Tori Kelly vs. Adele – The Boombox Battle
Congratulations to Janet Jackson for not only winning last week's Boombox Battle but also being inducted into the Boombox Battle Hall of Fame once again. With more than 84 percent of the vote, "Unbreakable" knocked Kelly Rowland's "Dumb" out of the running.
Due to Janet's win and entry into the Hall of Fame, two new songs head into this week's battle. First up is Tori Kelly's remix of "Hollow" featuring Big Sean. While Tori initially penned the track for more spiritual purposes, the rapper's verse turns the love letter to god into an endearing love song.
"I don't wanna be the last man standing / I don't wanna be the lonely one / Picking petals when the party's over / No, it's not any fun," she sings.
Meanwhile, Sean Don responds by spitting, "I know you’ve been up at night / Trying to sleep with one eye open / Crying out enough tears you can fill up the Atlantic Ocean / Don’t front being home alone we learn this from Macaulay Culkin / So I’m just waiting on you.”
Adele and her record-breaking single, "Hello," will be going up against Tori this week. The song details Adele apologizing to an ex for breaking his heart. Between the slow-paced piano and church bells midway through, "Hello" will make you tear up -- no matter what mood you're in at the time.
"Hello from the outside / At least I can say that I've tried / To tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart / But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore," she belts on the chorus.
Who will win this week? Will Tori's bubbly love song make you vote for her? Or will Adele's heart-wrenching ballad get all the votes? Only you can decide. Go vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. ET.
