French Montana's "Unforgettable," featuring Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee, has been inching its way toward the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and currently sits at No. 13, after jumping up three spots from last week. The hip-swinging single has become Montana's highest-charting record to date and earned platinum status in June.

He explained on Instagram his hope that the tune would show "other people who might be struggling to know that the sky is not the limit. … You can do unforgettable things." After filming the music video for "Unforgettable," which features the talents of Uganda’s Triplets Ghetto Kids, Montana donated $100,000 to Uganda's Mama Hope organization.

The song is part of the Moroccan-American rapper's sophomore LP, Jungle Rules, due this Friday. To celebrate this song's success and French's charitable efforts, Billboard Dance has rounded up the nine best remixes, in no particular order, of "Unforgettable".

1. French Montana feat. Swae Lee, "Unforgettable" (Dzeko remix)

Swae Lee's solo lays over ominous layers and wobbly percussion. However, that all changes around the one-minute mark when Dzeko bolsters the production with a pungent bass line and a flute-based melody in his "Unforgettable" remix.

2. French Montana feat. Swae Lee, "Unforgettable" (Joe Maz remix)

Joe Maz's club-ready rendition of "Unforgettable" stings with a hard-hitting house bass line, brass booms and swinging vocal chops. 

3. French Montana feat. Swae Lee, "Unforgettable" (Xavier White remix)

R&B singer-songwriter takes the original song and completely makes it his own. He swaps "you are unforgettable" for "I did the unthinkable" in his lamenting track and pours his heart out.

4. French Montana feat. Swae Lee, "Unforgettable" (esentrik remix)

New York City-based producer esentrik gets extra brownie points for his imaginative "Unforgettable" remix. The funky disco remake is comprised of swelling accordion-like synths, warped vocal chops and string plucks.

5. French Montana feat. Swae Lee, "Unforgettable" (Dean-E-G house remix)

While there seems to be an abundance of house reworks of French Montana's song "Unforgettable," Dean-E-G adds soft melodic pads, percussive snaps and a rubbery bass line to the mix to push his future house rendition to the front of the pack.

6. French Montana feat. Swae Lee, "Unforgettable" (Beave x LTGTR remix)

Let's speed things up a bit, shall we? Beave and LTGTR’s ramp up the beats per minute on their "Unforgettable" remix and inject a deep house bass line that'll rock any underground nightclub. 

7. French Montana feat. Swae Lee, "Unforgettable" (Audiovista remix)

Audiovista keeps the verses of the original record as is for the most part but smoothly transitions to a future bass sequence with high-pitched vocal clips.

8. French Montana feat. Swae Lee, "Unforgettable" (Omar Basaad remix)

French Montana's song "Unforgettable" gets a tropical twist in its introductory verse before receiving a brass overhaul overlaid with crisp percussion.

9. French Montana feat. Swae Lee, "Unforgettable" (Slushii Remix)

Slushii adds some extra pep to "Unforgettable" with electro synths set to a reggae rhythm.

10. French Montana feat. Swae Lee, "Unforgettable" (graves Remix)

Last but not least graves adds some euphoric larger-than-life synths making his rendition pretty unforgettable.
