While the title of her song may suggest differently, Christina Aguilera is no fool, because she’s managed to garner some of those most loyal fans out there! Thanks to tons of votes from her army of devoted listeners, Xtina’s new Blake Shelton-featured single ‘Just a Fool’ will receive 20+ spins on PopCrush’s radio show this weekend!

In this week’s About to Pop competition, will.i.am and Britney Spears are kicking things off with their collaborative party jam ‘Scream & Shout.’ The dancey, electropop song starts out with some simple rhymes from Brit, who sounds a lot like Nicki Minaj’s Roman with her British-laced accent. The uptempo beat continuously builds throughout the Auto-tuned “oh wee oh” chorus, all the way up until the ‘Gimme More’ sample of “it’s Britney b—-,” which totally makes the entire song by the way.

Following the heavy club beats of will and Brit is Ed Sheeran‘s ‘Give Me Love,’ which is on the complete opposite side of the pop music spectrum. With his soft, acoustic strumming becoming the main musical focal point, Sheeran’s delicately beautiful voice and songwriting prowess really take center stage as he sings, “Give a little time to me or burn this out / We’ll play hide and seek to turn this around / All I want is the taste that your lips allow / My, my, my, my, oh give me love,” on the heartfelt refrain.

Austin Mahone, Gavin DeGraw and fun. are also in the running this week, so will and Ed fans will have to stay on their toes with votes this week! Austin Mahone is in the running for his bubblegum, Biz Markie-inspired tune ‘Say You’re Just a Friend,’ featuring Flo Rida, and Gavin’s up for the About to Pop win his bluesy, piano-centric ballad ‘Soldier.’ Finally, fun. are giving it another go with ‘Carry On,’ another swelling and rousing sing-along from the trio.

Listen to all of this week’s About to Pop tracks below and vote for the song you like best once per hour until the poll closes on Dec. 10 at 3PM EST.
