“Just Desserts” is a song recorded by Greek/Welsh singer-songwriter Marina and the Diamonds in collaboration with English singer-songwriter Charli XCX. Much expectation has been generated with this song since the announcement that the two artists would record a song together. The result has finally seen the light. The singers released the song on May 1 to the surprise of all their fans. It was unclear if the song will be part of the reissue of Marina’s album “Electra Heart” (2012) or Charli’s “True Romance” (2013). Viewing official artwork seems that the song will be part of a Marina’s album. The song is a re-worked version of Marina’s demo leaked last year entitled “The Other Foot“.
The song is certainly a delicate and perfect sound mix of the two artists. That Marina’s compositional art with the dirty electronic touch of Charli XCX make “Just Desserts” a delightful song to enjoy after a good meal. Thanks for the dessert, dear!

love it!! amazing. *fangirling*

Interesting collabo, the song sounds pretty good, but "Electra Heart" has a lot better songs than this. Maybe (and hopefully) a grower.

It's quite hard to recognize who's singing what, especially during the second verse where (I think) both are singing/rapping.

BTW, they could've done something better. This sounds too much like a song from a mixtape.
