  1. I LOVE the song. The video is fine, either way - welcome back Elena!

  2. That video is basically identical to New Love.
  3. The video is not good but I’ll forgive it since apparently this was a last minute single change from Let It Die.

  4. Whew! Okay, exceeding my expectations with this massive bop. Take my wig Ellie! I echo that the adlibs and final chorus vocals are just heavenly. I'm not even mad at the Big Sean verse because it actually works?
  5. Absolutely phenomenal video. The BUDGET.

    ALSO 'Saviour' on the chalk board... the album name?

  6. Yeah that’s one of her best videos in a while.

    It also made me realize I’ve never known what Big Sean actually looks like ddddd.

  7. There are a lot of hints about the album tracks on the chalk board but not the album title itself.
  8. Meh. Song is a 7/10 and the video suffers from the same random energy of the ones from the previous era. At least it's not as diabolical as Hate Me.

  9. Oh wow, this a surprise. Not a masterpiece by any stretch, but probably one of her most solid singles in... almost a decade? Shockingly, I think the Big Sean feature works really well - it's dextrous, breaks the slight repetitiveness of the song, and sets up a nice little crescendo for the second chorus/bridge.

    The video is :shrug:

    But yeah, overall a lot better than it had any right to be. Her and Tove Lo are suddenly somehow operating in the same lane, let's hope she keeps that momentum going.

  10. There is some nice imagery in the video here and there but I have absolutely no fucking idea what's going on.

  11. Whoever chose her looks, and especially did her hair, should be fired! That said, even better hairstyles and outfits couldn’t save that music video!

    I’m really hoping there’s a solo version.
  12. Aren't you always!
  13. This is basic...Big Sean's part is actually the stand out here..Super faceless and you can tell it's old

  14. Actually no. I prefer the duet version of Hangin' On, despite almost always not liking features. I'm just picky, I suppose!
    It's not relevant to this thread, but I also prefer the duet version of Kylie's "All I See", Maroon 5's "If I Never See Your Face Again", the double feature version of Major Lazer's "All My Love" among others.
  15. No idea what’s going on in the video, but had this on repeat all day.
    Added to Radio 2 B list.

    I actually think Big Sean makes the song way better.
  17. Sounds great turned up loud in the car on a hot summers day.

    I need a solo version of this now! Since when was Big Sean relevant again? Also the video was kind of giving me St Vincent's latest era n n.

  19. This is insanely catchy. Exactly what she needed right now. I also loved the last album so maybe I’m an anomaly but I agree with everything everyone has said. It’s refreshing to see, what would normally be the outro, in the middle. Great track.
