Okay, I have like 60 people asking me my opinion as a former music critic and I’m still half a sleep but now that I’ve listened to it like 5 times, here it goes:
SO FUCKING GOOD.
It’s Fireproof all over again and this time it looks like they’re going to use the opportunity this song can gives them. They went Beyoncé on us and dropped a single without any announcement, AMAZING! This is a great song, gives a very Maroon5 vibe, the kind of pop song people who listen to the radio will enjoy. This is such a great choice for a first single, I have faith in this album, I’m going to trust them to honour it and not make the mistakes they made with FOUR.
The song is great: nautical and gender neutral lyrics, the music is on point and THE HARMONIES OMG, also no overly filtered voices and I LOVE IT, THIS IS SOME GOOD MATERIAL, OUTSIDERS COULD LIKE IT WITHOUT GOING ALL “BOO IT’S A BOYBAND” AND THEY’RE WORKING ON THE PROMO ALREADY. I’M GOING TO SHOW EVERYBODY THIS SONG, YOU BETTER BE READY, WORLD.
