4. Brandy – “How High”

Brandy‘s alter ego Brand Nu made a rare appearance on the previously unreleased tune “How High.” The cut didn’t make her album “Two Eleven,” but is just as refreshing as her singles “Wildest Dreams” or “Put It Down.” “We’re unbreakable, inseparable,” sings Brandy followed by a verse from Brand Nu.

5. Mary J. Blige – Enough Cryin ft. Brook Lynn
