Ciara vs. Bridget Kelly – R&B Sound Off
The songstress earned a major part of the fan votes with 73.77 percent while the Motown Records crooner garnered 26.23 percent of the readers’ approval. He almost scored a fourth win, which would have put ‘Leggo’ in the R&B Hall of Fame. But don’t fret B. Smyth supporters, there’s always more chances for him to compete again with a new song.
Enter Ciara’s new challenger: Bridget Kelly. The Roc Nation signee arrives with ‘Street Dreamin’,’ a song featured on DJ Funkmaster Flex’s forthcoming mixtape, ‘Who You Mad At? Me or Yourself?’
Kendrick Lamar lends a verse and supports the New York City-born chanteuse, who would rather keep dreaming than face life as she knows it. “Lovely lullabies / I don’t see another thing but starry skies / And those are clouds beneath my wings and endless skies / As far as hazy eyes can see the sun will rise / And illuminate this life / Oh why, why do I have to return to reality,” she sings.
Will Ciara hold onto her top spot for another week? Or will Bridget Kelly be able to dethrone CiCi with her new head-nodding track? Vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., March 19, at 10 a.m. ET.
