Provides examples of:
- All-Star Cast: "One Love", which had Akon, Ne-Yo, The Black Eyed Peas, LMFAO and Kelly Rowland. "One More Love" used those above but added Rihanna to that mix. "Nothing But The Beat" featured Nicki Minaj (twice), Flo Rida, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Ludacris, Usher, Snoop Dogg, will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson and Jessie J.
- Auto-Tune: Used in "Turn Me On" (featuring Nicki Minaj) and heavily in "Who's That Chick?" (featuring Rihanna). To great effect in both.
- Bald Women: Most of the female dolls in the music video of "Turn Me On".
- Barbie Doll Anatomy: Applied to the dolls in the music video of "Turn Me On".
- Bowdlerize: Apart from "Sexy Bitch" becoming "Sexy Chick", the Snoop Dogg collaboration "Wet" ("I just wanna make you wet!") became "Sweat".
- Concept Video: "Titanium" is about a kid (played by Carey of Super 8) who discovers Mind over Matter powers and is hunted for it.
- Epic Fail: Akon tries to find the words to describe this girl without coming across as disrespectful...and ends up spouting the phrase, "Damn, you're a sexy bitch!".
- To make it worse, a previous line says she's not "nothing you can compare to your neighbourhood 'ho".
- Intentionally Awkward Title: "Sexy Bitch" (featuring Akon). The radio version is "Sexy Chick".
- Sampling: He is extremely very fond of sampling, being as he's a DJ and all. Trying to list all of the songs he's sampled would take us way too long. If you want to know how many people he's sampled, the WhoSampled website has you covered.
- Sound Effect Bleep: In the clean version of "Where Them Girls At", in the form of a soccer whistle during Nicki Minaj's verse.
- Spin The Earth Backwards: Shown in the music video for "Little Bad Girl" (featuring Taio Cruz and Ludacris).
- Steampunk: Featured in the music video of "Turn Me On".
- Wolverine Publicity: Compared to most other DJs, except maybe Calvin Harris and Avicii.
