Superfly
Ai wo Komete Hanataba wo

Superfly bust onto the single scene this year with this rock song about the correct color of flowers but even more amazing were her vocals, strong and resonant, that gains it such a high ranking on this list.

BoA
Eat You Up

BoA’s first English single was a club-thumping dance-fest that gave gluttony the irredescent sheen of dance pop.

Britney Spears
Circus

It was so nice to have Britney back this year and [Circus] brought to mind the days of impeccably executed choreography and bone rattling club music. It certainly gained its place in the upper echelon of dance this year.

Jennifer Hudson sang her face off.
