Chris Brown vs. Usher — The Boombox Battle
Chris Brown has done it again. With more than 73 percent of the vote, the singer dominates The Boombox Battle for the second week in a row, this time against Estelle and her new song 'Something Good.'
The ‘X’ creator’s new track, ‘Autumn Leaves’ features Kendrick Lamar, who speeds through his verse in a breathy and lighter voice. Brown sings about a relationship that isn’t working out. Using natural metaphors in his lyrics, he sounds emotional over the synthy R&B melody.
“I’ve been bleeding in your silence / I feel safer in your violence / I hold on like leaves and fall to what is left / Before I sleep I talk to God / He must be mad with me, it’s coming / I’m confused who’ll I’ll spend my forever with,” Chris sings on the second verse.
Usher is Breezy's opponent this week with his single 'I Don't Mind.' Featuring a verse by Juicy J, the song gives some love to the ladies who work the pole. With a beat produced by Dr. Luke, this pop-infused R&B track is the perfect dancefloor ditty.
“Shawty, I don’t mind if you dance on a pole / That don’t make you a ho,” Usher sings on the chorus. “You can take off your clothes, long as you coming home / Girl, I don’t mind.”
Who will win this week? Will it be Chris Brown’s breakup track? Or Usher's stripper love song? It’s up to you to decide. Vote for your favorite artist’s song once per hour until the polls shut down on Tues., Oct. 14, at 10AM ET.
