Ciara is still rocking her ‘Body Party.’ The R&B songbird beat J. Cole‘s self-esteem anthem ‘Crooked Smile’ featuring TLC as the Hottest Summer Song to remain the victor for the third week in a row.

‘Body Party’ nabbed 55 Percent of the vote to Cole’s 45 Percent in the latest Hottest Summer Song poll. This week, CiCi will face off with a major challenger in the rap game — Jay Z.

Arguably, Hov’s double-platinum opus ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ was one of the hottest albums of the summer. The collection boasts the fine-arts banger ‘Picasso Baby’ and the braggadocios ‘Somewhere in America.’

One of the album’s highlights is the kick-off track ‘Holy Grail’ featuring Justin Timberlake. On it, Jay spits a myriad of rap quotables about being hip-hop’s biggest rap star.

“Now I got tattoos on my body, psycho bitches in my lobby / I got haters in the paper, photo shoots with paparazzi / Can’t even take my daughter for a walk / See ’em by the corner store / I feel like I’m cornered off, enough is enough, I’m calling this off,” he raps.

The video is equally compelling with its dramatic visuals and both Jay Z and JT’s verses are flipped in reverse.

So which one is the better summer jam? Is it Ciara’s seductive ballad or Jay Z’s anthem ‘Holy Grail’?

Vote below to decide before the poll closes Sept. 19 at 11:59PM. Remember, you can vote once per hour.
