Hottest Summer Song: Ciara’s ‘Body Party’ vs. J. Cole’s ‘Crooked Smile’ Featuring TLC
The Drake feature didn’t do much for the Atlanta trio (currently a duo due to Offset’s incarceration) as ‘Body Party’ still dominated by getting 85.83 percent in the latest Hottest Summer Song poll. While the ‘Versace (Remix)’ didn’t offer much competition, there are a few other songs that might. J. Cole‘s ‘Crooked Smile’ featuring TLC is one of them.
J. Cole’s ‘Born Sinner’ was one of the summer’s most anticipated albums, and it dropped on what was supposed to be a big day in hip-hop (‘Born Sinner,’ Kanye West‘s ‘Yeezus’ and Mac Miller‘s ‘Watching Movies with the Sound Off’ were all released prior). The album garnered a positive response and one of the highlights was ‘Crooked Smile,’ which pulled a surprising TLC feature. The song had the instant quotable, “I keep my twisted grill, just to show the kids it’s real,” which seemed destined to be referenced in hundreds of tweets and Facebook statuses.
So that’s J. Cole’s and the renowned girl group’s positive track against Ciara’s sensual hit. Which one was the better summer jam? Vote below to decide before the poll closes Sept. 11 at 11:59 PM. Remember, you can vote once per hour.
