10. Tamar (feat. Future) – Let Me Know
Single hashtag: #drunkstepdaddyfeature
Tamar sounds great, but having a Future feature is surely bound to ruin any potentially good track.
9. Iggy Azalea (feat. Rita Ora) – Black Widow
Single hashtag: #katycantfixeverything
With #queenofpop Katy Perry co-handling songwriting, Iggy’s “Widow” still didn’t pack that much of a bite.
8. Nicki Minaj – Anaconda
Single hashtag: #flopofpoprap
Uber-obvious sampling aside, Nicki sold herself a bit short by using sex as an attempt to dent the Billboard charts.
7. Meghan Trainor – All About That Bass
Single hashtag: #toostereotypicalanthem
Meghan’s annoying anthem resonated a little too closely with American listeners for me to side with her artistry.
6. Avril Lavinge – Hello Kitty
Single hashtag: #questionableappropriation
Avril’s seemingly innocent “Hello Kitty” anthem took a turn for the worst when portraying particular cultures in its video clip.
5. Keyshia Cole (feat. Juicy J) – Rick James
Single hashtag: #whenitstimetoletgo
Another poor urban comeback attempt from one of my former favorite R&B artists.
4. Jason Derulo (feat. Snoop Dogg) – Wiggle
Single hashtag: #cringeworthymacho
Sex sells may have worked for Jason’s “Wiggle” as a single, but it did nothing for his ill-fated second album.
3. Iggy Azalea (feat. Charli XCX) – Fancy
Single hashtag: #payolafeature
Charli spotlighted on Iggy’s “Fancy”, while her bars failed in the worst way possible.
2. Pitbull (feat. Kesha) – Timber
Single hashtag: #countrysalsafail
Pitbull made a huge impact in 2014 when “Timber” became the first #1 of the year, but that’s as far as it went.
1. Fly Young Red – Throw That Boy P****
Single hashtag: #tradesellout
Exploitation of gay black culture is at an all-time high on Fly Young Red’s NSFW song/video.
