    Confidently subdued.

    I'm only a little annoyed, because if anyone could get a song over 3:00 to be hammered on streaming and radio, it's Ariana, but it does have a strong beginning, middle, and end, so I can't complain.

  2. Not me thinking "Sylvia Plath" was a position from the Kama Sutra.

  3. Sounds like a breezy early autumn track so, perfect to these ears. Ariana hit it out of the park again.

  4. On first listen, it's cute. It reminds me of Sometimes, actually (minus that incredible bridge, of course). Whoever said fall vibes was right - it's breezy & relaxed. Not sure how anyone could be blown away by it, it's your usual 7/10 bop. The slight reverb on her vocals is really nice. As usual, I'm sure there will be even better on the album.

  5. Agreed. It’s cute, she sounds gorgeous as always and I’ll bop with the rest but it feels like more of the same.

  6. I’m not sure this is as instant for me as I wanted it to be. It’s very laid back, I like the melody but I wanted... more.

    It’s a little bit too “from the school of Scooter” when I know she’s capable of ending my life with the right collaborators.

  7. It’s a song.
     
  8. She still can't lip sync for her life but it's a cute video and I want Joan as my mum.
     
  9. Yeah that is the only thing that bothers me in the song, I can't figure out the lyrics not only in the chorus. I mean sure, we have a lyric video but it would be nice to actually understand the song without it. Other than that, its a good little bop.

    Another victory for miss Grande

  13. After repeated listens, this is really great. I checked out after the run of mediocre singles post-thank u, next but she’s reigned me back in.

    Also she’s finally gone easy on the spray tan, let’s celebrate that.

  14. Same old reasonably pleasant Ariana song in her comfort zone.
     
  15. I had it in my head that it would be a ballad or something more of a risk. But hey, I instantly really like it.

    Also, when she’s not in full pony-tail, she always gives me major Rose Byrne’s Little Sis vibes.

    Under 3 minutes though... Did Stefani put her up to this?

  18. The way she said I Write Sins Not Tragedies with the intro chsickdishs.

    Anyway it's cute but the album better be more interesting.
     
  19. It's a shame that now when I see music videos or films etc based in the Whitehouse, instead of thinking it's powerful or glamorous, I think "ew Tr*mp lived there". Hopefully that will wear off.

    I like the song. It's not a massive game changer, but it's enough of a switch-up from the sound she had in 2018 and 19 to keep my interest.

  20. Same thoughts here. It’s just Ariana doing what Ariana does and then it ends.
