  1. Once "Break the Rules" becomes a radio hit according to plan y'all will pretend you were never writing it off.
     
  2. it's still 50-50 but yeah probably

    Most of the intelligent posters around here don't do this.
     
  4. It will always be a 7/10 at best.

    I wrote off "Break The Rules" the moment I heard it. I don't care about how well it won't do.
     
  6. The punk thing isn't totally shelved by the way, the influence is still very much there.
     
  7. Punk in pop music is usually bratty loud pop i.e. Shampoo. I think I Love It is quite punky, if only because it's loud and obnoxious and substitutes abrasive guitars for abrasive synthetics.

  8. Not at all, I genuinely dislike the song. It's so mediocre for Charli's usual standards. Put it up against Stay Away & it's a total joke.

    If anything, I'd rather her add more of the "punk" material to the album & avoid watering down down the tracklist with songs like Break The Rules.

    Break the Rules is amazing though.
     
  10. I love Break The Rules...oop.
     
  11. Charlie really reminds me Of Maggie De Monde from Scarlett Fantastic from the 80's No Memory fame

  12. I've never liked "Break the Rules" either. I'm talking specifically of the people saying its chance of making an impact on radio is up. Despite finding it mediocre as a song I do think its radio-readiness is quite clear and that the album pushback is therefore not that confounding.

    In this commercial climate it's not at all unreasonable for the label to hope for two hit singles before the album's release date, especially if one of those singles is already available on a successful soundtrack to a summer blockbuster. "Boom Clap," having gone #1 on US pop radio, probably did exceed their expectations as far as audience penetration goes, and it's taking its sweet time to depart from heavy rotation at most stations. The timing for the "Break the Rules" radio rollout is reasonable and stations will probably be receptive enough to at least make it a moderate hit. Given all that, it isn't really that horrifying that the album was delayed... and by what, a month? This is clearly not becoming some sort of Sky Ferreira situation. It's not even becoming a Becky G situation. The album will probably come out with few issues and do just fine.
     
  13. I do love Break The Rules but I'll be extremely surprised if it has any kind of success in the US at this stage.
     
  14. Not even joking the best move would be to push Superlove in the US. C'mon Charli!!! Get that Popjustice.
     
  15. I like you.
     
  16. TWO months. sad face
     
  17. Watch this leak in the next few days, just to make things worse.
     
  18. I heard SuperLove in Target last week, and it just felt so right.

    (I didn't recognize it until the chorus, but it did make me download the song!)
     
  19. SuperLove would've probably been a better single now than when it was originally released.

    'Boom Clap' just hit a new peak at #8 on the Hot 100.

    It's definitely a gamble, but I do think the label has the right idea with the pushback.
