This grew on me, it's so rare to find songs in the mainstream that speak of actual scenarios in life apart from heartbreak or cheating, etc. I feel like the album was misrepresented by "In Common". She should have chosen real, raw songs to represent this more than go with the tropical/dancehall sound.

I agree! I love that it was more of expressing the song rather than trying to impress with the song as many vocalists do these days.

Lyrically it's a joke, but structurally it's her best in years.

yup the lyrics are soooo corny, which is a shame because otherwise the song is really well made. I mostly couldn't stand her music before so it's a miracle I love this

She became such a mess post (!) in common

That song would've been a cute buzz single
Nothing wrong with in common

But everything that happened after that? Including it being the actual lead single?

Well

I'd hardly say the lyrics are disgusting.

At least it's a song about something other than going out and drinking in the club, or being in love, or falling out of love, or being cheated on. She did something different with this song and it's refreshing to hear a song on a lesser-heard topic. Lyrically there are worse songs, so to say it's disgusting is just stupid.
