5. Twista - "Slow Jamz"
Even a heat wave seems less cruel thanks to the cruising-the-street soul vibe of "Slow Jamz."
4. Trick Daddy - "Let's Go"
Trick Daddy, Twista, Lil Jon, an arena-ready beat powered by a synthesizer shower. I dare you to keep your hands down.
3. Juvenile - "Slow Motion"
A sizzling skillet of summer groove, greased by Juvie's smooth flow.
2. Snoop Dogg - "Drop It Like It's Hot"
Snoop dropped this one in the hovering humidity of '04 and watched it sit on No.1 for three weeks. His first No.1 song ever is also one of his hottest. Maybe it's the drums.
1. Terror Squad (ft. Fat Joe & Remy Ma) - "Lean Back"
This bouncy trifle went down easy no matter what kind of dance you were doing in the club.
