Top 10 Most Annoying Featured Artists in Songs

DaWyteNight
These artists have the ability to ruin an otherwise decent song with either their voices or their lyrics, or in many cases both, but seem to be featured on every single modern artist's album for some strange reason.

The Top Ten

1 Chris Brown Chris Brown Christopher Maurice "Chris" Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actor. Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age. He is most well known for his physical assault towards the singer Rihanna in ...read more.

Any time I see this clown's name appear on someone's album it makes me less interested to listen to the album. I just don't see why every rapper thinks this guy's horrible autotuned whiny voice is so appealing to listen to, and I can't understand why every song with him on the hook becomes a hit. - DaWyteNight

One of the most successful artists in songs on the hot 100 as a lead or featured artist with 95 of course if we specifically restrict it to songs that are utter trash he could well be number 1 or 2 I would guess where would you guess.

He sounds exactly the same on every song he's on - ShrekTheGoat

I like him. - Luckys

2 Ty Dolla $ign Ty Dolla $ign Tyrone William Griffin, Jr., known professionally as Ty Dolla Sign, is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, and record producer.

One of the most forgettable featured artists ever - ShrekTheGoat

This guy is terrible and can't sing for crap. He's even worse than Chris Brown at singing and hardly has that big of a following, but still is used when Chris Brown or Jeremih aren't available I guess. - DaWyteNight

HOT GIRL SUMMER he was a good ft in the song in my opinion - Luckys

Who's this? - RobertWisdom

A guy who isn't good enough at singing or rapping to be called either. He was featured in the song Work from Home by Fifth Harmony where he was sadly the most interesting part of the song. - DaWyteNight

3 Cardi B Cardi B Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and more.

Turned Girls Like You from being a bland nothing song to being even worse. I'm glad that I don't listen to the radio and don't really have to listen to any of the songs these artists are featured on. - Powell

Along with French Montana and Gunna, Cardi B is one of the worst rappers when it comes to features. Her worst feature ever was on Lil Nas X's Rodeo where she ruined the song completely. The only decent feature she has ever done was on No Limit. - ShrekTheGoat

Why does she have to be in every song nowadays? - Misfire

Because the music industry is trying to make her into a pop star just like they did with Nicki Minaj, because they know she won't last as a pure "rapper." - DaWyteNight

To be honest, her features can be really good if she puts in enough effort like No Limit, Motorsport and Finesse.But, she does have a lot of bland features as well. - AlphaQ

4 Jeremih Jeremih Jeremih Felton, better known by his mononym Jeremih, is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. In 2009, he signed a record deal with Def Jam Recordings.

He's kinda outdated but his songs are good - BananaBrain

This guy hasn't had a hit in years, but still appears on so many rap songs as a feature, even though his voice is so boring and is just a combination of other singers. - DaWyteNight

This guy is an outdated banana split. - AlphaQ

5 French Montana French Montana Karim Kharbouch, better known by his stage name French Montana, is an American rapper. Born in Morocco, he immigrated to the United States with his family when he was 13 years old.

This man is the king of ruining people's songs with his boring and uninspired verses. He ruined both the Work and No Limit remixes - ShrekTheGoat

6 Future Future

This guy has an even worse voice than Travis Scott but thankfully isn't used as much. - DaWyteNight

Just remember his awful feature on King's Dead - ShrekTheGoat

*chokes* LA DA DI DA SLOB ON ME KNOB - AlphaQ

7 Travis Scott Travis Scott Jacques Webster, better known by his stage name Travis Scott, is an American hip hop recording artist, record producer and musician from Houston, Texas.

Don't know who this is. - RobertWisdom

1 of the top artists in Kanye West's label. I honestly think his music is good but you might not like him if you don't like autotune. - AlphaQ

I like the boi Travis Scott but he's way better as a main artist than a feature, his features in 2019 have been his weakest ones yet. *cough cough* Chopstix *cough cough* - AlphaQ

While Travis makes great music when he is the main artist, his features in 2019 have not been great. Both his features on Chopstix and Celebrate were pretty bad. - ShrekTheGoat

"Yeah! " "Oh my God! " "It's liit! " "Scraight up! " Jesus, just shut up already! I can't stand Travis, if you couldn't tell. - DaWyteNight

8 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, born June 7, 1990 known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

Who'd honestly want to get this untalented nasal woman as a feature? - AlphaQ

I don't know who would actually think that getting Iggy Azalea as a feature is a good idea. - ShrekTheGoat

Who would get her as a feature? - RobertWisdom

9 Kodak Black Kodak Black Bill K. Kapri is an American rapper better known by his stage name Kodak Black. He is noted for his singles "Roll in Peace", "Tunnel Vision", and "No Flockin", as well as his numerous legal issues.

