This sounds like Taylor Swift on drugs.

Seems like I just listened to another song as I absolutely lovee it. Surely not her best work, but it's very catchy and I see myself playing this a lot.

I was expecting worse while reading y'all comments but it's actually really good! :o I just hate the mellow build up before the hook, it kinda ruins the mood for me as I think the whole song should've remained uptempo but other than that, I'm good! It's very P!nk, unlike the previous single.

I like this on first listen, and I bet it'll get better as it grows on me.

She has lost every single modicum of excitement for me. I find her new songs so middle of the road and dull I just can't.

Give me U + ur hand or just like a pill or party or so what or don't bother.

So far the 80's electro/rock part got me interested as the rest of the song sounds half finished to my ears, she drops the F word and trying to keep the pace but I think the problem with this one is due to its relatively low tempo! This should have been more harder and faster and less sugary...

Despite P!nk's incredibly huge talent, her whole discography is a bit average at best xD

i'll just say this... her highs are better than her relative lows. she knows who she is, and i feel her 93.33333% of the time.

Just Like a Pill is one of my favorites by her... but is it so otherworldly standout incredible on a pop song level? No. It's solid - and was there when i needed it most. And for me, she does this kind of thing a lot. She's the uber-vocalist who doesn't try too hard, and just does her thing. sometimes it exceeds expectations, sometimes it appeals to the (...) common denominator. but i always *believe* it. that's key.

I kind of like it but I wouldn't go out of my way to play it. I feel like the verses are the best part of the song and by the time the pre-chorus kicks in it turns into a more predictable P!nk midtempo, which annoyed me slightly. She's had a lot worse than this but What About Us stays in rotation for now.

This is a cute opener. Better than AWAWA imo. I don't think this is single material, or even meant to be. I find it interesting because it seems to mix the old pop-rock P!nk with the more mellow P!nk of WAU (in the verses). Nothing amazing. But it's catchy.
