I still think this is gonna be a big hit possibly in January 2019 kinda like how it took Shawn Mendes several months before Stitches topped the UK chart.

Yeah I think it's eventually going to be a top ten hit in a few markets, it's a slow burner.

Surprised to see this at #3 Dutch iTunes.
Didn't really like this one the first listen, might have to give this another chance.

That is a good thing. :P It makes me laugh when i see comments like "this is so dated". I'd rather have dated pop than nondescript rap music.

Heard this for the first time on the 'Today's Top Hits' playlist today and instantly got early Gaga vibes, which is obviously a compliment. What an insanely catchy chorus!

Haven't quite got into this yet, but I'm glad that it seems to be doing good because basic and dated sounding late-00s-pop in the style of TF-Gaga needs a revival cause we all know that's the good stuff.

First this and maybe we'll get a full schlager revival next.

This is just ok for me, I see her more akin to Anne-Marie than Lady Gaga. I liked the song she did with Le Youth last year though.

I fail to see appeal of this song. And it's not comparable with early Gaga stuff, they were much superior to this.
Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.

I can see why people compare her to early Gaga but Gaga's voice + early pop >>>

The song was only cute to me at the beginning but after it started smashing I suddenly started loving it.

What a refreshing song to hear in these days' musical climate! The song is not revolutionary and indeed sounds like an extract from Lady Gaga's 'The Fame', but it is basically a textbook pop song (chorus structure: x - x - y - x, the muh-muh-muh part, the song's length, the repetition of the words 'no' and 'yes' in the bridges) and profits from a lack of serious pop competition at the moment: Nice way to start a career - 8/10 :) !

The average Instagram users between 14 and 17 will like this very much.

Why is this a hit? It has a cheesy bubble gum feel to it.
It's nice seeing someone be a hit out of nowhere but this is super awful.

This dated demo blowing up is really fascinating to me. I know Ava Max has a big label push, but this 2009 Gaga knockoff didn't work for the artists labels were launching back then let alone in 2018. I can't believe they've managed to turn this into a hit.

What's killing me the most is that they're trying to make that lopsided wig her thing by turning it into iconography. Why are they taking tips straight out of 2010 Porcelain Black pop hell?

Yeah I also thought the song would be a bop for the gays while the GP pays it absolute dust but for some reason it has gone straight to #1 everywhere it was released :lol:

The hair thingy is just a gimmick to stand out at the beginning, she will for sure tone it down after / if she gets more hits.
