Who Sang It Better: G.R.L vs. Britney Spears for "Tik Tik Boom"

It’s another round of “Who Sang It Better” and today it’s a track titled “Tik Tik Boom” originally by the so-called new Pussycat Dolls, G.R.L, against the version of Britney Spears from her latest album, Britney Jean.


G.R.L. was created by choreographer/director Robin Antin as a reboot of sorts of the Pussycat Dolls, which disbanded in 2010. They are consisted of Lauren Bennett (of Paradiso Girls fame and was featured on LMFAO’s smash hit “Party Rock Anthem”), Simone Battle (of X Factor USA fame), Paula Van Oppen (of So You Think You Can Dance fame), up-and-coming songstress Natasha Slayton and “Get Down” songstress (and Bates Motel actress), Emmalyn Estrada. A demo of the track surfaced online after they recorded it months ago, and eventually got scrapped from their record.

Check out G.R.L.’s version below:


The fate of the song continues as the song has now passed to Britney Spears and eventually got on the official tracklist for her new record, Britney Jean. The song was totally redone (and with collaboration of T.I.) while the lyric of the first and second verses including the chorus remained the same.

Check out Britney Spears’ version:


The vibes from the two versions are totally different, having G.R.L’s version with a Pussycat Dolls signature vibe, while Britney’s definitely a club-banger, makes you wanna grind to every beat.

So, who sang it better? My vote goes for Britney Spears’ version. It suits her vocally, the beat was far better than G.R.L’s version and it’s really something to groove on.
What do you think? Who sang Tik Tik Boombetter?

Check out the lyrics of Tik Tik Boom below:

[Verse 1]
You’ve got a sex siren in your face
Want somebody on it
Want somebody on it
Want somebody on it
Talk dirty to me baby
Every time I want it
Every time I want it
Every time I want it
Hush and no more games
No more of the same things
Just do it like you should should
Make me spin his name
And give me your best aim
Tell me can you tame this good good
[Chorus]
Baby make me tick tick tick tick tick tick boom
Tick tick tick tick tick tick
Baby make me tick tick tick tick tick tick boom
Not too slow, not too quick
Baby make me tick tick boom
[Verse 2]
Shut your mouth, lock it up
Why you wanna fly on it?
Why you wanna fly on it?
Why you wanna fly on it?
Your turn, switch it up
Let me get up on it
Let me get up on it
Let me get up on it
Hush and no more games
No more of the same things
Just do it like you should should
Make me spin his name
And give me your best aim
Tell me can you tame this good good
[Chorus]
Baby make me tick tick tick tick tick tick boom
Tick tick tick tick tick tick
Baby make me tick tick tick tick tick tick boom
Not too slow, not too quick
Baby make me tick tick boom
Baby make me tick tick boom…
Hush and no more games
No more of the same things
Just do it like you should should
Let me spin your name
And give me your best aim
Tell me can you tame this good good
[Chorus]
Baby make me tick tick tick tick tick tick boom
Tick tick tick tick tick tick
Baby make me tick tick tick tick tick tick boom
Not too slow, not too quick
Baby make me tick tick boom
[Bridge]
We?re going hard tonight, make me lose my mind
I?m giving you the way, better take your time
We?re going hard tonight, make me lose my mind
In love the stars are blind, take your time
Baby make me tick tick tick tick tick tick boom
Tick tick tick tick tick tick
Baby make me tick tick tick tick tick tick boom
Not too slow, not too quick
Baby make me tick tick boom
Baby make me tick tick tick tick tick tick boom
Tick tick tick tick tick tick
Baby make me tick tick tick tick tick tick boom
Not too slow, not too quick
Baby make me tick tick boom
