Rawyals vs. Boosie Badazz – The Boombox Battle
Rawyals might not be a household name just yet, but the R&B trio prove that they've got a pretty solid following with their win in The Boombox Battle this week. With more than 95 percent of the vote, Rawyals soared past Ray J's "Brown Sugar" in the competition.
Mentored by 50 Cent, Rawyals are making their mark with the song “King Me” featuring Fetty Wap. The bass-heavy mid-tempo track features the strong, independent ladies Ariel Nicholson, Bel Cabrera and Asia Shabazz. According to the lyrics, they won't be taken advantage of and in this chess game, they rule above all else.
“I don’t associate with lames now / Another level, we are not the same now / Chance or check ’cause I’m gon’ end the game up / A pawn and queen together, never stay in your lane / Baby I, I don’t do it / Out of your league, you must be stupid / Up on this pedestal looking at you acting like a groupie / Got my crown on tilt cause I know they watching, watching me / ‘Cause I ain’t no regular, regular, nah bitch I’m royalty,” they sing.
Their opponent in the next round is Boosie Badazz, who follows the same vein as Rawyals with his song, "She Don't Love Me," offering some hip-hop and R&B. Chris Brown assists Boosie on the effort, kicking things off by detailing just the kind of woman he's searching for. "I've been looking for somebody who gon' hold me down in this cold world," he sings.
Boosie then jumps on and attacks his verse with confidence but he sounds a bit disappointed. While he's on his quest to find the right girl for himself, it seems the one by his side at the moment just isn't the ride-or-die woman he desires.
"Sometimes, she be sweet as cotton candy / But most time, she look at me like she can't stand me / I need sunshine, a bad chick to make me happy / Sexing keep me laughing, text me something nasty / System against me, the world call me an outcast / So I need a down chick, if you ain't down you down bad," he delivers on the second verse.
Who will win this week? Will Rawyals take their third straight win? Or will Boosie Badazz's mission to find Ms. Right get the votes? Now it's up to you. Go vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., June 2 at 10 a.m. ET.
