Willow Smith featuring Nicki Minaj: “Fireball”

This time last year, everyone was wondering whether Minaj was too potty-mouthed and threatening to be a mainstream star. Now she’s second position on a Smith party tune.

Jolly Orchestra: “Egberun Buso”

The 100-track set “Opika Pende” collates never-before-released African recordings from the early to mid-20th century, such as this Nigerian high-life track, rescued from a 78.

Hot as Sun featuring Freddie Gibbs: “Come Come” (Kickdrums remix)

Rappers and indie rockers play nice on this psych-pop-goes-gangsta makeover of the girl-girl duo Hot as Sun’s 2010 track.

Jackie Chain featuring Bun B: “Parked Outside”

The maker of the great “Rollin’” returns with another hook-infested banger, produced by (and co-starring) Big K.R.I.T.

Gotye: “Somebody That I Used to Know” (various remixes)

The Belgian-Australian singer-songwriter’s breakout track is so gorgeous, so un-mess-up-able, we haven’t heard a bad remix yet.
