Yeah, this is definitely my least favorite lead single of hers. It's solid but it's lacking something. I agree with the "Young & Beautiful" comparisons, seems more like a soundtrack song than a proper Lana single.
I feel like 2016 was the perfect year for her to score an actual hit on Hot 100, among "i hate u i love u", "Gold"... The year was pretty friendly towards these darker, slower pop songs. This really might have been a hit if she released this during spring, summer 2016.
Hah, yeah – this song seems like a pretty clear appeal to the BTD/Paradise fans who may not have had the interest or patience for what followed. I'm jamming anyway and certainly don't fault her for letting the mainstream catch up to her, but I'm not sure it's much of a progression.
It's dreamy. I really like the lyrics, great progression from her previous work. Got me interested again!
What do you mean by ...
It is of course 1000 better than Honeymoon video and 100 better than Music to watch boys to and even High by the Bitch
but ... if you think this sole song is better than whole Honeymoon album ...
You know, I've never fallen for those abusive relantionship lyrics she likes and I thought this last album was crazy boring. I don't know, I just think this sounds more mature, more so than Young and Beautiful, hence why I said progression.
The song didn't immediately grab me like her other lead singles but the video really elevated the song and it's grown on me so much. The video has fantastic visuals and she really worked the camera. So excited for the new era.
Mehhhhh, this is bland. Born to Die and Paradise were amazing for me, so I guess, in theory, I should love this song. But it's just another song in her very monotone catalog. She lost me somewhere around Ultraviolence in how boring her songs had become, and nothing from Honeymoon nor this track has brought me back.
What kind of prescient queen to put out a video that's super relevant to the recent NASA announcement. The song and video are absolutely stunning, I was obsessed with HBTB for its campiness but this song is on another level in quality.
