T-Pain vs. Silento – The Boombox Battle
T-Pain proves that the fans want to take it to the club by winning The Boombox Battle. With more than 60 percent of the vote, he took away Travi$ Scott's chances of moving to the next round with his song “Make That S--- Work."
The song is an instant club banger with its piano-driven instrumental and finger-snapping beat, thanks to DJ Mustard. Featuring Juicy J, the rapper gives it up to the strippers by encouraging them to really get down and essentially make all their assets work for the bills they’ll be throwing at them.
“Now when we swervin’ in the ‘Lac you know we makin’ it jerk / You almost made me spill this Jack up on this $10 shirt / Shawty tell me when you and your friend get off work / ‘Cause all these other bitches just pretendin’ to twerk,” T-Pain raps on the bouncy beat.
This week, T-Pain is going to battle with someone who's almost half his age. Atlanta rapper Silento has been heating up the charts with his track, "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)." The catchy tune is like a how-to when it comes to popular dance moves including the "Nae Nae" and the "Whip." Sure, the track initially released in January, but thanks to social media, "Watch Me" has been burning up the charts as everyone wants to get in on this dance craze.
"Now watch me whip (Kill it!) / Now watch me nae nae (Okay!) / Now watch me whip, whip / Watch me nae nae (Want me do it?)," the 17-year-old spitter delivers on the mic.
Will T-Pain’s booty-bouncing song go strong and stay on top? Or will Silento's catchy party track get you moving your way to vote? Go vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., June 23 at 10 a.m. ET.
