submeat's top 100 tracks of 2003: songs to download and love

#92 "Rain On Me," Ashanti (Murder Inc./Def Jam)
It all comes down to the incredibly sad, mournful, and dramatic Isaac Hayes sample (from his Godlike version of "Walk On By") which makes this an incredibly sad, mournful, and dramatic single, the finest from Murder Inc.'s princess yet. Her strong voice simultaneously paired with her lack of a distinct personality are both advantages here: this is everyone's song and no one's, at once.
