Michael Jackson vs. Chris Brown — The Boombox Battle
Michael Jackson may be gone, but he’s not forgotten. The King of Pop’s new song ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ beats Wiz Khalifa’s ‘We Dem Boyz’ in The Boombox Battle. The rapper scored 19.02 percent of the vote while the late singer earned 80.98 percent of the votes. This week, MJ’s Justin Timberlake-assisted track goes up against Chris Brown‘s ‘Loyal’ featuring Lil Wayne and Tyga.
‘Love Never Felt So Good’ was written by the legendary singer along with singer-songwriter Paul Anka, and it was recorded back in 1983. Timberlake jumped on the cut, which sits on MJ’s posthumous LP, ‘Xscape.’ The song is about Jackson finding the perfect mate.
“Baby, love never felt so good / And I’d die if it ever could / Not like you hold me, hold me… Oh baby, love never felt so fine / And I’d die if it’s ever mine / Not like you’ve hold me, hold me,” Jackson croons.
On the other side of the competition is Chris Brown’s ‘Loyal’ featuring Lil Wayne and Tyga. The song details the kind of woman that will leave you for someone who’s more financially stable.
“Took a broke n— bitch / I can make a broke bitch rich / But I don’t fuck with broke bitches/ Got a white girl with some fake t—ies / I took her to the Bay with me / Eyes closed, smoking marijuana / Rolling up that Bob Marley I’m a rasta,” sings Brown.
There’s no denying the song’s appeal as it’s been climbing the Billboard charts since it debuted. Plus, now that the warm weather is here, it’s hard not to hear the catchy tune blasting from car stereos.
So who will be the next winner? Will it be Chris Brown’s ode to disloyal women or will it be Michael Jackson’s song about finding the perfect love? You’ll be able to vote for your favorite once per hour until the polls shut down Tues., June 3, at 10AM ET.
