Ed Sheeran vs. Nicki Minaj – Pop Clash
Congratulations, Sheerios! Ed Sheeran dominated yet another round of Pop Clash with ‘Don’t,’ this time beating out Taylor Swift‘s ‘Shake It Off’ with over 58% of votes. Ed Sheeran’s ‘Don’t’ is now facing off against Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Anaconda.’ Which song should win this week’s Pop Clash?
There’s a reason that Ed Sheeran keeps right on winnin’ Pop Clash — the ginger-haired singer-songwriter knows how to write a damn good pop song. ‘Don’t’ is no exception, with its biting lyrics and catchy “ba da ba ba ba”s. Sheeran’s emotion shines through the track, illuminating it with the kind of passion that only a genuinely talented musician and lyricist can give.
Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ has been the talk of the town — because, let’s face it, people can’t just stop chatting about her butt… including the rapper herself! Minaj is not afraid to be bold and confident, proudly spitting rhyme after rhyme about her booty and how amazing it is. Our favorite part of the track? The awesome ’90s throwback that is Sir Mix-A-Lot’s ‘Baby Got Back.’
