This comes to mind. Sounds epic and like its building up to something and then... nothing.

shakira and maluma’s song clandestino.. the chorus is so boring

Totally agree with you.

 

Chantaje could use a better chorus as well... but it still kinda slays and the song itself is amazing.

Focus

 

Many of Ariana's songs are not bad imo but her choruses are weak

People saying Style.

 

A good example is Focus by Ariana, the verses are so good and then that horrendous chorus kicks in.

Ariana Grande - Focus

Panic! At The Disco - Golden Days

Janelle Monae - Make Me Feel

Lana Del Rey - Honeymoon

Tove Lo - Stranger

:shakeno: Based on similar melody structure, that means Problem (Ariana), Hands To Myself (Selena Gomez), Want To Want Me (Jason Derulo), and Thinking 'Bout You (Ciara) are in the same boat which I disagree with.

And these two are still good, but would be stronger with better choruses instead of the lazy repetition/sound effect thing she keeps using:

Don't hurt Yourself. Not only does it have horrid lyrics, the chorus is lazy and goes nowhere.

Problem - Kind of. Somehow it kind of works for me in that song though.

Hands To Myself - Yes.

Want To Want Me - I actually love that whole song. I don't think it's that similar since it has a huge chorus.

I haven't heard the Ciara song.

But yeah, I'm generally not a fan of those type of songs that build up to a more sparse and minimalistic hook. They just don't keep me engaged and I end up getting bored. I love the verses/pre-chorus'/bridges in Make Me Feel and Focus, but the hooks just don't do it for me, and when it comes to pop music the chorus is usually the most important part.

I usually like Shawn's stuff a lot, but the chorus of this is kinda off-putting and annoying to me. It's so one-note:skull:
