Haaaaaaappy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday…

Nah, son. That ain’t it! If you’re looking to celebrate your birthday right this year, the last thing you should be singing is a song that was originally conceived more than 100 years ago. In fact, why would you even want to sing that song when there are literally dozens and dozens of other “Birthday” songs that you could sing? For instance, rather than putting on your party hat and breaking out into “Happy Birthday To You,” why not throw on 2 Chainz‘ new single, “Birthday Song,” featuring Kanye West? We guarantee you’ll have a hell of a lot more fun doing that than you would listening to your family sing the tired old “birthday song” that you’ve been forced to listen to for years now.

2 Chainz isn’t the only one bringing the birthday heat, either. Over the course of the last decade or so, there have been plenty of other rap and R&B artists who have recorded “birthday” songs, too. So, in honor of 2 Chainz’ latest single, we decided to put together a list of The 10 Best “Birthday” Songs In Recent History. Cut yourself a piece of cake and dig in.
