Battle of the New Singles: Chris vs. Iggy vs. Kendrick vs. Zayn

Just as Spring arrived the week sprung on music lovers some of the season’s highest anticipated releases from the likes of serial hitmakers Kendrick Lamar, Zayn, Iggy Azalea, and David Guetta (featuring Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne).  Then, as if the overflow of back to back drops from the aforementioned weren’t enough, Chris Brown unleashed his new tune, ‘Privacy’ (believed to be the first single from his forthcoming opus ‘Heartbreak on a Full Moon’).

Critically, most of the new songs are getting thumbs up from listeners – a review we at TGJ HQ share. Commercially, on the other hand, Lamar’s new tune – ‘Heart IV’ – is the only one of the wave of new releases to crack the top 10 on the iTunes sales charts [where it sits at #1 as of time reported] while Azalea’s, ‘Mo Bounce,’ has bounced to #1 on Youtube’s streaming charts.

As we wait to see how well all the competition fares toward their Hot 100 placements on the refreshed Billboard Hot 100 in two weeks, we turn to you – That Grape Juice faithful – to ask:

Who gets your pick for best release of the week?

Serving as evidence of the high anticipation for its yet-titled parent album, the follow-up to 2015’s ‘To Pimp a Butterfly,’ the ringing response to ‘Heart IV’ is due in great part to social media buzz as listeners wonder who the emcee is dissing in the fiery tune:
