Album: N/A
Producer: Beyoncé, Willy William

It goes like this: Bengali composer Akassh Sen and singer Dilshad Nahar Kona team up for a song called "Heila Duila Nach" that starts with a crazy, processed five-note vocal melody. Willy Williams borrows the riff for "Voodoo Song." Then J Balvin brings Williams on board for his own spin on the idea, "Mi Gente." And then the storm, both literal and metaphorical. Beyoncé herself hops on the song for a surprise remix (of course), with the proceeds used to help victims of natural disasters. And the whole time, Kona's five notes kept ringing in our collective heads. —Shawn Setaro
