K. Michelle vs. Missy Elliott — The Boombox Battle
The brash Memphis singer 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.
Beat queen Missy Elliott will go against K. Michelle this week with her new tune, "Pep Rally." Produced by Pharrell Williams, the song is the perfect track to get the party going. And after she blew everyone away at last year's Super Bowl halftime show, "Pep Rally" will easily be a mainstay in any stadium playlist.
“Rocking not stopping, bend over go ‘head touch your toes / Get it, now get it, now let your bottom scrape the floor / Bouncing and bouncing, now stop, drop, rock and roll / And yeah we get crackin’ like we up at the Super Bowl,” she raps.
Who will win this week? Will it be Michelle’s tune about moving on? Or will Miguel’s remixed track take the victory away. 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. 16 at 10AM ET.
