The video is pretty good. But as with every CRJ song (not counting Call Me Maybe which I hated from the first time I heard it) I'm quite indifferent towards it. Her voice is so generic to me which is the main reason I can't get into her music despite the fact that it's quite well made.

I bloody despise Call Me Maybe as well. It’s my pre-mature pop nightmare.

I’m pleased with the new track as it does not sound particularly like CMM.

I like it, but I don't think it'll be a hit. I legit think she could have had a mainstream hit if she had come back with something maybe 20% stronger.

Video is fun, CRJ delivering the masturbation anthem of 2018.

(also, it's #15 on US iTunes!)

Welcome back queen. Not her best song or most catchy tune, but a really good pop song.
I hope she finds success with this. She deserves it.

Oh no, that's ruined it for me now. Her songs usually really grow on me, so we'll see how this one goes. Either way I'm ready for her next era.

I love this! :D

And btw, Carly was doing this kind of pop long before Taylor started.

Carly performed on the ‘Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ just the other night and gave her first televised performance of ‘Party For One’.



The song didn’t make the Hot 100 this week, but there’s still time! :wink:

I’m not saying she came before or after Taylor, I’m saying it’s too similar to Taylor’s bratty pop for my liking.

I hated everything about this. Emotion however was the second coming of Christ so this was always going to disappoint.
Most listened to albums at the moment:
Christina Aguilera - Liberation
Lily Allen - No Shame
Kali Uchis - Isolation

It charted in the lower regions of the Irish, Japanese and Canadian charts.

Currently B-Listed at Radio 1, but it's not even in the top 200 of the iTunes or Spotify charts. Probably because the song is a bit of a non-event.

The song really is crap. Can’t believe she went from Emotion to this.
