Backstreet Boys vs. Katy Perry – Pop Clash
Like we said before, Backstreet Boys' 'In a World Like This' takes on an encouraging tone. In the track, the guys acknowledge that there are a lot of hardships in the world and a lot of people cave in -- but not them. In fact, they're free-falling in the best sort of way.
Then there's Ms. Perry, who may be shedding her candy-coated image, but her music is still uplifting. On 'ROAR,' Perry is also sending a positive message, telling the world that NO One can hold her down. Just like 'Firework,' the chorus is anthemic and contagious. And don't even bother trying to cover your ears -- there's no way you can avoid her roar!
