The Weeknd vs. Chris Brown & Tyga – The Boombox Battle
Last week, The Boombox Battle ended with the Weeknd beating Jodeci in a huge landslide. The Toronto crooner’s “Where You Belong” reigns supreme for the second consecutive week with a whopping 79 percent of the fan votes.
The seductive ballad is from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack, which is in stores now. On the minimalistic song, the Weekend sings about his sexual desires when he’s in the bedroom.
“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 in his echoic vocals.
The Weeknd’s opponent this week is the R&B and rap tandem of Chris Brown and Tyga. The pair have teamed up on “Ayo,” their latest single from their collaborative album, Fan of a Fan. The collection is due to hit stores on Feb. 24.
On the bouncy track, Breezy and T-Raww boast about bagging money and hot chicks. “I'm the black Richie Rich with the roof missing / If it don't make dollars it don't make sense,” raps Tyga.
Meanwhile, Brown is eyeing a fly honey he wants to take home. "I wanna see her body / She said get inside of me / I wanna feel you baby (yeah) / Just bring the animal right out of me,” he sings.
