19.

“Rise & Fall” by Sting and Craig David


Warner Music UK

Why you probably forgot about it: ‘Cause you haven’t thought of Sting’s “Desert Rose” in 15 years, much less this duet.

20.

“Take Me There” by Mýa, Blackstreet, Blinky Blink, and Mase

22.

“Against All Odds” by Mariah Carey and Westlife


Columbia

26.

“Tilt Ya Head Back” by Nelly and Christina Aguilera


Universal

Why you probably forgot about it: Because it fell into a weird gap between “Dirrty”-era Xtina and Back to Basics–era Christina. It’s one of those songs I listened to once in 2004 and never again.

27.

“I Know What You Want” by Busta Rhymes and Mariah Carey, feat. the Flipmode Squad


Epic

Why you probably forgot about it: Because you have no taste! JKJKJKJK. But really, I do feel bad if you forgot about this Mariah classic!

28.

“Breathe” by Blu Cantrell and Sean Paul


Arista

Why you probably forgot about it: Because Blu is more than a one-hit wonder…she had two hits! And to be honest, “Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!)” overshadowed this track.
