Coldplay don't own reverse narrative or filming in reverse, that technique had been used in film and music videos before them and has continued to be used after. Pretty sure they were inspired by The Pharcyde's iconic Drop music video themselves.

The main similarity is the use of an E30 BMW, but 80s German cars are super cool right now (and forever), so I'm not surprised Rita is driving one.

The video is nice and simple. Nothing particularly memorable, but the scene of Rita falling is cool and she looks great.

The song is generic, but I want Rita to succeed because of her relentless hustle and ability to create a brand without ever releasing much in the way of music.

Heard this on a Zara store and I instantly feel in love with it! The video is quite fun to watch too! Except the guy at the last scene looks like to be 15 yrs younger than Rita lol

Anyways, i seem to have a soft spot for rita! Since a few years ago she's more lovable and tolerable than RiRi ;)

Nice video and the song is a bop

This is so so poor, it sounds just like it's trying to be "Shape Of You" which just goes to show the lack of originality in both Sheeran and Ora.

This song really grew on me, I want Rita to succeed but I also would low-key find it hilarious if RO2 gets pushed back to 2018 or something :lol:

It's her biggest song since I Will Never Let You Down. For her standards (and the fact that she has only released one album nearly five years ago), I'd say it's smashing

I wished it would have flipped tbh. I like her music generally but this is almost unlistenable. The last thing she needs is an incentive to continue this half-assed, boring style of music.

It has grown on me, I think it's just uninspired though.

That being said though, the production is really top notch. The vocal mixing in particular is really polished.
