Another nondescript, forgettable UK #1 single that will probably sell 1m "copies" through streams alone...

This is so poor, I understand I'm not exactly the target market here, but this isn't even rapping, it's basically just talking over a lazy beat. No hook, no nothing...

This came out of nowhere - I know Dave’s had quite a bit of hype, but he hasn’t had a crossover hit like this before.

It’s nice seeing something unexpectadly debut at #1 in this chart climate. I feel like they were lucky getting the #1 this week since the likes of Little Mix and Clean Bandit will probably dominate the fourth quarter.

Contrary to everyone else I love the song. Sonically it sounds like a UK answer to mid-2000s US rap.

:lol: :lol: Did you even listen to the track? The hook is, like, the catchiest and strongest part of the song :o

To be fair that’s not really saying much
