Tamar Braxton vs. Sevyn Streeter – R&B Sound Off
Tamar Braxton is still staying strong at the top spot and took 63.42 percent of the vote in last week’s R&B Sound Off. Mario, who only walked away with 36.58 percent, just wasn’t strong enough to stop Braxton’s winning streak.
She takes a laid-back and chill approach with ‘The One,’ a single off her new album, ‘Love and War,’ releasing this summer. Sampling Mtume’s ‘Juicy Fruit,’ the songstress expresses how much she loves her man (aka husband and producer Vincent Herbert) on this smooth track. “I don’t need no one, baby / Without you I’m incomplete / My love is like the ball / Put it all on me,” she sings.
Singer-songwriter Sevyn Streeter is Braxton’s opponent this week with her latest single, ‘It Won’t Stop.’ Unlike her dance-worthy first single, ‘I Like It,’ she slows things down here, singing about the new man in her life. “Everyday, everyday, I can’t breathe / You take my breath away from me / Here’s my heart, you got the key / Put it on eternity, I’ll love you to infinity,” she sings on the Diplo and Picard Brothers-produced track.
Will Braxton keep her winning streak and be the next artist to enter the R&B Sound Off Hall of Fame? Or will Streeter’s slow jam be able to topple her opponents chances? Vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., June 4, at 10AM ET.
