Battle of Same Song Title: Leona Lewis vs Pharrell Williams / Black Eyed Peas vs Simple Plan

The first battle is between a female and a male singer, while the second one was two groups. Check the battles below:

Leona Lewis vs Pharrell Williams
“Happy”
Leona Lewis came back after the success of her album “Spirit”. This song was the first single for her album “Echo” and actually, the title of the song is opposite from its meaning. It’s about wanting to be happy while you are in the midst of sadness. The song went to the top 10 in many countries, though it failed to match the success of “Bleeding Love” as it only peaked at 32 in Billboard Hot 100.

 

Pharrell finally reached his peak of popularity with this song which was used for the film “Despicable Me 2”. The song which is plainly a happy song went to number one worldwide. Perhaps it success was due to its positibe sound and message. In its music video featured some celebrities.

 

Verdict:
Leona Lewis- Happy
Melody and Lyrics- 3.75 / Success- 3.0= 6.75

Pharrell Williams- Happy
Melody and Lyrics- 3.75 / Success- 4.75= 8.5

Winner: The lead was quite wide and it is clear to see that Pharrell Williams takes the “Happy” song battle.

Black Eyed Peas vs Simple Plan
“Shut up”
Black Eyed Peas gained worldwide success with “Where’s the Love?” So it is not easy to match it by its second single. The song may have failed to chart in the US, but it has been an international success especially in Europe where it went to number one in most countries.

 

Simple Plan released this single for their second LP “Still Not Getting Any”, and to be honest, I always associate this to the Black Eyed Peas song. The song was a modest hit worldwide.

 

Verdict:
Black Eyed Peas- Shut Up
Melody and Lyrics- 3.25 / Success- 3.75= 7.0

Simple Plan- Shut Up
Melody and Lyrics-2.75 / Success- 2.25= 5.0

Winner: Obviously, Black Eyed Peas won with 2.0 gap of points.
