pass.. this sounds dated, isn't nearly as catchy as her previous singles and I don't like what they did to her voice

This has grown on me. So much better than 'Girls'. Hope this does well or I feel the album won't do well.

The song has so much potential, but I find the quirky post-chorus sound to be sooooooooo dated :(

I find that part curiously intriguing. :lol: It reminds me of another song for some reason but i can't figure out exactly which song it is.

Her voice is somehow changed, i was quite surprised to hear new voice at various parts of the song, nevertheless i guess it a decent effort albeit nothing groundbreaking.

This is a little basic, but there are some nice production flourishes and a great topline that keep me coming back to it. I especially love the use of the vocoder.

The video is simple, but they've made the most of it. The styling is on point and whoever did the colour grading needs a raise. Reminds me a little of Holly Valance's Down Boy music video.

this is catchy, I heard it on the radio the other night and didnt know what it was until the chorus kicked in, her voice in the opening reminded me a little of some dance artist like Jess Glynne esque or something.

The title itself is kinda refreshing in a way, instead of another take on 'Let Me Love You' (Mario, Ne-Yo, Ariana etc) here its 'Let You Love Me'. :P

It seems that it didn't. It's pretty high on iTunes, not sure about Spotify.

This song is so good! Rita can really do no wrong for me this era (except for the tragic version of Girls she released!).

That's usually always the case for pop artists. None of Rita Ora's singles this era started off high on Spotify but instead gradually climbed up as the song grew in popularity.

It's rappers like Lil Wayne that dominate in their first 24 hours! :roll: :evil: :x :-?

The same reason why Despacito has got 5 billion views, just 2 billion views short of the entire worlds population. :lol:

It'll be down to many people watching the video several times. :wink:

Queen of bops!

I honestly think this is one of the best songs released this year, bloody catchy. I hope my neighbours have been enjoying me dance to this because it has happened a lot in the last few days.
