With everyone involved, this could be one of the songs of the year. The description sounds amazing.

I like the concept they used for their last few single covers, so I'm glad they've kept it. It's a great photo of Dua.



The song leaked. I'm underwhelmed, but maybe that's because the muddy production in the poor quality leak is so distracting.

Not much different from Calvin Harris' recent offerings, formulaic.

Definitely the best I’ve heard from Silk City yet, the piano running through it is brilliant! Dua and dance music are made for each other.

Underwhelming for me. Expected more to be honest.

The Times mis-reported the writing credits, Florence had no involvement in the song.

Not blown away by this, but I'm enjoying it. Dua shines in the video.
