- Backstory: The queen's breakup jam was so ubiquitous in 2006, it's not unusual for the melody to enter your head when someone says "to the left." For those hoping "Irreplaceable" is about Beyoncé's love life, though, we're sorry to disappoint.
- Evidence: Ne-Yo, one of the songs cowriters, has said his aunt and her cheating partner put him in the mood to whip up the hit. "I remember him coming to the house and him looking in the closet and going, 'Where's my this, where's my that?' and she said, 'Oh, in the box to the left of the closet. Everything you own is in that box and everything I bought is over here.'"
- Verdict: We all know Bey doesn't date scrubs. Ne-Yo's aunt helped secure this hit.
