I think it's my 11.
Well, they're both 10's to me.
But Up was one of the first songs I loved by them, so I'm okay with it winning this Chasing Lights battle again. Sorry!

Hazey Says | I used to think the remix was better, what a trash opinion that was because you lose the power from the vocals, especially Vanessa’s verse which pairs so perfectly with Frankie. Also, that production is like an updated version of something the Supremes would be rolling in with and I love that infinitely! (10)
After some fan favorite album tracks, it’s interesting to note that this was released as the last single from Chasing Lights because it was discovered to be a fan favorite. Makes you wonder why artists can’t do this on every album.
The single version was a slight remix that fans were on either side of fence about, however the Cahill remix did get some unexpected love.
The overall narrative of the last rate was that this should’ve been a huge anthem with the general public and not overlooked or made a single so late into the album’s campaign. Comments seemed to love how sassy it is and appreciate the kind of attitude the track goes for. Mollie’s opening verse was praised by several voters, widely considered one of her best moments in the band’s discography.
@MilesAngel (11) - I had to give my 11 to a song from my favourite Saturdays album. I was surprised to see Work not get any 11's in the last rate, and it definitely deserves one, so that helped with my decision. But I've always loved Work for its lyrics and its sweeping production. I really love that string flourish at the end. You know you gotta Work!
Unfortunately, nobody joined in with you take make it multiple 11's, but at least you represented!
@Shockbox (10) - If this is the single version then make it a 9, the album version is far superior. Also considered this is my 11, purely for Mollie's iconic note on SNT.
You must mean this:
@saviodxl (10) - This moment lives in my mind rent free:
@Sally_Harper (10) - Absolute banger. PUT YOUR BOOTS ON BABYYYYYYY. I still love the video too.
@daninternational (10) - Pop songs called Work are always 10/10. Prove me wrong.
Rihanna, Ciara and Missy, Fifth Harmony (I know it's not exact but close enough!) yep it checks out!
@Phonetics Girl (10) - Once again, I was blindsided by the different single version but actually both are golden-plated infectious capitalism bops I can never get enough of. Pump me full of it!
@Scaper (10) - The single mix is a perfect example of one minor tweak robbing a song of what made it amazing. I love the fake strings and synths on this but the single mix drowns them out with unnecessary claps and drums.
@JakobVision22 (8) - My favorite song from an album that isn't exactly my favorite. Even though this song didn't chart as well as the others did, I feel like it sound-wise set the girls up for where they would go for their next releases.
Yikes to the first sentence, considering the score.
@Ezz (7) - Feels a bit more generic than some of the first album tracks.
@louciano (5.25) - Never understood the love for this one. It just doesn't do anything for me and is generally forgettable.
We have quite the battle going for the ultimate shoutout queen trophy, considering Mollie and Una were tied before Una pulled back ahead after Ego. Now they're tied again as Mollie's note helped her to 8 shoutouts compared to Vanessa's 4. (Everyone else got at least 1)
This edition's Top Four includes 2015's
No hints needed anymore. Whatever goes will also take an album with them. What is #4 tomorrow?
