The summer is finally here! And to kick off what’s going to be an awesome three months of warm weather, cool breezes and sunny days, we’re bringing back the Battle of the Summer Jams. Similar to last year, we’ll be bringing you two songs every week in an epic face-off to determine which single is going to be the song of the summer. Last year, Ciara’s “Body Party” took top honors but who will it be this year? First up are Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea. Both artists are having breakout moments thanks to their chart-topping singles, which are perfect for backyard BBQs and summer clubbing. So which song are you digging: “Problem” or “Fancy”?
Ariana Grande, “Problem”
First up is Grande’s fresh new single from her forthcoming sophomore album. The song, which features Iggy Azalea, has raced up the charts sitting at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The jam has surpassed her first hit, “The Way,” giving fans an even more sophisticated vibe and sound. We’re here for whatever Grande’s serving.
Iggy Azalea, “Fancy”
Not to be outdone by the pint-sized singer, Azalea is doing some chart-topping on her own. Her single, “Fancy” has peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, not only giving the Aussie singer her first number 1 single but also serving up the summer’s first hit. Thanks to her Clueless-inspired video, the rapper has fans vibing on her fresh sound while feeling nostalgic for Cher all over again.
This is one tough face-off to kick of the Battle of the Summer Jams. So who will it be? Time to vote!
You have until next Thursday to make your voice heard. And we’ll share the winner next week when we are back with our second battle.
