I Want My Hoodie Back” – Kid Travis vs. “Dive” – Cypress & Co. x Matt Sperrazza

“I Want My Hoodie Back,” the sixth selection from Kid Travis‘ “Strawberry Skies” album, defeated Kate Vogel‘s “The Truth” in the Sweet Sixteen and features smooth, vibey R&B vocal runs aplenty. If you want to like Chris Brown, but you can’t support Chris Brown as a person, give this track a listen. Nashville-based artists and Belmont University alumni Cypress & Co. and Matt Sperrazza‘s “Dive” defeated They Kiss‘s “This Love Is Real” last round. The song features modern pop production and introspective lyrics, and it manages to be a bit dark without being completely somber in a track that gives a definite nod to Twenty One Pilots.

Not Used to Hope” – Hartley vs. “Lemonade” – Alexia

“Not Used to Hope” comes off Hartley‘s debut EP “No One.” It’s a hazy, mellow, and relaxing lo-fi indie song that defeated Grace Davies‘ “Just A Girl” last round. “Lemonade” is the debut single for New York City’s Alexia. The funky pop song features dreamy production and a relentless bass line. It defeated Rich Caviar‘s “81” in the Sweet Sixteen.

Monster Squad (Love So Crazy)” – Sam The Astronaut vs. “Strong Enough” – Jude The Obscure

The second song from Sam The Astronaut‘s 2020 EP “High For You,” “Monster Squad (Love So Crazy)” exemplifies the brand of “anthemic, West Coast alt-pop” the Vancouver duo is quickly becoming known for. Last round, it defeated Dancing On Tables‘ “Riviera.” With “Strong Enough,” Jude The Obscure channels the smooth, groovy-yet-chill jazz-rap coming out of the UK currently being championed by artists like Loyle Carner and Tom Misch. His debut single shows excellent musicianship and an exciting glimpse at what’s to come. In the Sweet Sixteen, it defeated Lita‘s “Ciao Ciao.”

Moonstruck” – DJ Wei x Shingo Sekiguchi vs. “Neighbourhood” – DC

Malaysian label exec and artist DJ Wei teamed up with Shingo Sekiguchi on “Moonstruck,” a vibey, jazzy instrumental piece featuring squeaky-clean electric guitar, a fat bass, and exciting electric piano riffs. Last round, it defeated “Jumpin’ In The Rain” by badmonsham. “Neighbourhood” is UK rapper DC‘s breakthrough hit, having already reached the million-stream threshold on Spotify. The single about hustling hard and putting money before fame became his first single of 2020 when it was released in May. It defeated LLusion and mxmtoon‘s “walk but in a garden” in the Sweet Sixteen.
