“T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)” by will.i.am, Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez

For those who are goggling at that title, yes, Mick Jagger, legendary frontman of the Rolling Stones, made an appearance on a song by two of the most notorious no-talents in modern Pop music during his early-2010s career resurgence. It’s not a sample, either…Jagger recorded his verse specifically for this song. Why, Mick, why? You’re one of the greatest Rock singers of all time, a literal music God…why would you associate yourself with an incompetent idiot like Will.i.am or an untalented has-been like Lopez? Well, as you’d expect, Jagger’s verse is the only good thing about this song, which otherwise sounds exactly like “Scream and Shout” with a different washed-up pop star, but his involvement is still one of the saddest things to happen in pop music in the last few years.

Verdict: Bad.
