The Weeknd Enters The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame
Congratulations to the Weeknd. After dominating The Boombox Battle each week with his track, "Where You Belong," and winning four consecutive rounds, he is now the newest member of The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame.
Known for his sexually-charged tunes, the Weeknd brings us yet another one, which appears on the Fifty Shades of Grey film soundtrack. The sensual ballad recounts his desires in the bedroom. And although he does the same on tracks like “Often” and “Earned It,” he further proves that you can sing about sex in so many ways and have them sound very different.
“I’m in control when you give me your body (yeah) / I feel our souls burning up when I’m inside of you / And I’ma leave a mark just to remind you where you belong, baby,” he croons.
The Weeknd's battle journey started by going up against Jodeci. After gaining over 79 percent of the votes, he then garnered 92 percent of the fan vote when he battled Chris Brown and Tyga's "Ayo." And although Common and John Legend won just about every award for their song, "Glory," it just wasn't enough to beat the Weeknd in this battle. He finally sealed the deal and his entrance into the Hall of Fame when his track went up against Tink's "Ratchet Commandments."
The Toronto native joins Fetty Wap, Chris Brown, Tinashe, Michael Jackson, Trey Songz, Lil Durk and T-Pain in The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame.
