In “Beautiful Liar,” Beyonce teams up with another pop star, Shakira. The song features the two pop divas lamenting over a beautiful Lothario.
For “Telephone,” Lady Gaga gets a hand from Beyonce. The two pop singers pound out the lyrics to this gritty dance song that celebrates female independence and bravado.

“Just Dance” started the whole Lady Gaga phenomenon and put Gaga on the international radar.
7. “Don’t Stop the Music”
Rihanna has a string of dance hits to her name. “Don’t Stop the Music” makes the list due to its heavy-handed bass line and foot stomping beat. Any true Michael Jackson fan should recognize Rihanna’s sampling of one of his hit songs. For those who do not recognize MJ’s hit song–“Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” –the hint is in the chorus.
Christina Aguilera is beyond a doubt one of the best singers of her generation. Although the song, “Dirrty,” is a dance song, it still highlights Aguilera’s vocal prowess.

Sean “P. Diddy” Combs’ protege, Kesha, holds her own in the highly competitive pop world. Besides the catchy chorus, “Tik Tok” is a huge hit due Kesha’s bad girl attitude and vocals.