This man did the worst featured verse of all time on A Boogie wit da hoodie's Drowning and ruined the great song with his terrible bars about farting - ShrekTheGoat

"Ion know how to potty"

Kodak is T R A S H. - AlphaQ

10 Quavo Quavo Quavious Keyate Marshall, known professionally as Quavo, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer. He is best known as a member of the rap trio Migos.

Quavo's features aren't the worst thing in the world. Sure he's generic but his features are no way as bad as someone like Cardi B or French Montana. - ShrekTheGoat

Quavo's features are decent, they just need less autotune and they'd be good. - AlphaQ

Another autotune abusing moron. - DaWyteNight

Who is this? - RobertWisdom

The Newcomers

? Bipolar Sunshine

The Contenders

11 Drake Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

His features in 2018 were honestly better than his own songs. - AlphaQ

He's pretty generic, but overall he has saved more songs than ruining them like No Stylist - ShrekTheGoat

Drake is the go-to artist when you are worried that your name alone won't make your song a hit. - DaWyteNight

12 Lil Yachty Lil Yachty Miles Parks McCollum, known professionally as Lil Yachty, is an American rapper, singer and songwriter. Yachty first gained recognition in August 2015 for his singles "One Night" and "Minnesota" from his debut EP Summer Songs. He released his debut mixtape Lil Boat in March 2016.

To be fair, his features are decent and are better than his discography. - AlphaQ

I liked some of his part in iSpy but that's probably biased, overall he's not horrible though - xEliHbkx

He ruined Ice Tray, Night Call and iSpy - ShrekTheGoat

13 Gunna Gunna

Gunna is like Lil Baby from Walmart. While Lil Baby is not a great rapper, Gunna takes it to a whole new level with his boring vocals and lazy lyrics. Every song he features on he sounds exactly the same - ShrekTheGoat

Gunna is a Walmart and watered down Young Thug with no personality, who knows why he's on so many songs when he's so boring. - AlphaQ

Who the heck is this? - RobertWisdom

Damn that monotone flow be hittin’ different

To be dead honest, her features are actually good most go the time, like Monster. Way better than her solo songs. - AlphaQ

There was one point in time where she was featured in almost every song. It was terrible.

To be fair she sometimes has good verses in featured songs - ElSherlock

Oh yeah, she sucks. Can't believe I forgot her. - DaWyteNight

Her only good feature was on The Way I Are an everything else was irritating. - AlphaQ

She was good on The Way I Are by Timbland, but mostly everything else she was on her voice was annoying and squeaky. - DaWyteNight

16 Young Thug Young Thug Jeffrey Lamar Williams, better known by his stage name Young Thug, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. He became known for his commercial debut single 'Stoner', as well as other songs such as 'Check', 'Digits', and 'Best Friend' ...read more.

He's...passable. His new album was decent though. - AlphaQ

Camila was best known for being part of the girl group Fifth Harmony. Fifth Harmony are known for songs like Worth It, Work From Home, All In My Head (Flex), Bo$, and Sledgehammer.

Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning ...read more.

T.I.'s Live Your Life would've been a perfect song if it wasn't for her annoying autotuned vocals. And don't even get me started on that overplayed Love the Way You Lie, that was the most overplayed song of summer 2010. - DaWyteNight

To be honest I thought Love The Way You Lie Was great and I don't really get your hate of Rihanna in general to be honest but each to their own. - Powell

19 Lil Wayne Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American hip hop artist and is often referred to as one of the worst rappers of all time. He was signed to Cash Money Records by Birdman at a young age. Before he became a household name and the artist he is today, he was 1 quarter of the southern rap group The Hot Boys, ...read more.

Icon - Luckys

Compared to everyone else on this list he's not as bad, I mean at least his lyrics make you laugh at how dumb they are. But he was still the most overused feature about 10 years ago. - DaWyteNight

20 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. ...read more.

He isn't featured that much, but at least if he's featured we get somebody other than Chris Brown for once. - DaWyteNight

Justin Bieber hasn't featured recently much, but his verse on the bad guy remix was unbearable - ShrekTheGoat

21 G-Eazy G-Eazy Gerald Earl Gillum, better known by his stage name G-Eazy, is an American rapper, songwriter and record producer from Oakland, California.

