  1. We're not seriously going to pretend Gwen singing about Japanese girls as if they were her pets/fashion accessories wasn't just as hideous as this, are we?
  2. What exactly is that accent in the verses?

    This…isn’t good.

  3. Yeah, this is really not it. I thought she might do something at least mildly interesting with such a great sample, but she basically released a cover with terrible vocals and worse lyrics. How can you talk about wanting to 'release the music you've always wanted' etc. in every interview and then release a copy-and-paste of a 2001 song? The whole package is clearly a desperate attempt for US success.

    Bizarre choices all round, and that's before you deal with the blackfishing.
    I feel a bit bad for her because she clearly doesn't handle criticism well, but she is asking for it with this.

    I have no desire to ever listen to this again. Alexandra remains unbothered!

  4. Did anyone say that?

  5. Thinking back on it, the single might literally only have a shell life of about 1 week so I suppose the team decided that they would do anything to garner talks.

    I didn’t think they would do literally anything tho.

  7. It is kind of weird to really want her to be held accountable for cultural appropriation but then romanticising older examples of it and raising those artists up ddd the performative outrage jumped out.

  8. I can't bring myself to listen to the full thing or watch the video but from what I saw from clips on twitter it's trash just as I thought and very very cringe. Definition of delusions of grandeur.

    People saying her dancing is the only good thing about it and not really dd? Like yes she has the steps down but is she doing them well? No. All this effort to look black but she still has that white girl rhythm.

    I'm glad people are eating her up underneath that Capital tweet. I'm disgusted by all these media outlets promoting this shit, especially the American ones.
  9. And to think we even compared this kids bops disaster to Jojo, i’m so sorry my dear.

  11. This is just as lame and reductive a take as the tweet you quoted.

  12. I’m sure those 12 people regret the purchase.
  13. Jesy since the end of her stint with Little Mix:
  14. I don’t think anyone was doing that though. The tweet simply just pointed out that the quality of the materials put out by Gwen at least were far more easy on the ears than this.
  15. Jesy wishes she got that glow up dddd

  16. I can’t wait to see her try to do those vocal gymnastics live.

  18. For someone who can actually sing very well, that vocal take/mix is a choice.

    Stream the superior versions of Bad BOYZ.

  19. What sort of self sabotage is this?
