It's true. "Girls Love Beyonce." But that doesn't mean we can't love Rihanna either.

When Beyoncé dropped the dual single "Bow Down/I Been On," the leading track caused so much uproar that I feel the homage she paid to Houston on "I Been On" almost went overlooked.
Thankfully, Houston's all-stars Bun B, Lil Keke, Wille D, Slim Thug, Scarface and Z-Ro reprised the screwed up production to present the remix, which I'm sure will get a grip of spins tonight in the South. Listen to the official Houston remix of "I Been On" below, and hit the comments with your thoughts!
I wish Trae had a verse on this though!

French Montana ft. Nicki Minaj, Wyclef Jean, Edley Shine & Elephant Man - "Freaks" (DJ Suss One Remix)
French Montana's "Freaks" is undoubtedly a hit record, but when I listen to it I can't help but think that it's missing a key reggae element. Thankfully DJ Suss One recruited producer JButtah and respected artists of the genre (Wyclef, Edley Shine and Elephant Man) to refix "Freaks" allowing Nicki Minaj's verse to lead the way.

DJ Wally Sparks, Big K.R.I.T.'s right hand man, has joined forces with Big Sant's DJ Dub Floyd to form the Legion Of Doom as they blend two landmark records from Atlanta-- the Outkast classic "Spottieottiedopaliscious" and Ca$h Out's hit single "Cashin' Out."

Cali producer Woody continues his streak of remix albums as he takes on Outkast's most beloved tracks and adds his signature style to "B.o.B," "ATLiens," "International Players Anthem," and more.
"OutKast is the greatest duo in music. Ever. Since they are not getting back together anytime soon, I wanted to shed new light on some of my favorite songs and give people some new Kast to bump. Hey @BigBoi, you checking this shit out?" - WoodysProduce

Anthem has been hard at work producing for the likes of CyHi The Prynce, A.Dd+ and more, but he's really been on a roll reworking hits like Kendrick Lamar's "Swimming Pools," Big Sean's "Guap," and Rihanna's "Pour It Up."
Check out my favorite remix from the Birmingham bred beatsmith below, as he twists B.o.B's "Out Of My Mind" even deeper into the twilight zone.

X/Coke was by far one of the best projects of 2012, and thankfully for us the sounds of Cheri Coke and MeLo-X will have new life as their remix EP is set to drop this month. Listen below as remix magician and producer Sango put his spin on "The Interlude."

Even if you think you've never heard of Mikky Ekko, chances are you've sung along to "Stay" on Rihanna's latest album Unapologetic. His solo repertoire, however, is more impressive than the RiRi feature and the amount of remixes of his Clams Casino produced "Pull Me Down" is proof of that.
If I had to spotlight one remix in particular--which I am--, the Nashville musician's single sounds best in the hands of Odd Future duo The Internet. Enjoy Syd The Kid and Matt Martian's remix of "Pull Me Down" below, and be sure to check out their original tracks HERE.

It seems as if Woody is taking on all of the greats as he plans to drop his Outkast remix mixtape on February 11, following the success of his Biggie and Kanye remix projects. "B.O.B.," a Stankonia classic known for its high energy, gets the Woody treatment and is transformed into a track with more of a down home southern feel to it.
Hit the comments with your thoughts, and be sure to cop the OutKast x WoodysProduce Remixtape when it hits the net 2.11.13.

The best mashups are the ones that come from left field. Who would've thought that 2 Chainz and Fleetwood Mac together could create something this dope? Scott Melker, that's who.
Fleetwood Mac is one of the greatest bands ever. Producers rarely remix Fleetwood Mac. Why you ask? Most remixers and mashup artists focus solely on what is “hot” now – you know, pop songs and EDM “hits.” The Melker Project wanted to buck the trend and introduce mashup fans to some of the timeless classics that often go untouched in remix culture. You know, GOOD songs.
“Skeetwood Mac” is the first in a series of EPs being released by The Melker Project, each focusing on a different classic artist. As the name implies, this EP is comprised of five Fleetwood Mac songs, each mashed up with Hip Hop and R&B standards.
This track features the Fleetwood Mac classic "The Chain" mixed with a 2 Chainz instrumental and 3 2 Chainz verses. "The (2) Chain (z)." Clever, right?
Just because it's amazing, hit the jump to listen to The Melker Project 2, a 52 minute mix in which Melker uses over 200 tracks for our attention deficient enjoyment.

Collectively known as TNGHT, producers Hudson Mohawke and Lunice put out one of the best projects of 2012 with their EP. Many stars have taken notice, as Hudson recently signed a production deal with Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music and Lunice received major props from Rick Ross for his work with Rockie Fresh.
During Lunice's mix on BBC's 1XTRA radio show, he debuted TNGHT's latest work, a remix of G.O.O.D.'s smash "Clique." Enjoy the radio rip below, and hit the jump to check out the entire mix.
Yeah, yeah. I know. The Falcons didn't pull out the W yesterday.
Regardless, one thing I've learned since moving down here is that everyone from the A are all graduates of the Lil Jon School of Rep Yo City University. At the top of his class is CyHi The Prynce who has been busy prepping his follow up to last summer's mixtape The Ivy League Club.
Check out his remix to the project's standout track "A-Town" (produced by my homie Anthem), which will live on his January 29th release, Ivy League: Kick Back. This remix includes a brand new verse from CyHi and a new feature from his G.O.O.D. brother 2 Chainz. Stream the track below via Def Jam, which also features guest spots from B.o.B and Travis Porter.

As bad as I hope that Bone Thugs- N-Harmony come out with a new album this year, I'm not holding my breath. Instead, I'll be enjoying this rework of Creepin on ah Come Up's "Foe tha Love of $" by Boston DJ-producer Durkin. You should too.

Yuna's self-titled U.S. debut is one of my best purchases of the year. I love EVERY track on the album, especially the Pharrell produced "Live Your Life." The homie MeLo-X puts his Schwaza on Yuna's hit single for a "Motherland God" remix that should find its way into your iTunes.

GUE's favorite producer Nubbz received an overwhelmingly positive response when he released his remix of Childish Gambino's "Firefly," and I think he's done it again with this one. This time, Nubbz transforms Freddie Gibbs and MadLib's "Terrorist" and puts a new spin on the Shame EP standout.
