I really want to like this but I feel indifferent.

Btw pre-save is a thing with streaming - most artists use it as a way to pre-order on Spotify.

I'm confused. How do you pre save on Spotify if your monthly premium allows you to stream it for free when it is released? Is it just added to your playlist in the interim?

It means when it’s released it automatically adds to your library

It's smashing in Slovenia :o


Shadow

iTunes:
#4 Slovenia
#112 Ireland
#120 United Kingdom

It could crack the top 100 potentially.

Perched for the video. Hopefully it can give it a nudge

Her debut era seemed bigger than Leona Lewis to me. Sad to see such a massive fall from grace :cry:

She's slaying Slovenia at the moment:

Shadow

#112 Ireland
#141 United Kingdom

I really like the song, I hope she can have success with it.

Maybe she should do a EU radio tour as Overcome was huge and even Heartbreak On Hold singles had some EU presence. Was Tonight #1 in Greece or something like that?

The video is cute, but would have been the perfect setting for a 'live' or 'acoustic' video to additionally push the song down the line.I am happy we are getting new music by her, I didn't expected loads of things from Decca, but damn I feel there are even actual indie labels that could do a better job for her.

I've decided this is really crap, it sounds like something from a 2009 Song For Europe competition that would come fourth.
