‘Fireworks’ Face-Off: Katy Perry vs. Drake vs. Kelis

By: / August 26, 2010

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!
