This gets better with every listen.

Still, don't think it's lead single material.

I can’t get enough of this track, pretty glad she went for this sound, it’s the right amount of edgy and it survives repeat listens really well!

Uninspired, uninspiring Starbucks background noise.

Which will most likely break it again. But great achievement. Curious if this has longevity

Considering this era is so close to the last, I wonder why this is having so much more impact, perhaps the Sweetner era gained her lots of new fans

I think people are just really thirsty for new music. Literally none of the major acts of the last 10 years have new music out rn, except for her. The current No.1 on the Hot 100 is the weakest since the early 2000s.

The surprise of this being released so soon and talking about all her ex boyfriends, as well as releasing it right before Pete's SNL kit also plays a role I think. The lyrical theme/content also became kinda viral

Maybe one of her most honest songs lyrically speaking which is always welcome. It really sounds like an album closer to me, a good one though.

Yeah I don't really get it either tbh.

This reminds me of when We Found Love was rush released in the middle of Cheers' chart run and smashed out the gate.

Same here. I really didn't care for the Dangerous Woman era but suddenly I'm in love with her again now. Not necessary because of the album campaign cause I don't even like the album although I do think "God Is A Woman" is one the best songs of the year so far, but more because of her story and what's been happening to her these past 18 months.
