There is nothing impossible, Getting a hit song from Rock and Hip-hop can be quite challenging looking at the set-up of their respective genres. But, Look no further as there are great hits from both partnerships no one could have given a chance of its success. While We have those who have failed to impress, We have many with unbelievable great songs the World gave the thumbs up for. I have carefully selected Top Four of those hits you can relate with. 

4. One Republic & Timbaland – Apologize

Ryan Tedder vocals here was off the hinges and you don’t expect less from one of the greats in Music production Timbaland. From the beat to the vocals and the flow, You are bound to like the song. Apologize is the debut single written by OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder for OneRepublic’s debut album Dreaming Out Loud. The song was a major hit internationally, reaching number one in 16 countries, including Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Sweden, Turkey, and the Netherlands, as well as staying at number one for eight consecutive weeks on the Billboard Pop 100 chart. The song peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, staying in the top-10 for 25 weeks, and spent 13 weeks at number one in Canada. Timbaland remixed the song for his second studio album, Shock Value (2007). This version, also produced by Greg Wells, included an extra line of percussion, New backing vocals, and added sound samples, In addition to sound mixing and various other minor changes. The guitar solo after the second verse was omitted, completing its transformation to a more R&B style to fit with Shock Value. When the remix debuted, on the back of the strong Timbaland name, radio outlets announced the artist for the song as “Timbaland” or “Timbaland with OneRepublic”. Here is the twist, The song became more popular with the remix.

3. Linkin Park & Busta Rhymes – We made it

Yes! They made it. The group Linkin Park brought a new style of rock music that fits right with the millennium era as it was widely accepted, especially from the album “Meteora”. It’s got hits back to back. Now, back to Busta before I derail the subject matter. How do you fuse Rock and Rap music together?. This group started it with Mike Shinoda throwing in the rap to some of their tracks and obviously a lot of has ended up as good songs. Busta Rhymes, of course, is a renowned great in the game of Rap music in that time and this partnership did not disappoint. The song debuted at number 14 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Rhymes’ 12th and Linkin Park’s 10th top 20 hits in the United Kingdom. The single peaked at number 10 and remained there after the physical release. The single also had significant success in Germany peaking at number 11 on the German Singles Chart.

2. Linkin Park and Jay-Z – Encore

“Thank you Thank you, you’re far too kind”. Does that line ring a bell?. Yeah, That’s Jay-Z flowing. Linkin Park again on this one combined with Jay-Z to make the Hit Track. It was released as a single on December 13, 2004, by Warner Bros., Machine Shop, Def Jam, and Roc-A-Fella Records. The song is a mash-up combining lyrics from Linkin Park’s “Numb” and “Encore” by Jay-Z, both released in 2003. In the United States, “Numb/Encore” peaked at number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, where “Numb” had charted higher at number 11. However, “Numb/Encore” didn’t manage to have much airplay on modern rock stations, barely hitting the chart at number 40. “Numb/Encore” won Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the Grammy Awards of 2006.

1. Mary J. Blige and U2 – One

U2 are like the Fine Wine of Rock Music to me based on their achievements. They have been around for a while and recorded repeated success over the years. When I first heard the Original track by U2, I said to myself what could be better because its reception was awesome and along came the awards and chart-topping. The song can be compared to the all-star song “We are the World”. But then something happened in 2006. Mary J. Blige popped up in. After being invited to join the group on stage at their New York gig in 2005, Blige performed the track with U2 and received a standing ovation. The song was then recorded featuring Blige on lead vocals, with Bono supplying additional vocals and the band performing the music. It was released on 3 April 2006, The song was a major commercial success in Europe, reaching number two in Ireland and the United Kingdom and topping the Norwegian Singles Chart for six weeks.

New entrant AECO Energy launches business innovation to deliver ‘last mile of value chain’ to Singapore’s maturing open electricity market

  • AECO Energy announces the launch of its operations in Singapore to provide innovation to the open electricity market for businesses with generation 2.0 of its technology and service offerings.
  • The company will introduce three solutions as part of its initial portfolio, customisable to specific business needs.

