Daft Punk: The 5 Best Rap & R&B Songs That Sample The “Get Lucky” Duo

As the release date for Daft Punk’s highly anticipated new album Random Access Memories draws nearer, we’re reminded of all those rappers who’ve borrowed the French electro duo’s sounds in the past. (Ten bucks says will.i.am is currently trying to figure out how to make his own version of “Get Lucky” titled “#GetPower”). Some have been more successful uses of their samples than others, but one thing’s for sure: Hip-hop loves Daft Punk. Everyone from Kanye West to Janet Jackson has aped their beats and verses, and we’ve narrowed it down to the top five.

Earlier this week we gave you a roundup of Thomas and Guy-Manuel‘s most groundbreaking videos. Now head below to hear Daft Punk reinterpreted.

Kanye West, “Stronger”: This is perhaps the most famous example of an artist borrowing a beat (and, if we’re being honest, chorus) from Daft Punk. West’s 2007 Graduation single apes the French band’s “Harder Better Faster Stronger,” off their 2001 album Discovery, a buoyantly bouncy electro number that sounds much more aggressive on West’s version. Of course, the song has found itself again repurposed in will.i.am’s new single “#thatPOWER,” on which Justin Bieber tries to replicate the Daft Punk line by chanting “bigger better stronger power” (see what he did there?). When it comes to ripping off this particular song we’re #TeamKanye.
