Here at 2NIPs, what we love about mainstream music isn't really the singer, but the team working behind the stage to present the whole package. Lets face it, anyone can have a no. 1 single with the right producers working behind them. That being said, obviously if the singer has talent and is obviously working hard they get some additional point. So with the help of our good friend Angelina up there, lets go through the people who have polished up some of the best music of 2010. One more thing, where are my women producers?! come on now!

New: Wynter Gordon - Holla at Ur Girl (prod. The-Dream & Tricky Stewart)

If you think haven't heard of Wynter Gordon, you are probably wrong. She is the co-wrote and was featured in Flo-rida's, Eifel 65 sampling track,"Sugar." Since, she's been trying to make a name for herself in the music industry. she has written for Mary J Blige Danity Kane, and Jennifer Lopez, and has recently been feature on a number of euro pop songs. But what has gotten my attnetion is a recently surfaced track produced by one of my favorite duo's, The-Dream and Tricky Stewart, called "Holla at Ur Girl"

download "holla at Ur Girl" and her first official single produced by David Guetta, "Dirty Talk," beyond the break.

NEW: Wiz Kalifa - Black and Yellow (G-Mix ft Snoop Dog, Juicy J, & T-Pain)

Here's the official remix to Wiz Kalifa's Black & Yellow. I posted a couple unofficial remixes the other day, take a look. Personally they are all better than this one.

NEW: Lil Wayne - "6 Foot 7 Foot (ft. Corey Gunz)"

the first single to arrive from Lil Wayne's next album, Tha Carter IV. A compliment to A Milli, the Bangladesh produced, 6 Foot 7 Foot, samples everyone's favorite song from Beetlejuice, Harry Belafonte's "Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)." Need a few more listens to know weather this is something memorable on its own. Something tells me it wont. A Milli was so good because it was something completely different.


NEW VIDEO: Diddy-Dirty Money - "Ass On The Floor (ft. Swizz Beats)"

NEW: Keri Hilson - Toy Soldier

I guess Keri decided to class it up and release my most anticipated track from her sophomore album, No Boys Allowed (dec. 21). Another hot track produced by polow & written by the hottest writer out now, Ester Dean. Dean also wrote to best of Rhianna's new album("Fading", "What's My Name", "Complicated"), Ciara's "Turn it up (ft. Usher)", and Katy Perry's "Fireworks".

What's The Sample: Kanye West - Devil In A New Dress
