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.
THEY ARE: He hasn’t always been the world’s most sympatric musician, but damn, Chris Brown really does know how to put together a song. And he’s bringing melody back into the rap genre. His smooth singing style combined with Lil Wayne and Tyga’s more hardened style has created a pretty solid hit.
THE SONG: We don’t know if we can completely support the message (I don’t f*ck with broke bitches? Harsh), but we can’t stop our hips from swaying when Loyal comes on. It doesn’t hurt that Chris has a completely adorable baby face either. Add in the fact that he’s a pretty slick dancer and you’ve got yourself a full-fledged crush. History of assault aside, that is.
HE IS: An English singer-songwriter who really knows how to hit those high notes. Sheeran started to gain fame in the US after both making a guest appearance on Taylor Swift’s album Red and writing songs for One Direction. Yup, that should do it, as far as game goes. He may not look like your traditional leading man, but he sure doesn’t shy away from the sexier side of life. You can count on him to include boozing, smoking, and sexing in his up-beat hits.
THE SONG: It’s a super fun hit with a super sexy intro. That’s right, heavy breathing, quiet moaning…everything the inner-creepy-eavesdropper in us could ask for. Sing has been compared to hits put out by the likes of Justin Timberlake and Pharrell. It’s a layered hit. Good beat, great chorus, and sexy lyrics. Looks like Sheeran knows his target audience and how to get them hooked.
