Oh you know it! It’s ON!
The first “vs” was so successful (Pink vs Rhianna), I figured I might as well try for repeat business! So the first singles from these former Mousketeers have dropped. Britney starts off with a single from her upcoming album. The song “Womanizer” was leaked and its reported that Brit wasn’t too happy about it. Nevertheless, it’s out there and my opinion is…it sucks. With a repeated refrain that simply says “Womanizer” (hence the title of the song…duh), this is not a good way to get her career back on track. It’s no secret that Ms. (Mrs? Miss? What is she now?) Spears is and always will be limited in her vocal range. If ever there was a good example of “overproduced”, this chick is it. But that being said, you can’t deny that she has had a few good pop songs through the years (albeit none recently) and I was kind of hoping she (or her producers) might come out with something interesting. But sadly…it wasn’t to be. This song is terrible. She sings in one key throughout the whole thing and just keeps repeating the title…over…and over…and over.
So lets go to Christina’s new song called “Keep Gettin’ Better”. I’m gonna go on record and say that no pop singer today has a better voice than Aguilera. She’s got range. She’s got emotion and soul. Unfortunately, this track is a step backward. It’s not that it’s terrible, but it’s just that it sounds like something ANY pop starlet could do. Once again, the overproduction gets in the way. She basically shows very little range. It’s just…kinda average. But I have to imagine this will be huge with teens and twenty-somethings. I figure her new album will have all kinds of good stuff on it. But this single won’t be my favorite. But in a One-on-One dual…Christina Aguilera will ALWAYS stomp on Britney Spears any day of the week!
WINNER: Christina Aguilera!
