Tori Kelly vs. Alessia Cara – The Boombox Battle
Adele may be breaking records everywhere with her comeback single, "Hello," but it looks like she is no match for Tori Kelly's soaring remix of "Hollow." With a whopping 86 percent, the California native dominated last week's Boombox Battle.
The “Hollow” remix features Big Sean and adds a bit more bounce to the original pop song. 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.”
Alessia Cara competes against Tori in this week's Battle with her new track, "Wild Things." Like her smash hit, "Here," the singer draws from her personal experiences. She also doesn't hold back and tells the haters where to go with this one. At only 19, Alessia proves age is nothing but a number and shines with her unfiltered honesty and passionate voice. If only we all could be that confident in ourselves at that age. "Wild Things" delves into her joy of being on the outside and having fun doing so.
"So aye, we brought our drum and this is how we dance / No mistakin', we make our breaks, if you don't like our 808s / Then leave us alone, 'cause we don't need your policies / We have no apologies for being," she delivers. "Find me where the wild things are / Oh my, we'll be alright / Don't mind us / Find me where the wild things are / Oh my, we'll be just fine / Don't mind us, yeah / Find me where the wild things are."
Who will win this week? Will Tori's collabo with Big Sean take it again this week? Or will Alessia's anthem for the outcasts swing the votes? Only you can decide.
