    Sounds pretty good - and more important, doesn't sound like generic dance music which is a bonus.

    I feel like he's left it a bit late.

    I love little Aston so hope it's a success.

    It sounds pretty good from that snippet, but I get the feeling radio won't care about him.

    Sounds awful judging from the snippet.

    Sounds really close to the Nathan Sykes lane. Kind of surprised this is actually coming now. The JLS breakup popped into my head for some reason the other day and I was wondering why his solo attempt never launched.

    Perhaps the delay will prove to be a good idea given how quickly JLS faded. Looks like a pretty different image in that clip.

    I quite like it, but I can't see it doing much chart wise.

    Wow that's awful, it's like a rip-off of Uptown Funk without any of the catchiness and Aston's voice doesn't suit the song.
     
  9. Re: Aston Merrygold - "Get Stupid" + Debut Solo Album Discussion Thread

    So the Mall-budget Uptown Funk then.
     
  10. Re: Aston Merrygold - "Get Stupid" + Debut Solo Album Discussion Thread

    Not a fan of the song at all, the video's ok - Aston sells it well and looks good but the song's too weak to be saved!

    It's like a hybrid of Blurred Lines/Uptown Funk.

    I think it has potential that Aston will never reach with it.

    Absolutely horrific.
     
  13. Words cannot adequately describe what I just sat through. Quite possibly the worst pile of shite I have ever been exposed to. Everything is hideous.

    So naturally, this is going to Number One because the British GP have a habit of sending utter dross to #1.
     
  14. What has he done to himself....?!? That's 4 minutes of my life I'm not getting back.

    I was expecting something edgy. This is like he's trying to be a watered down UK version of Bruno Mars.

    Don't get me started on that hair!

    Why on earth would you expect that?!
     
  16. Hahaha. So true.
     
  17. Now I know how Natalia Kills felt. I mean if I was married to Bruno Mars.
     
  18. Sure it's derivative and uninteresting, but it's catchy and he sold it reasonably well. Maybe I'd feel different if I had been following pop when JLS were around.
     
  19. That Riddler/Edward Nigma rhyme has me cringing.
     
  20. My word, he's just exhausting. Everything is so try-hard - the hair, the styling, the singing, the dancing, the camera-flirting. If he toned it down about five notches (and threw in a chorus), it would be a bit easier to handle.

    As it stands, Nathan from The Wanted is winning the ex-boyband-member-that-everybody-forgot-about-gone-solo-with-added-horns battle.
