Playlistin': 5 Product-Placement Songs For Black Friday

The day after the day we say thanks is the day we go shopping! Seems kinda funny, doesn't it? We're thankful for all we have, yet we want to get more STUFF! The entertainment industry has been using product placement for years and in the spirit of Black Friday, we wanted to make a playlist of songs that employ some outrageous advertising!

5. Black Eyed Peas - My Humps

"Se7en Jeans, True Religion / I say no, but they keep givin'"

Fergalicious sure likes her jeans! Did you know this song was named #1 in Rolling Stone's list of most annoying songs? The words "my humps" repeated 20 times is just not pleasing to the ear I guess!

4. Nelly - Air Force Ones

"I said "Give me two pairs / I need two pairs" / So I can get to stompin' in my Air Force Ones"

Ah, Air Force Ones, one of the most blatant product-placement songs to date. Despite what you may think though, Nelly isn't exactly a brand-loyalist to Nike; also mentioned in the lyrics are "shell toes" (aka Adidas), Louis Vuitton, and Pumas. Hmmm...

3. Beyonce - Single Ladies

"I put gloss on my lips, a man on my hips / Hold me tighter than my Dereon jeans"

Beyonce is always hawking her line House of Dereon in her songs which seems to have paid off — it's extremely successful!

2. Kanye West and Jay-Z - Otis

"New watch alert, Hublot's / Or the big face Rollie I got two of those"

Hublot and Rollie (aka Rollex) are super-expensive watches. Also mentioned in these lyrics: Benz, Hermes, and Maybach. If you combined Jay and Kanye's songs they'd definitely lead the pack for most brand names mentioned...

1. Busta Rhymes feat. P. Diddy & Pharrell - Pass The Courvoisier Part II

"We gon' tell that brotha (Pass the Courvoisier) / Everybody sing it now (Pass the Courvoisier)"

Busta Rhymes claims that he wasn't compensated prior to putting this song out but after it became a hit, Courvoisier (a French cognac) had a huge surge in popularity. Thanks Busta!
