Battle of the Beats: Selena Gomez vs Krewella – Come & Get It
Battle of the Beats is a new feature from Dancing Astronaut that pits two tracks that share the same title against one another to determine which production represents the name better. With the dance music community continually growing, producers, mashup artists and DJs alike constantly create new music, often of the same name. Now we are opening it up to our readers to weigh in on who’s rendition takes the proverbial cake.
Selena Gomez – Come & Get It
With rumors swirling that the world has Skrillex to thank for Selena Gomez’s new “baby dubstep” sound, we found it fitting for this Battle of the Beats to look at what else the former Disney star is borrowing from the EDM world. We didn’t have to look too hard. An oddly captivating blend of tribal drums, synth-backed bassline that does in fact sound a bit infantile and lyrics that seem torn between sweet as pie and all grown up collide on Selena’s “Come & Get It,” creating radio bliss for those that thought Taylor Swift’s “Trouble” was dubstep.
Krewella – Come & Get It
The Chicago trio is a little more blatant in their “Come & Get It,” but sneak in pockets of emotive lyrics between their confident commands. No tribal drums but a drum n’ bass beat punctuated with dubby breakdowns, the tune plays with tempo and intensity, balancing out the moments of grime with a piano vocal break and outro. Radio-ready for a different audience, Krewella’s “Come & Get It” has become one of their most recognizable tune.
So who’s “Come & Get It” is your favorite, the naughty/nice pop princess or the notorious bottle poppers?
