I love her, I'm happy Atrl is catching up but I really don't feel the song. I wish it was a banger but where her vocals still shine like HRN. In this song, it seems like she is not a good singer but I'll give it few more listens.
My thoughts exactly.She has great voice to waste it just like that on these standard radio type of songs.I think right now they're just aiming for safe radio exposure while 2nd single will be different stuff.But I think song is cute...nothing really special but cute.
I watched a video that said she's 19 though, but I read an article that says 21. Not sure which to believe.
She is 21 this year.

Approaching a song rhythmically, rather than melodically, is something synonymous with Beyonce/DC and probably her claim to fame in respects to the question being posed.Of course CIL pretty much popularized "Go-Go" in popular music. The only other notable "Go-Go" song prior to CIL is "Doin' The Butt", and that was 1988.
An argument could be made that Beyonce is the one who popularized the heavy Urban/Hip-Hop driven backing with R&B outside of the US. "Deja Vu", "Drunk In Love" (in time), and CIL just to name a few.

I think someone is replacing rihanna she looks like her when she first started

I feel like she's being pitched as a Rihanna-Katy Perry combination now and I'm not interested in that.
I wanted her to be something fresh and different, and this first single is so not. Maybe it's just to introduce her (like UR So Gay was for Katy) before her more individual real lead single comes out (her I Kissed a Girl).
It's obvious that they are pushing her to do more radio-friendly songs so she can punch in the US... I don't think her her whole album will sound like this. I think this is going to be a semi smash for her just so her name can get out there. The song is cute nothing more nothing less.
