  1. Why am I hearing hints of Sophie Ellis-Bextor in her delivery on Not Sayin'?
     
  2. Indeed why.

  3. Great promo for the US market. Yeah!

    I have read on Wikipedia some critics compare it to Ed Sheeran's Shape of you, What the hell?
     
  4. Don’t Call Me Up is literally Cheap Thrills version 4.0.

  5. Has anyone recreated/got the uncropped full pic cover version that's used for the CD/Vinyl in HQ?
     
  6. It’s on discogs I think.
     
  7. I’m liking this album more than I intended to
     
  8. She tends to sound like she could do with an oxygen tank on stage with her. Bless her. Still a huge bop.

    Don't know if that's new for this performance or not but I really liked the phone ringing bit they've added before the dance break.

  9. Yeah she needs to work on her technique when performing live. She hasn’t always sounded like this though I think it’s just that song.
     
  10. Not Sayin’ really should be a single at some point . It’s been on repeat for me since the album came out.

  12. I kinda think they should give Ring Ring a proper push in the US, it's definitely her best chance at another hit there. It pisses me off that it's so underappreciated. Big tune.

  13. It's the first time and I loved that bit too! And the bath!

    Her voice has been off for a while and she's been really ill.

    We Don't Say is a bop, why is no one else highlighting that? The album is pretty strong actually.
     
  15. You can hear the difference between the Teen Choice Awards performance and these for example. She can decently perform the song.



    For someone with anxiety to be out there performing like she does and to crowds like these is really inspiring.

  16. I think nerves has a lot to do with it. The atmosphere of the TRNSMT performance with the crowd singing the song back is great.
     
  17. Yeah I’m terms of performance she’s definitely gotten more confident, I’m proud of her.
     
  18. Music video for OK (Anxiety Anthem):
