  1. I wouldn't say so, but at the same time it wouldn't sound out of place on reputation, so maybe you're right.

  3. I love Never Be The Same. The production of the song makes it effective and melancholic.

    “Suddenly I’m on my feet, you’re all I need babe.” She’s just like one of us...

    She’s doing the Bangerz route I guess. Serve the catchy first single and then the emoshyuenal ballad for the second. Ignore the rest of the hype tracks released so far but leaving OMG off the album is criminal, homophobic, misogynistic, transphobic etc.

  4. It's great for everyone involved that she went solo, these high pitched breathy coos on Never Be The Same would literally ruin an otherwise solid 5H track but in context they're somewhat almost endearing. I probably won't listen to it much. Real Friends is that somber breezy over before you know it bop tho.

    I haven't liked anything she's released at all including Havana. The new songs are pretty much the quality output I expect from someone like her, but of the two I think "Real Friends" is the better track?

    Her voice is quite annoying on the other song.
  6. Song called "Into It" registered.

    Produced by Frank Dukes. Also credited: Camila, Ryan Tedder, Justin Tranter, and Lou Bell.
  7. Both songs are... fine.

    But 'Crying in the Club' and 'OMG' were better. So, that's something.
  8. I really like Never Be The Same, but Real Friends is one of the most boring songs I've heard in a long time.

    I actually prefer Real Friends. It feels a bit catchier on first listen and more genuine. Never Be The Same is decent but I don't really like the lyrics.

    Never Be The Same is...fine, but it seems like a real misstep in terms of following up Havana. I'd actually say that OMG is the perfect follow-up, but I guess that's not happening.

    And I don't even mind that the album is 10 tracks, but why in the fuck would they tag on that useless radio edit of Never Be The Same? Production is exactly the same, there are no extra verses or a feature or whatever, it's the same damn song with ONE LINE changed.

    What actually would've been a good idea is to have included the proper solo version of Havana that she's performed every single time. Dumb move.
  11. Something about the chorus of “Real Friends” sounds so familiar. I thought it was a Nick Jonas or Charlie Puth track, maybe even Bieber, but I can’t place it.
  12. It's 8 am here and while listening to this, took me three times to understand I hadn't set up an alarm but that it was randomly incorporated in the song.

    It's meh, I'm going back to sleep.
  13. These both sound like streaming monster smashes to me, "Real Friends" probably moreso (even if I find it just serviceable).

    The three summer 2016 tracks they're seemingly cutting from the album have 350m+ Spotify plays between them. Don't get this move at all.

  14. I dont understand yall.. if she threw on i have questions, crying in the club, omg, etc you would all be complaining about getting literally 4 new songs on album release date because of epics inability to pay for more than 10 tracks an album.
    You complain if she's apparently riding a wave trying to get a hit.
    Then you complain when she releases something personal that she really likes.

    The only thing I agree about is it should be more than 10 tracks but thats epics fault

  15. It's the fact that there's a radio edit of a song already on the album that most of us are annoyed about. A solo version of Havana would be a better idea or another song instead of rather useless radio edit.... it's frustrating.

  16. Could just be like the Maroon 5 announcement that didn't have the other singles on the album originally. Hopefully the good sis has a gay in this thread.
  17. The chorus of Never Be The Same has my 16 year old self shook
  18. Thought this was a Mel C feat. Lisa Left Eye sapphic shoutout and felt my heart swell for a moment.
    Island and stereosalt like this.
  19. I like both songs even if I feel like they're too long, but Havanas they are not. Real Friends is that sadbop and Never Be The Same's beat reminds me of a Post song.
  20. For those curious, Real Friends' credits were updated.

    The song was co-written by her team for this album, alongside Billy Walsh, and as well produced again by Frank Dukes. What Frank said about doing the whole album is likely happening.
