Ke$ha, who has been nominated for three Grammy awards, is known for her sing-song rap style in songs such as "Tik Tok" and "Your Love is My Drug." After beginning her music career in 2006, her breakthrough came in early 2009 after appearing on Flo Rida's No. 1 single, "Right Round." Her debut single, "TiK ToK," was later released in October, preceding the release of her debut album, "Animal," in 2010.
Her music has appeared in a variety of media, including "Backstabber" and "Chain Reaction" in The Hills. She also sang background vocals for Britney Spears' song "Lace and Leather," appeared in the video for Katy Perry's single, "I Kissed a Girl," and co-wrote the title song for Miley Cyrus' "The Time of Our Lives" EP.
Hip-hop artist B.o.B. is known for songs including "Airplanes" and "Magic." His first single for Atlantic, "Haterz Everywhere," reached the Top Five of Billboard's Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop singles chart.
He was named "artist to watch" by publications like XXL, Spin and MTV. His second single, "Grip Your Body," guested by British soul siren Amy Winehouse, also fared well.
Earlier this year, B.o.B topped the charts with "Nothin' on You" and reached No. 2 with "Airplanes," the latter song featuring special guest Hayley Williams of Paramore.
