'Fireworks' Face-Off: Katy Perry vs. Drake vs. Kelis

'Fireworks' Face-Off: Katy Perry vs. Drake vs. Kelis-photo

Fourth of July is long over, but it seems all anyone wants to sing about lately is fireworks. Katy Perry, Drake and Kelis (of "Milkshake" fame) all have songs on their new/newish albums titled "Firework" or some variation thereof.

Below, we stack up the Independence Day-inspired tracks in a "Fireworks" Face-Off to be decided be the savvy Celebuzz readers in the following poll. Check out the tunes and let the sparks fly as you vote for Katy, Drake or Kelis in this battle of similarly-titled tunes.

First up is Katy Perry's "Firework," a slow-ish pop ditty with an inspiring message: "Own the night like the Fourth of July/'cause baby you're a firework/Come on, show 'em what you're worth/Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh"/As you shoot across the sky-y-y."

Next, Drake's "Fireworks" (plural!) is straight rap with a little bit of soul, courtesy of Alicia Keys, who is featured singing, "All I see is fireworks…Every night it's fireworks…Taking off like fireworks." (Drake also alludes to his fling with Rihanna on this track. (Bonus: Actual firework sounds over piano music!)

Finally, check out Kelis' electronic/dance tune, "4th of July (Fireworks,)" the contender that has "fireworks" tacked on to its title, but no actual mention of fireworks in its lyrics. However, Kelis does say of an amazing boyfriend (presumably not ex-husband Nas:) "You make me high/just like the sky/like the 4th of July."

It's time to decide this "Firework Face-Off?" Cast your vote in the poll below!

    Katy Perry is a waste of space, in my opinion. She really cannot sing to save her life. That being said.. Kelis is very much a guilty pleasure of mine. Especially that song!

Drake s good sometimes as well, but I feel his music is repetitive, AND KATY YOUR TOO HOTT TO DUMP ON! Blah blah...You just wasted your time writing that comment..Moving on.

Who's the dumbass now? actually, you still are the dumbass...you claimed that nas was one of your faves when he was married to kelis for like 5 years and she had his baby. DRAKE ALL THE WAY!!!

    [quote=That guy] You just showed how dumb you are by saying you don't know who Kelis is. Google before speaking, Anna! And she obviously has the better song. Drake's is too slow, and Katy's is too autotuned (though her's is good too). Maybe I just don't give a sh*t about her? And I don't wanna waste my precious time by searching for something I'm not going to need in my life. Who's the dumbass now?

    None,they all suck. Drake has got no emotions in is voice (something like Lil Wayne,only worse),and he uses AutoTune and I kinda hate modern rap. (ICP and Nas are my favorite). Katy Perry uses AutoTune, because she can't f*cking sing and her music makes no sense and again,it's targeted to mindless teens who will buy anything with dance-pop sound. And I don't know who the hell is Kelis. You just showed how dumb you are by saying you don't know who Kelis is. Google before speaking, Anna! And she obviously has the better song.
