Naya Rivera vs. Jhene Aiko – R&B Sound Off
Rivera brings a bit of sass to her own love song with ‘Sorry.’ Featuring her boo, Big Sean, she expresses her feelings for him while calling out his previous girlfriends for essentially not being the woman he wants. The uptempo tune is the first single off her forthcoming album.
“Sorry, I’m not sorry / ‘Cause I’ve been rolling round, shut it down, lady / Bagged him up, now he’s my baby / Sorry, I’m not sorry / Yeah, you had your fun now it’s done, crazy / Lookin’ at his number one lady, ” Rivera sings.
This week, Jhene Aiko will attempt to take away Rivera’s R&B Sound Off crown. Her song, ‘Comfort Inn Ending (Cont’d)’ delves into the regret of being in a dishonest relationship. The mix of bell-like electronic tones with this California singer’s soft and delicate voice is an interesting contrast to the sharpness in the lyrics.
“And I should’ve never took you on a boat on your birthday / And I should’ve never f—ed you on a boat on your birthday / And I never would’ve came into your house in the first place / If I would’ve known you would’ve hurt me in the worst way,” she delivers.
