Jay-Z and Beyonce have another reason to celebrate this morning (05DEC03) following their trawl of Grammy nominations - their hit collaboration CRAZY IN LOVE has been named ROLLING STONE's Song of The Year.

The funky track, which has topped charts worldwide, beat off challenges by Johnny Cash's Hurt and HOUSE OF JEALOUS LOVERS by The Rapture in the rock bible's 'best of' list for 2003.

The magazine's editors also named 50 CENT's IN DA CLUB as the Hip-Hop Single of The Year; NO THANKS! THE '70S PUNK REBELLION as Reissue of 2003, and Mystic River as Best Movie.

Among the magazine's 50 Best Albums of 2003 are THE White Stripes' Elephant, GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN' by 50 CENT, Blur's THINK TANK, DANGEROUSLY IN LOVE by BEYONCE and Warren Zevon's swansong THE WIND.
