T-Pain vs. Janet Jackson — The Boombox Battle
T-Pain moves to the next round with his song “Make That S--- Work.” The track is an instant club banger with its piano-driven instrumental and finger-snapping beat, thanks to DJ Mustard. Along with Juicy J, T-Pizzle gives it up to the strippers by encouraging them to really get down and essentially make all their assets work for the bills they’ll be throwing at them.
“Now when we swervin’ in the ‘Lac you know we makin’ it jerk / You almost made me spill this Jack up on this $10 shirt / Shawty tell me when you and your friend get off work / ‘Cause all these other bitches just pretendin’ to twerk,” T-Pain raps on the bouncy beat.
Janet Jackson is T-Pain's opponent this week with her comeback single, "No Sleeep." Starting the song with the same sample from her new music announcement video, the track has a slow groove that's reminiscent of her 1997 album Velvet Rope.
Janet sings about how she and the guy will always have sleepless nights whenever they're together because it's pretty few and far between. This is clearly a great track for anyone in a long distance relationship.
"48 hours in love / It ought to be a weekend marathon / So you better get ready, my king / Cause I'ma be the queen of insomnia / Stay wide awake / For every moment we spend together / Cause every second you're awake / Feels like forever," the R&B songstress sings on the second verse.
Will T-Pain’s party track keep fans voting for him? Or will Janet Jackson's mood music woo voters? Go vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., June 30 at 10AM ET.
