It's kinda like a hybrid of Elle King's Ex's and Oh's and Amelia Lily's underrated bop California.

The vocals sound a bit odd in the chorus and its like something that would come third in Eurovision: Your Country Needs You.

But it's ok.

It's not bad but it's very safe and 2009. Obviously won't do a thing on the charts but maybe airplay will be reasonably good?

Well Pre-save is used by loads of acts these days, I got various mails from artist mailing lists to pre-save music, so that's gladly not just a Decca term :lol:

I really like this, I hope that she can have some success with it! Maybe she is going to be more of an albums artist now though.

I fear that her team is stuck in the past. They probably on one side think that this way they are building hype and see the Spotify pre-save as what pre-ordering on iTunes was back in the day :lol: I can't think of any other logical explanation, since it really doesn't makes sense in any way to wait until February 23

It's so stupid. Premiering a track on radio (which is cute) and then make it available to purchase 2 weeks later. In 2018!! :lol:

I hope the album release date is actually the album release date and not just the date the iTunes pre-order goes up though :lol:

It’ll have to be if she wants to promote it - she’s doing 8 shows a week in Chess from April and needs to go into rehearsals ASAP :lol:

I honestly don't know, I have seen the term a lot, especially for pop acts, acts like Rita Ora and stuff use it also for contests, like 'pre-save my new single and get a chance to win a M&G' :lol:

Just heard it. Not a fan.Certain parts sound dated? She needs better songwriters/producers. The production during the chorus is kinda cringy. There’s also something I don’t like about her runs sometimes. She’s better at belting and holding notes imo.
