    Awesome! This could have been off Trouble In Paradise as well.

    I dig this!

    So happy she’s back! Love the arrangements of this track, I hope it does well chart-wise. Video is cute. Was this written some years back? The title sounds very familiar.

    This is like Trouble in Paradise 2 and I'm all up for it!

    I was intrigued when I saw the song title, it comes across so eccentric. The song turned out quite nice, but it's a little bit flat in places and kind of feels like a leftover from Trouble in Paradise.

    I wish it had more oomph in it.

    I had absolutely no idea that she released a sophomore album! I am shocked that I totally missed it! I will check this one out, though.

    To say the least! I think it’s very catchy.

    The only criticism I have is its similarity to previous songs from Trouble In Paradise. I’d be ready for something rather brand new.

    Checked this cause I knew her name from that "Bulletproof" song, which I liked back then, but God this new song sounds horrendous. Her voice especially is grating to me.

    Her voice was grating on the first album for a lot of people (me included). She used her chest rather than head voice in the second album more and it sounded much better.

    However I think Elly had vocal problems between both albums, so it will be interesting to see how it sounds on the rest of the album.

    Apparently the title refers to her taking over 5 years to release each of her albums.

    I liked Trouble in Paradise but not a fan of this, it feels like there’s been no progression
