B. Smyth vs. Ciara – R&B Sound Off
The Motown recording star held off Emeli Sande‘s remix of ‘Next to Me,’ featuring Kendrick Lamar, with a whopping 68.09 percent of the votes. Sande only garnered 31.91 percent of the readers’ approval.
Smyth’s next challenger is none other than Ciara, who just released her new R&B ballad, ‘Body Party,’ featuring Future. On the Mike WiLL Made It-produced song, CiCi reveals how she seduces her man in the bedroom. “My body is your party, baby / Nobody’s invited but you baby,” she coos. “I can do it slow now tell me what you want / Baby, put your phone down you should turn it off / Because tonight it’s going down / We are in the zone now, don’t stop.”
