Battle of the Bands: Bieber vs The Maine

Time for the next round of Battle of the Bands!

Here’s how it works: I’ll be posting two versions of the same song and after you give a listen to each, place your vote for your favorite and reason for the way you voted in the comments section.

The Battles take place on or around the 1st and 15th of each month, and the results will be posted on or around the 7th and 21st. As I only post Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays, the posting date will be closest to those dates as possible.

The other blogs participating in the Battle of the Bands are posting different battles (different songs), So once you’re done voting and commenting on my battle, take a moment to visit the other participants and vote & comment on their battles.  There are some really good battles going on!

The Song:  "Love Yourself "

Wikipedia tells us this: "Love Yourself" is a song recorded by Canadian singer Justin Bieber for his fourth studio album Purpose (2015). Bieber co-wrote the song with Ed Sheeran and Benny Blanco; the latter is also the producer.

"Love Yourself" was an international commercial success, reaching number one on the Canadian Hot 100, the US Billboard Hot 100 (where it became Bieber's third consecutive number-one in both countries), and the UK Singles Chart. "Love Yourself" also topped the charts in Australia, Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Sweden.

The First Contender: Justin Bieber

First, I know many of you don't like Bieber, simply because he is who he is.  So for this challenge, I want you to FORGET HIS NAME (for now). Call him Anonymous X (or whatever you want) and just LISTEN to the music.  Base your vote on that, please.

The Second Contender: The Maine

Who will you choose?

Alright now, it’s time to cast your vote! In the comments, please enter who you are voting for and why you chose them.  Stay tuned, results will be posted on or around the 21st!

And don’t forget to visit these other battles going on today!
