For #ThrowbackThursday this week, we go back in time and remember the songs that started the careers of some of music’s great artists.

Taylor Swift

Breakout song: Love Story

This song captured every girl’s dream to live like Romeo & Juliette… where they don’t die.

Beyoncé

Nominations: Album of the Year, Best R&B Performance, Best R&B Song
Breakout song: Crazy in Love

Beyoncé set the bar with this song, and its sexy undertones have become standard in all of Queen B’s songs. #Fierce.

Pharrell Williams

Nominations: Album of the Year, Best Solo Pop Performance, Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best Music Video,
Breakout song: Drop it Like It’s Hot feat. Snoop Dogg

When this song came out in 2004, everyone who sang along in the club thought they were the coolest person in the world.

*Pharrell has done a lot of producing and writing for other artists, with one of his biggest songs he produced being ‘Slave for You’ by Britney Spears.

Coldplay

Nominations: Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Music Film
Breakout song: Yellow

This song is called ‘Yellow.’ Coldplay has received 30 GRAMMY nominations overall. The GRAMMY awards are yellow. Coincidence?

Breakout song: My Name Is

This was the introduction to Slim Shady, which answered the prayers of aspiring rappers near and far.
