Wiz Khalifa vs. Michael Jackson – The Boombox Battle
Now that Trey Songz has been inducted into The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame after winning four consecutive competitions with his hit ‘Na Na,’ it’s time for two new songs to enter the challenge this week: Wiz Khalifa‘s ‘We Dem Boys’ and Michael Jackson‘s ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ featuring Justin Timberlake.
Wiz Khalifa’s forthcoming fifth album, ‘Blacc Hollywood,’ is one of the more anticipated hip-hop LPs this year, and his single, ‘We Dem Boyz,’ has received just as much praise. An anthem of sorts, Wiz says the song is the 2014 version of ‘Black and Yellow.’ Produced by Detail, the party track celebrates having fun, getting high and hanging out with the team, all while getting the ladies.
“Hol’ up, hol’ up, hol’ up, you drive me crazy / No. 1, bitch you can’t replace me / Leave the club these hoes be tryin’ to chase me / You got a ass so fat let’s make a baby / Damn, I’m smokin’ weed in my Mercedes,” he raps on the second verse.
Meanwhile, Michael Jackson’s recently released track, ‘Love Never Felt So Good,’ is a upbeat pop-infused song that brings us back to the ’80s, which was when the song was originally recorded. Using the King of Pop’s vocals from a 1983 recording, Justin Timberlake supports the singer on the effort to give it a more updated sound. The duo of past and present profess their feelings for that special someone in their lives.
“’Cause baby, every time I love you / In and out of my life, in out, baby / Tell me, if you really love me / It’s in and out my life, in out, baby / So baby, yes, love never felt so good,” Michael sings on the chorus.
