K. Michelle vs. Miguel — The Boombox Battle
K. Michelle knocked Jhene Aiko's chance of advancing in The Boombox Battle with her win last week. The race was tight, but K. Michelle squeaked by with a little over 51 percent of the vote.
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.
Michelle will go against Miguel's new version of "Waves" this week. With a booming beat and rolling echos thanks to Cash Dillon's production, the remixed track has new life to Miguel's party track that gives a shoutout to surfing legend Kelly Slater. The version also features a verse from Travis $cott, which gives the track a strong and more aggressive vibe despite the flowing melody.
“But be your man, I can be that later / Right now I might pull up on ya’ on my surfboard like I’m Kelly Slater / Lavish shit that I might forget / I got e-mails, texts, I ain’t read those yet / Replying to all those needs you said / Like moving on, I might feel that way yeah,” Travis spits.
Who will win this week? Will Michelle's proclamation of welcome singlehood win again? Or will Miguel's remixed track take the victory away. It's time for you to decide.
