I was expecting something darker sounding for some reason. I actually like the Flo Rida part! Hope the video has lots of dancing!
 
Thanks for shouting over the end. Wankers.

But yes, quite good. Not amazing for me on first listen, but I'm sure it'll grow. The removal of 'be' from 'between' is quite annoying though!

No danger or this getting confused with a Leona song. Thankfully.

The beat actually reminded me a little of a sped-up Forgive Me.
A little, nothing distracting.
 
Got some things to say.

- Not what I expected (not in a good way).
- I don't like it but I don't hate it.
- It sounds outdated a bit (feels like a Steps track, eeew)
- I guess it's a grower (I hope so)
 
I think I'm disappointed because after the intro it feels very light, and I was expecting a heavier driven beat. Radio friendly, and I do like it, but by no means single of the year for me!
 
I did like it, but I think this is the type of song you'll go back to without knowing why exactly - like it a bit more, listen more - like it even more...before you know it you're in love.
 
I love that it shows off that she can sing without having to forget the melody.

There is a slight eighties vibe to it, which is a GOOD THING.
 
I think the song is okay. I think I need to hear it a few more times to appreciate it. But as of now, I think its alright. I'm not too amazed by it.

me too, I thought it was dark pop... more like Maneater, I'd say.
