I reciprocate my praise. I went for the RHCP.

Not heard the Ms Jade single - who is she and what sort of thing is it? Also not heard the NZ artists - really should get round to listening to some NZ music.

that last section has a definite R&B/Hip-Hop flava, so could Nelly "Hot In Herre" or another be the #1 single?

I can't believe you put "Rollout" by Ludacris so low - i thought that song would have been in your top 10! Or is that Saturday i'm thinking about.....

He was #21 with Area Codes last year, tho!

OK... here's #20 and #19 on my countdown of my favourite 100 singles of 2002.

#20. My Neck, My Back (Lick It) - KHIA
Kinky Khia's sex-mad single "My Neck..." was the ultimate erm 'sex' of the year. This nasty gal's track was so filled with expletives that it was apparently the most 'altered song for radio' in recent years. Good R&B track with a good beat... and great for a laugh!

#19. No More Drama - MARY J. BLIGE
After the fantastic successes of "Family Affair" and "Dance For Me", hip-hop diva Mary J follows them up with another mid-tempo smash! Stealing the theme from US soap "The Young & The Restless" to remarkable effect, Ms. Blige appealingly teaches us, through rap and power-singing, about life's big dramas. P. Diddy and Mariah Carey briefly appear in the video, which is as insanely irresistible as the song itself.
The quote was from my single review of earlier this year.

#18. For The People - NESIAN MYSTIK
Kiwi lads land their newest track from the 'Polysaturated' album into my Top 20. A laid-back summer tune with some very cool raps and a cruisy hip-hop backbeat. This single is the first of three New Zealand singles inside the Top 20.

#17. Stole - KELLY ROWLAND
Well all 3 DC3 girls' solo singles managed a place in the Top 50, Kelly comes out on top with the teary R&B ballad "Stole". I've really liked this song ever since I heard it and knew it would become a huge hit for her. The video is also very cool... even if Kelly's tears look fake!

#16. Misty Frequencies - CHE FU
Maori artist Che Fu's 2001 comeback with 'The Navigator' album and 'Fade Away' single was a huge success as the single went gold and album went platinum. However, the follow-up track 'Random' barely made a chart impact. Thankfully, he released the album highlight "Misty Frequencies" and returned to the NZ charts. Mid-tempo Kiwi R&B at its finest.

#15. Jenny From The Block - JENNIFER LOPEZ ft. STYLES & JADAKISS
The fact that J.Lo seems to be lying her rotund butt off throughout the entire song is irrelevant because the lead 'This Is Me... Then' single is an upbeat, feel-good hip-hop track that features Jen at her best. One of my fave J.Lo tracks.

Thanks jlo. Nearly at the top 10.

... These quotes are taken from my reviews of the single from this site earlier this year.

#14. Hot In Herre - NELLY
No, it's nothing new and no, the extra 'r' is not a typo - but it is hot! A completely dance-tastic little rap ditty about, erm, taking your clothes off! There's a catchiness here that'll attract new attention to the US rapper and will hopefully propel him back into the upper regions of the chart where his other great song "Ride Wit Me" once resided.
#13. Call Me - TWEET
Despite being a stateside flop, Tweet's Neptunes-produced track still has the potential to be a hit single in the UK. A good beat carried by an effective Indian-influenced backing and a slinky, seductive chorus. This is nuthin' but a groove thang, that's every bit as impressive as her provocative debut.

#12. Lose Yourself - EMINEM
Taken from his upcoming movie debut "8 Mile", Eminem takes a break from dissing his mom to give us the low-down on his character Jimmy's rise to stardom. Starting out with a wicked introduction, it slowly creeps up into a hard-hitting, and dare I say it, inspiring song - surely his strongest lyrically. If you buy one hip-hop single this week, make it Eminem's and lose yourself in the music!
#11. The Middle - JIMMY EAT WORLD
I got hooked onto this easy-going rock track from U.S. rockers Jimmy Eat World from the first time I heard it. A big U.S. hit, the songs not only performed brilliantly it also displays a positive message and being yourself and not conforming to whats cool.


... Don't worry, it'll be finished soon! :roll:
