Dance-pop collaboration of the year: 'Cheap Thrills' or 'Side to Side'?
It's the end of the year! And throughout December, we're facing-off the best songs, albums, movies, TV shows, comic books, video games, sports, pro athletes and entertainers of 2016. The "Best of 2016" is chosen by a combination of popularity, impact, acclaim, rankings and/or amount sold. But ultimately, we want you to let us know who and what from 2016 won the year in each category.
While Sia called on Sean Paul, Ariana called on Nicki—They produced two of the biggest reggae-flavored pop hits ever. But which collaboration made us dance and groove more in 2016?
And don't forget to cast your vote in these other end of year debates:
Sia scored her first #1 Billboard Hot 100 hit with "Cheap Thrills." Sean Paul made a huge return to the top of the pop chart since "Temperature" topped in 2006. The hit blends reggae, dance and synthpop music. "Cheap Thrills" is Billboard's 11th greatest song of the year.
Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj collaborated along with Jessie J on 2014's "Bang Bang." It only makes sense they would replicate their success together with 2016's "Side to Side." And as a result, they created a super-sexy, reggae-fused pop song. The hit is ranked at 22 on Rolling Stone's "50 Best Songs of 2016" list.
