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.
Magic of Love
THEY ARE: A trio of J-Pop veterans, Aa-chan, Kashiyuka and Nocchi have spent the last decade reinventing themselves with different sounds. Right now they're in a bright and bubbly electropop phase, releasing music that wouldn't sound out of place in a Nintendo game.
THE SONG: After an abortive attempt to go in a kid-friendly direction, Perfume returns to their Perfume gets back to their dance-pop wheelhouse with "Magic of Love." If Kylie Minogue moved to Tokyo, this is the music she would make.
THEY ARE: Five brothers from St. Petersburg, Florida, who first shot to fame in 2005 as proteges of one Sean Combs. They've grown up a lot since then, and their classic grooves have matured with them.
THE SONG: An Usher-worthy jam about finding the right girl, taking things slow, making sure it's not just a one-time thing. In other words, the stuff R&B love songs are made of, but the Breeding brothers sell the come-ons with considerable aplomb.
