  1. I'm digging the bridge tho!

    Strawberry ice cream in Malibu
    Don't act like we didn't do that shit too
    You're trading jackets like we used to do

    Play her piano, but she doesn't know
    That I was the one who taught you Billy Joel
    A different girl now, but there's nothing new

  2. There are some seriously awful lyrics in this new song. The shoehorned in mentions of Uptown Girl, Glee and Billy Joel are total clunkers. I know she’s inspired by Taylor’s writing style but there is a craft to it. It takes some finesse and skill...which are clearly lacking here.

  4. After a couple of listens I definitely still prefer Drivers License, but maybe it’s a grower.
     
  5. The other girl in the music video is more interesting than her.

  6. Please tell me that the whole album won't be about the same theme.
     
  7. I think I need something better than this coming from her. Deja vu is absolutely fine and it seems cohesive with Drivers License, I would even say that it's more interesting that Licence, but I'm still yet to root for her.

  10. #15 on Spotify with only a half-day of tracking. This has really grown on me with repeated plays and I’m hoping it turns into another hit for her.

  11. I have a weird sense about her that I half enjoy the songs but it all seems very copy and paste but the printers playing up.

    The bridge sounds good but it’s a bit jarring that it basically just repeats the lyrics of the rest of the song

  13. Nn drivers license: Lorde's revenge is a boot for me.

  14. I like how she belts out the song around the second chorus

    And that bridge is very 'successful pop music bridges 101'

  15. I high-key think this is going to be the Song of the Summer.

  16. This is amazing. Surprised that it’s proving so divisive!

  17. The first verse feels so close to being a sample of No Surprises by Radiohead.

  18. This actually just gets better on repeat! At first it just gave off Drivers License Pt. 2 vibes, but it differentiates itself with each listen. The Lorde comparisons are doing a bit too much either way, to be honest.

  19. Wait my stan card has been found titanium plated. She’s right and she should say it!
