Ariana Grande dominated last week’s Pop Clash battle, culling in 70% of the votes and beating out Jason Derulo! So this week we put ‘Almost Is Never Enough’ up against another song about love lost, Miley Cyrus‘ ‘Wrecking Ball.’

In ‘Almost Is Never Enough,’ Grande sings about a relationship failing, with the help of the Wanted‘s Nathan Sykes. Backed by R&B snaps and a slow piano melody, Ariana talks about giving up, but longing for a second chance: “If I could change the world overnight / there’d be no such thing as goodbye / You’ll be standing right where you were / And we’d get the chance we deserve.”

Miley Cyrus sings about falling in love …hard… and for whatever reason, it didn’t work out. It’s more synth pop than Grande’s R&B ballad, and there’s a lot of emotion and ’80s rock influence in the chorus, as Cyrus belts: “I came in like a wrecking ball / I never hit so hard in love / All I wanted was to break your walls / All you ever did was wreck me.” It’s one of Cyrus’ better songs, and just by looking at her facial expressions featured in the track’s music video, you know this is a subject that hits close to home.

So who will you vote for PopCrushers — Ariana Grande or Miley Cyurs? You can vote once per hour until the poll closes at 3PM ET on Sept. 16.
