Shakira vs. Kylie Minogue – Pop Clash
Last week’s Pop Clash was a battle to the death, as Shakira and Rihanna were battling it out with Beyonce and Jay Z. Well, ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’ prevailed over ‘Drunk in Love’ but by the narrowest of margins. Shak and RiRi will now face Kylie Minogue‘s sexy new single ‘Into the Blue.’
Shakira and Rihanna’s sexy, ska-inspired, tropical ode to being unable to shake their minds, bodies or hearts of a not-so-good lover was no doubt helped by the steamy video that made its debut last week. Shakira and RiRi are two of the hottest and most talented divas in pop, but it took two of them to keep Queen Bey at bay! The song caught fire at radio and is full of Shak’s vocal acrobatics and RiRi’s smolder. They bring the spice and the heat. It’s going to be a tough tune to topple.
But you know who and what are up for the task?
Oh, just global pop queen Kylie Minogue and her brand new single ‘Into the Blue.’ The track is her first for new label Warner Bros. and her new management team at Roc Nation. It’s an electro pop song that will make you want to dance until your legs give out. But it’s not an EDM banger. It has plenty of sweet pop sensibilities, so it sounds good cranking in your house without making it feel like your are trapped among sweaty bodies at a nightclub. It will appear on the diva’s next album ‘Kiss Me Once,’ her 12th. Yep, Kylie is an icon.
That’s all we have to say. Now, it’s up to you to decide who reigns supreme in this week’s Pop Clash by voting. Do you want to cast your vote for Shak x RiRi’s ’Can’t Remember to Forget You,’ or are you totally into Kylie and her ‘Into the Blue?’
You can vote once an hour until the polls close at 3PM ET on Monday, Feb. 10. We’ll publish the results and let you know which song earned the victory at that time.
