I feel like this is a make it or break it moment in Zara's career; it doesn't sound like this is the smash she needs, it's very fourth single/strong album track. Reminds me of when Jamelia followed up her breakthrough era with Something About You; a good song, but not what she needed at all. Still, like the Jamelia song I can see UK radio eating this up.

I like the song though. The songwriting is very generic and the radio edit is way too repetitive, but I love the instrumentation and the layered vocoder during the chorus. Hopefully this campaign will be a success for Zara (they're planning on dropping multiple singles to build up hype before releasing an album).

Why is this already released now? She will loose a half day in most countries or even more in the US... :-?

It’s a cute song, but not lead single worthy.

After the first listen: I like it but I can't see it smashing.

Word for word what I feel! Quite stumped she's chosen a track that screams "sophomore slump". Fingers crossed the album ends up becoming as good as Jamelia's Walk With Me!

Have to agree! Heard it this morning and don't care if I never hear it again.

Hmm not a bad song, but it's a little underwhelming.

:lol:

I have the impression the record label have chose this as Zara's lead single, and that Zara had very little say in the matter. Why are record labels so bad at choosing the obvious hit singles? :evil: :x

She's a great Pop artist but this chorus is a huge no. The verses are sweet.

I would be very surprised if this does anything.

I think Zara has made enough impact in the last 2 years to carry the momentum forward with this single.

That said, i agree 100% the chorus is the weakest part of the song. The music video is very glossy too so will get multiple plays on the music channels.

Quite good and if Jess and Rita can keep scoring top 10 middle of the road non-event hits, then I don't see why Zara can't.

Apart from Girls, everything Rita released so far are great. This song is bland.
Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.
