Two songs enter, but only one will be crowned this week's most awesome new track, as voted by you. The champion's spoils? Gobs of Popdust love, a sparkly championship belt (metaphorical only) and the right to go on and face a fierce new challenger - next week.
SHE IS: A 21-year-old K-pop star who got her start as one fifth of the legendary Wonder Girls. She quit the popular girl group back in 2010 for personal reasons, but recently returned to the music scene as a solo artist with a sexy new image and sophisticated sound that's miles away from the squeaky clean bubblegum of her former bandmates.
THE SONG: "Full Moon" sees Sunmi trade the pulsating dance-pop of her debut hit, "24 Hours," for a slow and seductive hip-hop groove. The lyrics tell the tale of two lovers consummating their relationship on a moonlit night, while the accompanying music video has Sunmi playing a bloodthirsty vampire with a penchant for twerking and booty popping.
SHE IS: A bright-eyed pop princess (also known as Zooey Deschanel’s official doppelganger) who has come a long way since her days as a Christian music singer. Now she’s off touring the world, dating famous musicians, and causing controversy all over the place. If this is the stuff that’s gotten her 11 Grammy nominations, keep it coming girl!
THE SONG: It’s off her fourth album, Prism, and has been hailed as a ‘Southern Rap-Techno Mashup.” Perry appears in the video as a Cleopatra-esque figure that reigns over her thrown and reduces potential lovers to…well, watch the video, you’ll figure it out. Her bubblegum aesthetic collides with Arabic imagery to create an awesome fantasy world, a whole lot of controversy, and one major hit.
