Florida Georgia Line's current hit "Cruise" mentions Marshall Tucker; while there was nobody in the Marshall Tucker Band, who had charted on AT40 in the 1970's, by that name, the context of the lyrics surely has to refer to the band.
Macklemore mentions R. Kelly in "Thrift Shop", which coincidentally was heard as an extra in this week's AT40, in which R. Kelly has his own hit in "Do What You Want" (with Lady Gaga).
Another extra in this week's show was the likely soon-to-chart "Classic" by MKTO, which mentions several artists (Michael Jackson, Prince, and Marvin Gaye are the ones I can remember, with likely some others.)
