Battle Of The Summer Jams: The R&B Showdown

We are grooving into summer and it’s our fifth week of the Battle Of The Summer Jams. The last round was an Icona Pop face off with the group’s two singles, “I Like It” and “Girlfriend.” Readers weighed in and awarded “I Like It” the champ with 57 percent of the vote. This week we are going to slow things down with some silky R&B action. It’s time to put Ciara’s comeback single, “Body Party,” to the test. How will she fare against “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” by Kendrick Lamar? Listen and vote!

Ciara, “Body Party”

While people are still wondering what a ’body party’ is, Ciara appears to have struck gold with this sultry R&B jam. It’s welcome comeback after many stalled attempts to get back on the radio.

Kendrick Lamar, “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe”

This is probably the most grief-stricken song to burn up the charts. But it’s not all woe and sorrow for the singer as he celebrates the transition of life and picks himself back up again.

So who will it be for this round? Time to let us know!
