Single Cover Diva-Off, Part Deux: Kelly Rowland Vs. M.I.A.

Becky Bain / June 18, 2010

We’ve got another exciting round of Single Cover Art-Off, with two musical acts pitted against one another for the second time. Kelly won the last round of our single cover art competition against M.I.A.—but will she be able to triumph again? Jump below to judge for yourself which pop-dance diva released the better cover art for their singles this week.

Kelly Rowland – “Rose Colored Glasses”

Kelly-Rowland3“Rose Colored Glasses” will be Kelly’s next single for Top 40 radio, while “Grown Woman” will be marketed towards hip-hop and R&B stations. (Check out the cover art for that single over here.) We like the black-and-white simplicity of this cover, although when you’re song is called “Rose Colored Glasses” and you have neither color nor glasses on your single cover, well, that seems fairly odd.

M.I.A. – “Steppin Up”

For M.I.A.’s third single from /\/\ /\ Y /\, we’ve got more of the same poor Photoshop skills present on her album cover and other single cover art. At least she’s got a theme going?

So who painted the prettier picture for their songs, Kelly or Maya? Leave your vote in the comments!
