Yolanda Be Cool and Dcup : We No Speak Americano
It is impossible to listen to this song without humming and singing – or at the very least, tapping a foot – to this infectious melody sung by an Australian duo.
In her debut song, 9-year-old Willow Smith makes us want to whip our hair – even if we don't know why we're doing it. Smith, who is the daughter of actor Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, is like a pint-size Rihanna. The music video (lip bling, anyone) has instantly upped her cool cred among the tween/teen set.
Ke$ha – We R Who We R
This fun song is from Ke$ha's Cannibal album and is currently #1 on iTunes. It has an awesome beat – and a great message. Ke$sha said she wrote the song to encourage teens to embrace those who are different, after the numerous suicides of gay youth.
