Seriously? It's very serviceable.

Hmm I'm really disappointed too tbh. I like all artists involved and was underwhelmed. I think it might be a grower but the first listen wasn't what I expected it to be

So this is currently racing up iTunes UK to an almighty...#54 :o Although i remember On my mind took a few weeks before it peaked in the UK charts so chances are this could potentially do the same and hit its stride in a months time.

I’m surprised it’s stalling currently, thought she was someone who would sell on name alone!

Entered at #36 on Spotify but fell yesterday.

It gets better to me every time I hear it.

The "cloooosee to mee" is a really strong hook, but the rest of the chorus is a little lacklustre. I'd like a version without Swae Lee.

There are elements of a good song here but it's just too mediocre to warrant repeated listens. It's time to go back to the debut era sound I think.
