New thread for Ariana who just dropped “Focus” a few hours ago. It will probably be all over the radio soon.October 30, 2015 at 10:57 am #413580
Bad song. BARF.October 30, 2015 at 11:01 am #413581
That song is disgusting especially that chorusOctober 30, 2015 at 3:51 pm #413582
Song is pretty decent except for that awful hook. The guy ruins it.October 30, 2015 at 4:26 pm #413583
FAIL.October 30, 2015 at 4:42 pm #413584
Really bad song… Glad Adele is there on iTunes to block it!October 30, 2015 at 4:52 pm #413585
It’s a rather deriative version of “Problem,” which I found addictive. This, not so much. I also think it sounds like a leftover from Amerie’s noughties catalog.
I like how people compare Ariana Grande to Mariah Carey, when I feel that she is more like the Taylor Dayne of right now – catchy hit songs, powerful voice but no real star power or longevity. I feel like her voice doesn’t go anywhere with these songs, tbh.October 30, 2015 at 6:19 pm #413586
It sounds like a cheap version of “Problem”. The chorus is what ruins it for me.October 30, 2015 at 7:35 pm #413587
Yuck!October 30, 2015 at 11:40 pm #413588
Awful song. The chorus, esp the guy’s barking, is horrendous. Not even comparable to Problem, at least that had a nice hook. Kinda disappointed with her, I expected a more mature song/look. Even the music video is cringe-y, because she’s trying to act all moulin rouge, but still looks/dresses like a kid. of course, wouldn’t expect more after donutgate.October 31, 2015 at 7:57 am #413589
Jesus, that was a mess. I quite liked her first album, but since then she’s gotten pretty stale.
– The video itself isn’t bad, I like the sets and costumes and the way it uses silhouettes.
– There’s a really nice synth backing in the bridge of the song.
– Her voice is on point as usual. Can’t ever complain about that.
– The verses are boring, lyrically and instrumentally.
– There’s a crackhead yelling during the chorus.October 31, 2015 at 8:49 am #413590
The Crackhead was just announced as Jamie Foxx.October 31, 2015 at 10:21 am #413591
Ugh this is bad….November 1, 2015 at 6:24 pm #413592
The song sucks.
