Naya Rivera vs. The Weeknd – 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.
The Weeknd serves as Rivera’s opponent this week. Teasing fans with new tracks from his upcoming album, ‘Kiss Land,’ (out on Sept. 10), he’s back again with ‘Live For.’ Featuring fellow Toronto artist Drake, the song keeps a smooth flow with intermittent claps and beats which balance The Weeknd’s vocals.
“I’m about to lose control / Well they can watch me f— it up all in one night / I’m in my city in the summer / Camo’d out, leather booted / Kissing b—–s in the club / They wanna threesome, then some / Spend whatever come in, f— an income,” he croons.
