ONTD Original: Forgotten Jams By Your Favs

Work It Out


Before releasing her debut album Dangerously in Love (2003), Beyoncé released the lead single from Austin Powers in Goldmember. Produced by the Neptunes, it failed to become a big hit on the Billboard 100 but did hit number one on Billboard 's Hot Dance Club Songs.

Stolen Moments


Off of her hit Unplugged (2005) album which sold over 2.5 million albums, Stolen Moments was one of the few new (and best)songs performed along with Unbreakable.

Impossible


Along with Twista and Keyshia Cole, Kanye West released the song for Mission: Impossible III (2005). However, the single does not appear on the soundtrack but does play during the end credits of the movie.

Girl's Best Friend


Produced single by Swiss Beats, the 1999 single Girl's Best Friend was lead single off of the Blue Streak soundtrack along with being a hidden track off of Jay-Z’s Vol. 3... Life and Times of S. Carter (1999). Its highest peak on the Billboard Hot 100 was at 52.

Always Be My Baby


Overshadowed by the (fantastic) original, the remix also known as Always Be My Baby (Mr. Dupri Mix) (1996), featured Da Brat and Xscape.

Think of You


This jam came off of Usher’s self-titled debut album Usher (1994). Written by Faith Evans and Donell Jones, the song charted on the Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at # 7 and #58 on the Billboard Hot 100.

I'm Lovin' It


A Neptunes produced single from his concert DVD Justin Timberlake: Live from London (2003), it first was a jingle for McDonalds.
