Trey Songz vs. Ariana Grande – R&B Sound Off
Trey Songz is still going strong with another win. The singer’s track, ‘Sensational,’ dominated last week’s R&B Sound Off by picking up 68.2 percent and beat out Dawn Richard‘s latest tune, ‘Meteors,’ which only picked up 31.8 percent.
‘Sensational’ brings it back to the old school style of R&B. Songz serenades his special lady with a high falsetto similar to that of Maxwell in ‘This Woman’s Work.’ So this love ode is obviously sultry.
“Your kiss, your lips taste sweet as honey, darling / I just lose myself inside of you, you / Touch me, hold me, need me, keep me / Swear you’ll never leave me,” he sings.
Ariana Grande’s ‘Baby I’ competes with Songz’s track this week. The upbeat R&B song pays homage to those we heard in the ’90s, but with a freshness courtesy of Grande’s high vocals. The Babyface-produced track is a follow-up to ‘The Way,’ her collaboration with Mac Miller. Both will appear on her upcoming debut album slated for a Sept. 3 release.