G-Eazy is not awful honestly, he just lacks so much character and has no personality or is just uninteresting. - AlphaQ

This guy is just a very bland and uninteresting combination of many other better rappers. - DaWyteNight

G Eazy's verses are not really bad, but they are very forgettable and he lacks personality - ShrekTheGoat

Who the heck is this? - RobertWisdom

22 Normani

She is honestly very underwhelming, the only reason they are putting her in songs is so she can get a big hit. That's why she's credited as one of the main artists rather than "featuring" - DaWyteNight

I kinda like Normani but I think she can do even better. - AlphaQ

What is this? - RobertWisdom

The other girl from Fifth Harmony who went solo and people are trying to make into a big star. - DaWyteNight

23 Young Jeezy Young Jeezy Young Jeezy is a hip hop artist from Atlanta, Georgia. He is most known for his album "Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101", his loud, distinctive rap voice, his song "Put On", his longtime beef with rapper Gucci Mane, and for his tough talk and street lyrics.

His verse on "I'm So Paid" by Akon says it all. - DaWyteNight

24 Tyga Tyga Micheal Ray Stevenson, known by his stage name Tyga, is an American hip hop recording artist. In 2011, Tyga signed a recording contract with Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records.

His verses are so dull, Tyga barely has any personality, the song usually sounds more boring with him. They're better than his songs, which isn't saying very much because his songs are lifeless. - AlphaQ

At least he's more interesting than Drake, at least to me. - DaWyteNight

He adds nothing to any song he features on - ShrekTheGoat

25 Rick Ross Rick Ross William Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross, is an American rapper and entrepreneur.

Most of his guest verses are almost identical, you could probably switch the verses from two songs around and few people would notice the difference. As long as he:
*mentions his cars and how expensive they were
*Talks about drugs that he's never actually sold, and guns he probably doesn't own
*Mentions how he's the biggest boss, without giving any actual evidence as to why
*Grunts
*Has that female voice that says M-M-M-Maybach music in the background after he brags about his wealth and popularity
*Mentions some expensive champagne that none of his listeners can probably even afford
*Shouts out all the delusional women who for some strange reason, find him appealing and attractive

Now you have every Rick Ross guest verse - DaWyteNight

Everything he has ever done is nearly identical. He's awful and seemingly makes the same songs all over again. Why anybody would want this hack on a feature is beyond me. - RobertWisdom

26 Gucci Mane Gucci Mane Radric Delantic Davis, known professionally as Gucci Mane, is an American rapper who has released 12 studio albums and over 70 mixtapes. In 2007, he founded his own label, 1017 Records. He helped to pioneer the hip hop subgenre of trap music alongside fellow Atlanta-based rappers T.I. and Young Jeezy. ...read more.

New Gucci Mane is better than old Gucci Mane, though he doesn't show much personality now. - AlphaQ

I can't stand him. He started trap and now it won't go away. - RobertWisdom

Gucci has gotten so boring since he came home from prison in 2016. - DaWyteNight

He started out in the southern rap duo Playaz Circle with fellow rapper Dolla Boy, before he would become ...read more.

This guy sucks and he refuses to grow up. The guy is in his 40s and keeps making songs like the 16 year olds. - RobertWisdom

He ruined "Don't Bring Me Down" by 8Ball. His lyrics were alright, but his voice was so annoying and he ruined the chill vibe of the song. He was better when he was in Playaz Circle, but even then he had some bad lines. - DaWyteNight

28 Kanye West Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Kanye West is a great artist but he normally doesn't do features. But when he does, most of them are pretty solid. - AlphaQ

Kanye is a great artist. He doesn't normally feature that often recently but he has had some great features like his feature on watch and that part which were great - ShrekTheGoat

Painfully pretentious and corny, plus he didn't even write his own lyrics. - DaWyteNight

30 A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie

31 Chance the Rapper Chance the Rapper Chancelor Jonathan Bennett, known professionally as Chance the Rapper, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer from the West Chatham neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois.

His verse in "I'm the One" was pure cringe. He also tries to sound like Lil Wayne, Kanye West and Young Thug which is an automatic fail. - DaWyteNight

He's become a total sellout. Hot Shower is one of the worst songs of the year - ShrekTheGoat

32 Meek Mill Meek Mill Robert Rihmeek Williams, better known by his stage name, Meek Mill, is an American hip hop recording artist.

He just yells some generic lines about how "street" and "real" he is. A poverty Lil Boosie and Ace Hood in one. He doesn't have Boosie's passion or Ace's flow and lyrics so there is nothing that stands about him other than how loud he is. He even got bodied by Drake of all people. - DaWyteNight

33 Tory Lanez Tory Lanez

He sounds like a 12 year old girl who had her skin pinched. - DaWyteNight
