Michael Jackson vs. Usher — The Boombox Battle

Michael Jackson Usher
The Boombox

After viewing the Boombox Battle results for last week, it’s clear that competing against a legend will leave you in the dust. Michael Jackson‘s track ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ earned a landslide victory with 79.27 percent of the vote and left Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pills N Potions’ with only 20.73 percent. This means that MJ just won his third consecutive battle, and if he continues this winning streak, he’ll be the next artist to enter the Boombox Battle Hall of Fame.

Written by MJ and legendary pop singer-songwriter Paul Anka, ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ was record in 1983, but received a bit of a refresher with the addition of Justin Timberlake’s vocals. The song, which delves into the beginnings of a romance and finding that special someone, is the lead single from MJ’s posthumous album, ‘Xscape.’

“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 sings.

Even though we know that Usher calls Michael one of his inspirations, there’s no harm in a little competition, right? ‘Good Kisser’ is the latest track from Usher’s upcoming eighth album and the newest song to enter the Boombox Battle. This track — co-written by Usher and produced by Pop Wansel, Flippa, Jproof and Tru — is just as flirty as ‘Love Never Felt So Good,’ but Usher turns up the sex appeal and isn’t afraid to share what’s on his mind.

“I done been around the world / I done kissed a lot of girls so I’m guessing that it’s true,” he croons. “Make me holla and I bet a million dollas, don’t nobody kiss it like you / Don’t nobody kiss it like you, bang-bang-bang.”

Will MJ take the fourth win and enter the Boombox Battle Hall of Fame? Or will his musical apprentice, Usher, dethrone the King of Pop in this battle? You’ll be able to vote for your favorite once per hour until the polls shut down on Tues., June 17, at 10AM ET.
