Jessie Ware vs. Fantasia – R&B Sound Off
Ware’s 79.41 percent was more than enough to topple any chance that Luke James and his track, ‘I.O.U.,’ had in becoming the winner of this R&B Sound Off.
Ware’s ‘Wildest Moments,’ off her debut album, ‘Devotion, which releases today, features the rap skills of A$AP Rocky, which adds some edge and fills 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.
On top of her American LP release, iTunes has also marked the occasion by featuring this song (sans Rocky) as its ‘Single of the Week.’
Although it looks like Ware is shining in the spotlight at the moment, Fantasia and her new track, ‘Supernatural Love,’ with Big K.R.I.T., will go against her in this week’s music battle. With a heavy rock rhythm in the background, the ‘American Idol’ alum throws her heart on her sleeve with this edgy soul track. ‘Supernatural Love’ is the latest single off Fantasia’s upcoming album, ‘Side Effects of You,’ out April 23.
“I’m a lady, I’m a woman, I’m a mother, I’m a daughter/ But when I’m with you, I have powers / Baby, this how you make me feel,” she sings.