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 13 April 2021 - AECO Energy, a new entrant to Singapore's electricity sector, has today announced the launch of its operations. AECO Energy will be the first-of-its kind energy technology and services company aimed at innovating customer-centric offerings in electricity and renewable energy markets.

With over 12 years of experience in delivering open market electricity services and solutions to businesses in Australia under the Power Choice brand, AECO Energy is bringing its second generation of services and technology to Singapore for the first time. AECO's second generation delivers on two major offerings.

Firstly, AECO delivers the 'last mile' of value in Singapore Open Electricity Market (OEM) value chain by providing innovative services to assist businesses to manage, plan and make better buying decisions.

AECO is all about enabling increased profits for businesses. AECO has a customer-centric mission to use its low-cost proven technology and expert-led services to enable better business decisions within a complex electricity market with multiple providers and opaque medium- to long-term pricing information. This comes against the backdrop of Singapore's maturing OEM, which gives businesses and consumers the autonomy to buy and choose their electricity providers - the freedom to choose.

AECO Energy's technology platform, MarketPro™ with its unique, electricity futures market simulator Rate Watch™, delivers business and electricity efficiency and empowers businesses through relevant and timely pricing information, while also helping Singapore businesses make better buying decisions via automated tenders and reverse auctions. Moreover, for businesses who do not have the capability and capacity to manage and purchase its own electricity, AECO Energy Portfolio™ delivers scalable buying power with a fully-managed contract management and purchasing aggregation service for small, medium and large businesses.

Alan Jones, CEO, Chairman & Founder, AECO Energy, said: "We are incredibly excited and humbled to be joining Singapore's dynamic energy scene with our low-cost, high-value products and services. Our mission is clear: just like Amazon is revolutionising the 'last mile' of product supply chains with its same day delivery, we are also delivering the 'last mile' of the value chain in Singapore's OEM that enables more businesses better purchasing decisions, more business profitability and growing all of Singapore's economy."

Secondly, with SGX-listed entities, enterprises and multinational corporations (MNCs)' increasing emphasis on sustainability, AECO (through its SustainPro™ offering) will bring for the first-time in Singapore the benefit of AECO's direct relationship with generators of International Renewable Certificates (I-REC). This enables Southeast Asian markets the benefit of medium- to long-term low-cost and structured REC solutions to meet renewable energy targets and sustainability goals. This translates to more profits by providing more predictable costs for businesses in meeting their sustainability and renewable energy goals.

"As a specialised company, unburdened with corporate overheads and distractions from Singapore's local market participants, we can offer companies who are based anywhere in Southeast Asia, sustainability and renewable energy solutions that span markets and countries at a lower and more predictable price. We are honoured to play our part to bring sustainability and increased renewable energy throughout the world and to do so while benefiting our customers' cost structures," continued Mr. Jones.

AECO Energy is introducing three offerings as part of its electricity management solutions:

  • MarketPro™: Businesses can optimise costs and seize market opportunities with exclusive access to customised market price information through AECO Energy's integrated online procurement and management platform equipped with Rate Watch™, a market simulation and automated procurement technology from as low as SGD $149 per month.
  • Portfolio™: Businesses get exclusive access to economies of scale with better buying power through professional and expert-managed energy procurement portfolios overseen by AECO Energy experts. This allows enterprises to focus on their core business while AECO Energy experts will fully-manage their electricity contracts and make better buying decisions on their behalf from as low as an additional SGD $74 per month.
  • SustainPro™: SustainPro focuses on helping businesses meet their sustainability goals at the lowest cost. AECO Energy offers lower costs on the procurement of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and tailored REC supply solutions designed to meet transition needs towards a more sustainable business.

"With the understanding that business needs are unique for every organisation, our energy experts will work closely with customers here in Singapore to help them reduce costs, drive efficiency and make better buying decisions. By providing technology-enabled, insights-driven energy technology solutions, we want to create a profound impact on our customers' businesses to better position them for sustainable growth in the long-term," concluded Alan.
