Willow Smith: Whip My Hair

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.

Kanye West is an innovative rapper/singer/producer, while Jay-Z is a rap mogul – and together they make magic with their first song, Monster, off their duet mini album, Watch the Throne.
