Battle of Same Song Title: Mariah Carey vs Enrique Iglesias / Bryan Adams vs Whitney Houston

Two divas are battling with two male singers, in the two battles. Let’s check who wins below:

Mariah Carey vs Enrique Iglesias
“Hero”

This “Hero” song of Mariah Carey has been one of her most popular and one of her numerous number one singles in the US. It was also a hit in several countries. It is an inspirational song which inspired many and often sang in singing competitions. It was covered by some artists too.

Enrique Iglesias had his “Hero” song too. However, it is not about being heroic to some people, rather, about being a hero for the girl you love” It was a big hit after reaching number one worldwide and top 5 in some countries including a number 3 peak in the US.

Mariah Carey- Hero
Melody and Lyrics- 4.25 / Success- 3.5= 7.75

Winner: Enrique Iglesias won against Mariah Carey with a small gap in this “Hero” song battle.

Bryan Adams vs Whitney Houston
“Run To You”

Bryan Adam’s “Run to You” is one of his earliest hits. The rock song went to the top 10 in the US while it failed the top ten in UK as it settled at number 11. The song though is about infidelity, like choosing the other woman over the real partner. Not a good message for me.

Whitney Houston had this track from her “The Bodyguard” soundtrack album as a released single. It had charted moderately in the charts but it was a very recognized Whitney Houston song. It is one of the most sang Whitney Houston songs in singing competitions. It is a love song in R&B and pop mood.

Verdict:
Bryan Adams- Run to You
Melody and Lyrics- 1.75 / Success- 3.0= 4.75

Whitney Houston- Run to You
Melody and Lyrics- 2.5 / Success- 3.0= 5.5
