Tiara Thomas vs. Tory Lanez – The Boombox Battle
Tiara Thomas can't be beat. The singer has come out on top in The Boombox Battle this week. With more than 83 percent of the vote, Tiara blows Bridget Kelly and her song, "Act Like That," out of the competition.
Thomas' new track “Mary Jane” finds her showing lots of love for the sticky green. The smoker's celebratory track has a relaxing, sultry vibe paired with a reggae-tinged beat. This will mellow you out as much as the grass can. Off her new EP, Up in Smoke, Tiara sings throughout the tune but also breaks it down with a rap verse midway through.
“What a shame, what a shame, what a shame / I been turned out by Mary Jane / Hell of a name, hell of a name / And not a damn thing gonna change / She put me in strong choke hold / She a feisty one / Call her in shape but she ain’t quite the Nike one / Had a long day when I get home / You know I might need some / You know I don’t give no f--- / I just say, ‘Light me one,” she sings.
This week, Tiara goes up against Tory Lanez and his track, "Say It," which is available now on iTunes via Mad Love/Interscope Records. Tory wants to make sure his lady is keeping it 100 with her feelings over a sample of Brownstone's 1994 track, "If You Love Me." Just like the throwback R&B song requests, the Toronto crooner wants her to do more than tell him that she's interested -- he wants her to act on it.
"You gon 'have to do more than just (say it) / You gon' have to do less when you (do it) / Tell mama you know I (show it) / Always want you to (prove it) / You gon' have to do more than just (say it) / You gon have to do less when you (do it) / Tell mama you know I (show it) / See you gon' need to more than just (prove it)," he sings.
Will Tiara's stoner track take the win again this week? Or will Tory's smooth love song woo fans to vote for him? It’s time for you to decide. Go vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., Sept. 1 at 10 a.m. ET.
