Rawyals vs. Ray J – The Boombox Battle
While Stromae fans were ready to celebrate his induction into The Boombox Hall of Fame today, R&B girl group Rawyals have stopped him in his tracks. With over 60 percent of the vote, the Big Apple trio beat the Belgian rapper and taken him out of the game in this week's The Boombox Battle.
Mentored by 50 Cent, Rawyals are making their mark with “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, no one will take advantage of them 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.
This week, Rawyals go up against an R&B veteran. Ray J is back with his new track, "Brown Sugar." Although there have been a number of songs released with the same title in the past, Ray gets very detailed here about how much he loves his lady and tasting her sweetness. Both he and Wayne reveal the dirty details of what they plan to do with her when they're alone.
"Brown sugar, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah / I lick you like brown sugar, make me right," Ray sings on the hook.
Who will win this week? Will Rawyals take the win with their party track? Or will fans swoon over Ray J's seductive lyrics? Go vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., May 19 at 10 a.m. ET.
