Jessie Ware vs. Brandy – R&B Sound Off
Congratulations to Ciara! Her song ‘Body Party’ won last week’s R&B Sound Off with 80.93 percent of the votes against Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines,’ which took only 19.07 percent. This is her fourth consecutive week, making ‘Body Party’ the first track to enter the R&B Sound Off Hall of Fame.
‘Wildest Moments’ is the latest single off of Ware’s debut album, ‘Devotion, which will release in the U.S., on April 16. While the British import has already made waves in her native U.K., the songstress has teamed up with A$AP Rocky to add some edge and fill in the empty spaces in this airy proclamation of love.
“Baby in our wildest moments / We could be the greatest, we could be the greatest / Baby in our wildest moments / We could be the worst of all,” Ware sings on the chorus.
Meanwhile, R&B veteran Brandy is back with a remixed version of ‘Can You Hear Me Now?’ which is off the deluxe edition of her 2012 album, ‘Two Eleven.’ Brandy shows her sassy side with Montana on-hand to support her advances on this midtempo track.
Unlike Ware’s more romantic song, Brandy’s low tone and sexy lyrics show us another side of the singer. “Some things are best left unspoken / Don’t waste time with that talk / Just keep that back in motion / It ain’t that easy for me to get off / But I can be your guilty pleasure,” Brandy delivers.
Will Jessie Ware’s ‘Wildest Moments’ woo fans enough to win this week? Or will Brandy’s cheeky ‘Can You Hear Me Now? (Remix)’ take the win? Vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., April 9, at 10 a.m. ET.
