Here’s a look back at the best hip hop songs of 2010 by women in honor of the luscious ladies that rocked the Billboard charts this year. So relive some of the best songs of 2010 and add a “Pop!” to your hip hop with the wonderful women on this list whose music we found so hard to resist:
“What’s My Name?” by Rihanna featuring Drake – I doubt that Drake would make a moniker mistake while singing with this sexy siren who can really rock her fiery locks. However, Rihanna reminds guys that they’ve got to know the answer to this very important question when spending some intimate time with their women in one of the hottest hip hop songs of 2010 for getting up close and personal to.
“Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready)” by Alicia Keys – One of the sexiest women in hip hop spent most of 2010 looking like she was about to pop, but becoming a mom didn’t make Alicia Keys’ career stop. In another of the sexiest songs of 2010, she lets her lover know that she’s ready to take a big step in their relationship, so this is one of the best tracks for those looking to take a leap of faith and to never look back.
“Everything to Me” by Monica – Monica’s amazing voice will make the men melt, so this is one of the hip hop songs of 2010 women definitely need to dedicate to the deserving guys they can’t stand to have leave their sides.
“It Kills Me” by Melanie Fiona – This is one of the best hip hop songs of 2010 about the trouble women find themselves in when they fall for the wrong men. Melanie’s melody tells the story of a woman who knows that her man is a cheat, but she loves him too much to leave. Unfortunately, she never finds an easy solution to the problem, offering little solace to those in similar situations.
“Your Love” by Nicki Minaj – The pink princess brings us one of the most playful hip hop songs of 2010 by women, a sweet shot of liquefied candy that will give you a real sugar rush. Just be forewarned: “Your Love” is extremely addicting, and diehard Nicki fans will likely never be able to get enough.
“Right Thru Me” by Nicki Minaj – Nicki Minaj is far from transparent with her colorful and crazy outfits, but she sings about a guy that can see right through it all in one of her more serious songs of 2010. (Let this song be a lesson to all the women out there: don’t get in a relationship with a guy who knows your hand before you play it; it’ll drive you crazy).
“Whip my Hair” by Willow Smith – One of the youngest women in hip hop brought us one of the best songs of 2010, an addicting ode to using a neglected body part when you dance: your neck (just don’t give yourself whiplash trying to imitate her dance moves).
“Love All Over Me” by Monica – Let Monica’s voice shower your ears with love again in another of her hit songs of 2010. And if you’ve tripped and fell for a guy, landing in a puddle of love, don’t wash it off; celebrate that love stain along with Monica.
“Holding You Down (Goin in Cirlces)” by Jazmine Sullivan – Another of the best hip songs of 2010 by women will have you dancing in circles. But while it’s fine to get a little disoriented while dancing to this tune, take a lesson away from it and don’t let some dude make you dizzy.
“Ride” by Ciara featuring Ludacris – One of the sexiest women of hip hop teams up with a guy who knows how to sing about sex for a track that will have the dance floor packed. So if you’re looking for a bump and grind that will blow your mind, you better find a partner for this one.
“Bittersweet” by Fantasia – 2010 has been a bittersweet year for Fantasia, and she does her best to convey the good and bad in another of the best slow and smooth hip hop songs of 2010 by women.
“Rude Boy” by Rihanna – Rihanna has run across a few rude boys in her day, so it’s surprising to hear that she hasn’t learned her lesson and is calling out for another to come her way. But there’s no denying this is one of the most popular hip hop songs of 2010 by women, so it reluctantly lands on this list.
“I Am” by Mary J. Blige – With “I Am”, Mary J. Blige proves that she is still one of the hottest women in hip hop. It’s the perfect song for telling your guy that there’s no point in even trying to find someone better (and it’s his loss if he does).
“Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart”by Alicia Keys – Sleeping with a broken heart is one of the hardest things to do, but capturing that pain in song is almost just as hard. However, Alicia Keys adequately manages to portray that angst with her amazing vocals.
“Only Girl in the World” by Rihanna – Rihanna doles out some more great relationship advice in another of her best hip hop songs of 2010. With the way women compare themselves to other women all the time, if you can make her feel like the only girl in the world, you’re definitely doing something right.
So from sexy hip hop songs that will leave you wanting to dance to those about the painful side of romance, the women of hip hop have delivered some 2010 tracks that make it worth taking a look back.
