Tori Kelly vs. Ciara – The Boombox Battle
Her remix to “Hollow” 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.”
Ciara is up against Tori this week with her latest track, "Oh Baby." The slow-paced R&B track is the perfect one for cuffing season as Ciara talks about how much she loves the guys she's with. Inspired by her man, Russell Wilson? With lyrics like these, we think so.
"Every time he calls, I pick up / When he doesn't I be quick to double check my signal / Hold it out the window and pull up my antenna / I'm so gone gotta hit 'em, I'm infatuated with 'em / And ooh, I never felt this before," she sings on the first verse.
"Oh Baby" is a part of her new musical surprise she had for her C Squad, which she revealed yesterday (Nov. 23) via Twitter.
