I love the bit that goes "have you lost your mind" but the verses seem clunky. The chorus is catchy but its the production that makes the song sound cheap.

Not as bad as I expected while reading the comments. Better than most of the other hits today actually. Overall it’s cute and has hit potential.

Sounds really bad as usual, I am not surprised. Who buys this? :lol:

This has left me with a headache and many questions:

- is a green screen all Epic could afford for M-Train's big comeback?
- why can't she move her feet?
- why is she wearing Lady GaGa's glasses from 2009?
- is there still a market for Uptown Funk inspired pop?
- why is Meghan still dropping cliches about "your momma"?
- how can 2 minutes 35 seconds seem so long?

It fits right in on my playlist with Madonna's Superstar. I have great taste.

I just don’t find her singing songs about having to fight off hordes of boys remotely believable tbh

She needs to find different subject matter to sing about

I don’t see her as a “deep” artist who evolves so I’m fine with her staying in her lane. She could still prolong the inevitable floppage with such things.

No one’s here for serious Meghan, which we’ve seen with the chart performance of Better.

It's soooo short but I love it, I hope it's a huge hit for her.
Doesn't sound like an album seller but I'm sure she'll drop something else before the album anyway

I also love the “have you lost your mind” part, the rest is forgetable and generic. People let it flop “Emotion” with anthems like “Warm Blod” and yet they will make this trash successful. I’m already deceased :roll: :lol:

I never expected to see her grow immensely as artist in some way, but I feel she is better than this song if that makes sense. The girl has been giving interviews the last year how being engaged and her fiancé teaching her to eat and live healthy has changed her overall life and thought process about things, and we just get an other song with the same kind of lyrical content we are used from her, maybe I expected too much. :lol: :lol:

I was hoping you guys were just being dramatic and harsh and this song really wouldn't be that bad. However it really isn't good and there has been zero growth from her.

She looks good! I know that she has always rocked her weight and all but is it just me or does it look like she has lost some?

The more interesting question is how this does on streaming, since I feel that will show a better picture of how this is doing
