Bad Boys II (2003; 4 weeks)
Synopsis: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, and Michael Bay punch the clock.
Monster hit: “Shake Ya Tailfeather,” P. Diddy, Nelly, and Murphy Lee
Weirdest moment: Three tracks of dialogue from the film, all on the second half, all around eight seconds long.
Most on-the-nose track: This soundtrack was the first release from the Bad Boy/Universal Records partnership, which Diddy underscores by saying “Bad Boy, baby” a million times on every track.
Can you listen to it all the way through? It is theoretically possible, sure.
What it tells us about 2003: Bad boy, baby.
