached No. 4 on the R&B charts and played a big role in R&B's burgeoning fascination with hip-hop. —Ernest Baker

Inspiration: Treacherous Three "The Body Rock" (1980)
