“Yo” – Chris Brown
It may be his album F.A.M.E. that is nominated for “Best R&B Album,” but Chris Brown has always had Grammy-worthy music. This song has been stuck in girls' heads it first came out in 2005.

And if you take one listen to this empowering jam, then you’ll know exactly why.

“Say My Name” – Destiny’s Child
Kelly Rowland is nominated in the Best Rap/Song Collaboration for her song “Motivation” with Lil Wayne, but she wasn’t always a solo artist. She got her start with the girl group Destiny’s Child with another singer you may have heard of, Beyoncé or something…anyway, check out this song as a reminder that Kelly has been in the game for a while now and plans on keeping it that way.
“Lift Off (feat. Beyoncé)” – Kanye West and Jay-Z
When word first got out that Jay-Z and Kanye West were collaborating on an entire album together, we knew it was going to blow our minds. They definitely didn’t disappoint when the time came, and their Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album goes to show that. Check this song out as a little taste of why they were nominated.
