    I have full confidence in her and her team to actually release a great song if (when?) she ever decides to properly launch R9.

    This one, one the other hand, is merely serviceable. When did pop girls lose the ability to produce a soundtrack song that does more than just clear out the theater?

  2. It’s just ok, which of course is very much not ok.

  3. For an event, this is quite the non event...

  5. Does the fact we hate this mean it will be a massive smash?! Hmmst

    This is the American Oxygen of the era - something something will see the harvest.
  7. It's just such a weird low-key approach. Like, when I heard "tribute to Chadwick", a ballad made sense, but this is a lullaby. If it was more celebratory, spiritual or even reminiscent it would work. But currently it's too generic to really tap into any feeling.

  8. That song was great, however.

    but thanks to Rih, I‘ve been spinning the Xtina song a lot today.
  9. I prefer the Geri song to either, and I don't even like it that much.

  10. She sounds great but the song goes nowhere and doesn't have much replay value to me. I wish the buildup led to something towards the end.
  11. It seriously lacks structure, momentum or build-up, it just trods along in a repetitive cycle that does not excite, engage or affect. And it ends, just when you think there will be some sort of climax. It's about 1 minute too short had there been a bridge, climax or conclusion, which... is not there, so now it feels about 3 minutes too long...

  12. Funny how many friends were sharing the teaser on their socials and today everybody is just dead silent. I just gave it another chance and it really is a dumpster fire.

  14. Actually quite crushed. It’s not awful, it’s just not a return. What a massive let down

  15. I’m… on the fence.

  16. This sounds like a demo. That vocal production sounds so rough (way too autotuned).

  17. I love that Tems Bebe Rexha'd her vocals into the song a la The Monster.
  18. The money must've been really good... ddd
