Agreed. Not going to be picky though, I'll take any song if it get Marina into the Top 10

I was divided on 1st listen, but loving it more and more with each play. I think the more “basic”, chart-friendly parts of it are so well balanced by Marina’s unique delivery and great lyrics. The video also helps a lot. Overall a great song.

As a fan of hers, I think it is quirky and hopefully well-timed! I love it and have been humming it since yesterday.

However, I am concerned that this might not do well -- juxtaposing that unconventional voice and composition against reggaeton might come off a bit odd to the GP.

Edit: Listening to it on headphones is a whole other experience. :o The bass reminds me of Venus Fly by Grimes & Janelle Monae and the arrangements are a lot more minimal than I expected.

When I opened the video it was at 26 views :lol:
The video is so stunning, everyone looks so stunning and the storyline works too. :cry: Even Luis Fonsi has a purpose in this. Stanning so hard for Grace, Luke and Marina's looks. :cry: :cry: 2.2 million now, 220 million soon?

It doesn't have this annoying Luis Fonsi feature (btw, ''Despacito'' was not that big of a hit until they threw Bieber into the mix).
Luis Fonsi suits this song. Besides, that’s not what I was getting at. Luis was put on to get Latin streaming numbers, not because he’s any sort of chart force. Baby is infinitely catchier than Disconnect, which is far too low-key for radio.
I’m a big fan of Disconnect but THIS

This was a bit meh on first listen and I wasn’t enthralled by it but it’s a grower. It’s great to have Marina back on new music she really has one of the most unique voices in the industry

Really loving this. I think it is a grower for sure. The first time I listened to it I thought it was a bit all over the place but the second time it just clicked. The video is brilliant.

Marina x Luis seems like such a random collaboration, but for some reason it really works and I seem to enjoy this quite a much. The music video is pretty gorgeous as well <3

I do understand why people, especially hardcore Marina fans like myself, prefer Disconnect but this song has much more potential to smash. And I just want her to smash for once. I don't expect her new record to sound like this.

Well at least she's upfront about wanting stream numbers, not like (Pa)Nicki. :lol:

Probably as a bonus track I would assume. I highly doubt the entire record will be in the same style.

when if this doesn't work for Marina, she should beg Calvin Harris for a single/remix (+the Ed Sheeran feature) to finally get that smash

Yeah, probably as a bonus song on a deluxe edition (if there’ll be one) or just a bonus song at the end of the album (12 regular songs + Baby).

3.7 million views on YT currently. That's not really a good number. Luis Fonsi was supposed to bring that Latin crowd that loves YT and brings up streams. So far it's not happening even with Clean Bandit having good streaming numbers with their previous songs. If it doesn't pick up it won't get to 50 million any time soon, let alone become a decent sized hit.

That's because it's still very new and Clean Bandit fans aren't quick on video platforms.

Solo started off with 1.05 million views on its first day and took 28 days to hit 50 million. 6 months later, it has 364 million. It didn't peak in views until 3 months after it was released.

In comparison, Baby launched with 1.99 million views and is doing similarly since. Wait until this gets playlisted. :wink:

I hope this turns around and becomes a hit. I think it's pretty good and I like how they did not use a formula on this.

Luis Fonsi still doesn't fit in this at all, even after so many spins
