^ Good art needs no explanation. If it needs explaining then there is no point to it.

Dua is not a niche artist. She won't become a big superstar with an artsy-fartsy music video like this.

She basically tried to copy Christine & the Queens. :-?

I don’t like the song and I don’t like the video. Mainly because the timing is off with some of the dancing. It bothers me.

Stromae was part of the video creation, imagine a collab between king and queen of pop :cry: :cry: :cry:

+1. If this was for ‘Garden’ it would’ve fitted much better.

Garden is s**t that would've been better off the album.

I'm glad IDGAF got a great video. Simple concept and fun (though not perfectly realized - too many times people go through each other and are not that well lined up).

I like it, it's a pretty good video. To say it's a rip-off of Christine & The Queens is a bit of a stretch. Reminds me thematically of Ciara's 'Like a Boy'.

It's doing really well too, it's gonna hit 6,000,000 views in 24hrs.

I can say the same about a pop throwaway fast-food song which IDGAF really is

She is such a hit-and-miss for me, very inconsistent. I LOVE Hotter Than Hell, Be The One and Homesick, but just heard this for the first time and, just like New Rules, doesn't do anything for me. Watch it smash the charts now though :lol:

Aah! Makes sense, the video looks like a Stromae video indeed. :)

Don't think it gonna really ''smash'', maybe a couple of weeks in the top 10 on the back of ''New Rules'' immense success and that's it

The video is alright. Not what I would have expected from the song's lyrics and Dua. It's a nice surprise. Don't think it has a high replay value though.

She's been really consistent for me. I like/love everything she's released.
I'd rank her singles:

01. Hotter Than Hell
02. Be The One
03. New Rules
04. Homesick
05. Last Dance
06. Lost In Your Light
07. Blow Your Mind (Mwah)
08. IDGAF
09. New Love

She’s been one of the most consistent artists for me in a very long time. I have major love for this girl but I just don’t like this song, probably my least favourite single of hers.
