These ringtones say…‘I’M SEXY!’
“My Humps,” Black Eyed Peas. A slutty, strutting ode to one’s own body parts. 90 weeks on the chart and counting.
“This Is Why I’m Hot,” by MIMS. The title couldn’t make its message any plainer. Small wonder it’s the No. 1 title of the year, with sales of over 1 million.
“Don’t Cha,” Pussycat Dolls. A proclamation that the cell-phone owner is sexier than whoever’s boyfriend/girlfriend may be listening in. 77 weeks on the chart and still holding strong.
These ringtones say…‘I LIKE TO GET HIGH’
“Because I Got High,” Afroman. The title says it all. 108 weeks on the chart, and still in the top 5.

“We Fly High,” Jim Jones. The Harlem rapper’s anthem of lofty living. The sixth most popular jingle of 2007.
These ringtones say…‘I’M HORNY!’
“Buy You a Drank,” T-Pain. The lyric is all about getting someone drunk enough so that you can have your way with them. The second most popular ringy-dingy of the year. It recently spent seven weeks at No. 1.
“I’m a Flirt,” R. Kelly. A come-on anthem by America’s most notorious horndog. The fifth most popular ringtone of the year.
“Candy Shop,” 50 Cent. Treating sex as a purchasable sweet. 120 weeks on the chart with no letup.
These ringtones say…‘I’M BAD AND/OR COOL’
