The Weeknd teamed up with EDM duo Daft Punk and produced the title track off of his latest effort "Starboy." Their collaboration gave the Weekend another crossover, alternative R&B hit. The song peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Dance Club Songs, but topped the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Zayn scored his first #1 hit as a solo artist with his debut single in early 2016. The former boy band start proved he can stand on his own two feet after a controversial exit from One Direction in 2015. And he's already a crossover success; "Pillowtalk" is not only a dance hit, but it's a slow jam. And it's the 22nd most-popular Hot 100 hit of 2016.
