Jodeci vs. The Weeknd – The Boombox Battle
The results are in. Jodeci's 'Every Moment' beat out Charlie Wilson and Snoop Dogg's new tune 'Infectious' with over 76 percent of the fan vote, proving that the '90s R&B group is still making an impact on listeners.
One listen to 'Every Moment' and you'll quickly be reminded of what made the North Carolina quartet such superstars in the first place. With a pre-hook big enough to fill a stadium but soft enough to play in a club, the powerful ballad has that classic '90s feel. Plus, it's supported with slick production. The four-part harmony featured is what encapsulates that signature Jodeci sound.
"Give me all of me, giving you all of me too / Trusting me, trusting you in my life," the group sings.
This week, the R&B boys go against the Weeknd and 'Where You Belong,' just one of the two songs that appear on the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' soundtrack. The effort features beautiful, stripped-down production that gives the singer ample room to deliver his introspective lyrics.
"I feel the blood rushing throughout your body / You see the scars painted over my skin / I'm always numb to the topic of loving / I fell in love with the subject of sin," he croons.
The song's subject includes the singer's sexual desires and his inner struggles, which makes for a very interesting listen.
Who's going to take the crown this week? Will Jodeci's gorgeous ballad 'Every Moment' come out on top or is the Weeknd's seductive song earning your vote? Vote for your favorite in the poll below, and as a reminder, you can only vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., Feb. 17, at 10AM ET.
