                • The 100 Greatest Songs of 2000: Staff Picks

                  84. Beenie Man feat. Mya, "Girls Dem Sugar" (No. 54, Hot 100)

                  Beenie Man already broke through the American market two years prior with the rugged dancehall crossover "Who Am I (Sim Simma).” But as he got more comfortable stateside, he decided to expand his sonic boundaries. And who better to help execute than The Neptunes? Dissecting a portion of “Who Am I,” the experimental duo transformed the original into a glossy, scratch-heavy club anthem that was elevated by Mýa’s dreamy "If I could be your girl...." coos. -- B.G.

                  56. Mya, "Case of the Ex (Whatcha Gonna Do)" (No. 2, Hot 100)

                  Mýa was always good for masking petty digs in sweet tunes (see 1998’s “Movin’ On”), but she entered her final form with the sharp-tongued “Case of the Ex.” Our R&B darling was completely fed up with her man communicating with a past fling -- “There's no need to reminisce 'bout the past/ Obviously, cause that s--t did not last” -- and Tricky Stewart’s spiny production drove her frustration over the edge. And the ladies related: by Y2K’s end, “Case of the Ex” leaped to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. -- B.G.

                  32. Mya, "How You Gonna Tell Me" (Fear of Flying)

                  Over a guitar riff that sounds like it's struggling to snake its way around the beat fast enough, "How You Gonna Tell Me" offers a similarly wound-up sounding-off against folks trying to give Mya unsolicited advice, scoffing: "You 'bout to lose your house and your IQ... but you know how to fix my thang." Bad advice may have also contributed to this song not being released as a single off the R&B star's sophomore album -- produced by turn-of-the-century gold-spinners Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs and Kandi Burruss, "Tell Me" would've made a much likelier hit than the tepid "Best of Me." -- A.U.

                                  • Oooh I do love me a surprise drop!

                                    I already had just the bonus tracks along with the Sovereign remix of Case of the Ex but it's great that everyone can hear them now.
