Chris Brown vs. Selena Gomez – Pop Clash
Team Breezy is in it to win it! Thanks to his fans, Chris Brown has won the latest round of Pop Clash against Justin Bieber, with ‘Fine China’ overtaking ‘All Around the World’ by just a hair. It was definitely a tough battle, with more than 50,000 votes coming in, but Beliebers couldn’t match the power of Breezy’s army in this case.
This week, as returning champ, the R&B dancing machine will take on his former competitor’s ex GF, Selena Gomez, as ‘Fine China’ will go head-to-head with her brand-new single, ‘Come & Get It.’ So, who will dominate this round?
Chris Brown’s ‘Fine China’ is one the best songs we’ve heard from the Virginia boy in a long time. Instead of going the electro route that we saw so frequently on ‘Fortune,’ Breezy ditched the studio effects and stuck to straight R&B for ‘Fine China.’ On the love song, Brown tries to win over the woman of his dreams, crooning, “Favorite, you’re my favorite / It’s like all the girls around me don’t have faces / And the saying goes / Life is just a game / But I’m not playin‘.”
Meanwhile, unlike Breezy returning to his roots, Selena Gomez is actually changing up her sound quite a bit on her first single without her band, the Scene. ‘Come & Get It’ starts out with some Indian-esque drums and chants, before the full sound drops semi-EDM style, and Gomez’s vocals kick in. While she doesn’t give the most impressive vocal delivery (save for the breakdown, where Sel belts a bit), the song doesn’t really call for it either, and the beat is so freakin’ catchy, you won’t even dwell on how simple the infectious chorus is: “When you’re ready come and get it / Na na na.”
