Jhene Aiko vs. K. Michelle — The Boombox Battle
Post Malone stayed strong over the past month in the Boombox Battle. And after getting more than 87 percent of the vote, Malone not only beat Future's "Wicked," but also booked a one-way ticket into The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame.
With Malone and his song, "Boy Bandz," in the Hall of Fame, we have two new artists and tracks set to duke it out this week. First up is Jhene Aiko and her song "B's & H's." While she's known for her laid back R&B vibe, Jhene packs a lyrical punch on this one. Calling out her (then) man creeping around with other women, Jhene doesn't sit around and feel sorry for herself. She moves on from the bad situation.
“It does not get better / You cannot do better / And you will regret it / Oh yeah, you gon’ f--- around and find yourself by yourself / Find yourself, that might help / Traded it all in for, messing with all of your bitches and ho’s,” she sings.
Meanwhile, K. Michelle delivers a heartbreaking but uplifting track, "Not a Little Bit." Knowing she's not in a healthy relationship, she recognizes that she has to leave. With the gentle piano melody, you can't help but feel sorry for her. However, as she sings on the first verse, she might be alone but she's doing okay.
“How’d I believe that this time would be different? / How’d I believe that you changed? / I wanted too much so I said I could take it / But I couldn’t handle the strain,” she delivers.
Michelle continues her lament and sings, “It’s gonna take a miracle this time / To make me change my mind / I’m alone and doing fine / So I leave it all behind,” she continues as she builds up the chorus to belt out some notes.
Who will win this week? Will Jhene Aiko's infidelity tune take the prize? Or will K. Michelle's defiant song rise to the top? Now it's time for you to decide. Go vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., Feb. 1 at 10AM ET.
