Lyfe Jennings vs. Mack Wilds – R&B Sound Off
Jennings brings us a new twist on a classic breakup song with ‘I Wish.’ Bitter might be the mildest way to describe this tune as Jennings seems so fed up with his significant other that he wants her to die — unfortunate for her.
“Girl I wish, nothing but bad luck / Hope you get hit by a truck… and die,” he delivers.
This week, Mack Wilds comes out with ‘Wild Things,’ the third single off his upcoming album, ‘New York: A Love Story.’ Featuring Method Man, the song kicks off with an orchestral opening followed by a beat that’s relatively familiar to the East Coast. Celebrating his love for the Big Apple, Wilds comes out hard, despite his smooth vocals, on how he reps his town.
“Come from the crown side / The New York town side / West side till I di-e / I grew up hearing that Wu-not / Watching that cop that / You feel like cooking this / Hercules get a hand god damn,” he sings.
Will Jennings keep the winning streak going? Or will Wilds be the new king of the R&B Sound Off? Vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., Sept. 24, at 10AM ET.
