I still like Level Up the most out of these three "singles". Freak Me became stale very quickly, and Dose is nice but a little too dated.

"Dose" is so forgetful. Sounds like a leftover from 2006 at best.

I mean, as dated as “Dose” may sound it’s still way better than “Level up”. LU served it’s purpose, it went viral, but as a song - it’a bad. “Freak me” is very good on the other side.

With her vocals, I believe it was out of her last era, Jackie.
With all the charting rubbish, I appreciate this production more.

It sounds incredibly dated but I'm enjoying this. The production is tight.

I am really happy that it sounds dated, cause music was so much better back then. 8-) :D Level Up was rubbish.

I am sure it would be #1 on spotify if she mumbled the whole way through.

+1 I'm starting to think she won't ever be able to top Ciara (album) for me though :-?

It indeed sounds like "4 Minutes"! Giving me Step Up vibes. Idk, I kinda dig it though - I just wish the hook went harder.

I totally agree. It's sounds like something Timbaland would release.

This is probably just another buzz single. She better not waste "Freak Me".

I'm all here for people referencing 2000s pop/R&B, but at least put it somewhat in context of 2018. It just comes off as a pastiche....or in Ciara's case a lack of growth.
