Sounds like a poor man's "Titanium." I don't mind if this becomes a hit or not. I'm neutral to it. However, this better not interfere with "Titanium," because if there's only room for one or the other...
I used to like Jessie when 'Do It Like A Dude' & 'Price Tag' came out. She was a breath of fresh air until she did cheap knockoffs of 'Teenage Dream' & 'Titanium'. I can't stand her voice in 'Domino' & this song, it's very annoying.

It's too bad that the label couldn't take the goodwill earned from Domino's success and push a ballad to really SHOW OFF Jessie's insane voice. Ahh, if we were only in another radio era. But alas, Jessie's gonna be pushing this stuff for a while. Not that I don't like this song, but Jessie is better than this.
This song just doesn't do anything for me. I guess the 1st time I heard it I thought it sounded unfinished and in demo form... and when I heard the final version, it was the EXACT SAME! I still wish she would've released Who You Are in the US.

I am just so sick of her using similes in every song. Like a domino or like a lazerlight or like abracadabra or do it like a dude. It is very annoying not everything has to be like something. I just find her uber average and vanilla. I miss her in Price Tag where she was catchy, but was still good.
Yeah, not a fan of this nor her voice on it. I'll echo what others have said--I'm a fan of a handful of tracks on her debut album (Do It Like A Dude, Abracadabra, Price Tag, Big White Room, Who's Laughing Now), but this Americanization thing they have going on with her is really tiresome.
Lol, her first album is so overrated on Pulse. I didn't like it at all, with the exception of the first single and the title track.
The album as a whole disappointed me. I think I ended up only liking 2-3 tracks. I don't like any of her new trying to trendy music including Domino which everyone here worshiped. It frustrates me because I feel like she has insane talent that, with the correct direction, could really make for some great music. But for some reason that just has NOT happened yet. Oh well maybe with the next full cd.
...but this is so disappointing to me. Her debut had incredible songs on it. I love 'Who You Are' and 'Do It Like A Dude' and 'Nobody's Perfect' and while 'Domino' and 'Laserlight' are good songs, the other ones are just as good if not better and it's frustrating for me to see good material like that go to waste.
