    She's taken a break from accusing Rita Ora of being a whore to premiere her new track.



    I was expecting something a little more commercial than this, it sounds a little all over-the-place. I think it might take a bit to GET IT. Announcement of 'buzz single' status expected soon.

    I know I'm too old now, as that is just noise to me.

    I thought she might actually be after a bona fide hit with her official first single. Evidently not.

    Thats a bit shot, but I'm more concerned about the complete lack of originality

    Every one of her songs is

    "bitch nigga is rich she's a bitch nigger bitches is rich if she's bitchin nigger bitches be rich"

    Repeat 40 times

    Add retro beat

    Layer with industrial noise

    Serve

    I can't hear it that well on my work computer but I think it sounds great. A bit of CJ Bolland's Sugar is Sweeter on the shouty bits, a bit of Missy Elliott with the vocal delivery and a bit of 90s gabba with the beats.

    HOWEVER, it's too uncommercial to be a hit. Even Missy Elliott's singles at their most abstract (e.g. Pass That Dutch) had a commercial hook to them. This is borderline Here's Johnny by Hocus Pocus.

    Accurate.

    I like the screaming. But this is yet another buzz string to add to her buzz bow.

    Inaccurate

    How can you listen to 'Luxury' after '1991' after '212' after 'Esta Noche' and say that any of them sound like each other!?

    If anything, her problem is that she hasn't been uniform ENOUGH with her sound; hence why everything she releases sounds like a lead single from a new project.

    I maintain she has serious star quality and I still find her rather fascinating

    They've just been faffing about WAY TOO MUCH over the past 18 months instead of just capitalising on the genuine BUZZ that 212 whipped up. I'm not sure there's the same interest or demand right now

    The teaser video was amazing - I had no idea a music video could even BE 3D - and yet it was. Looking forward to the final video IN A SEC

    Au contraire, I reckon my shunning will lead to her finally blowing up - it's the opposite of the CLARE MAGUIRE EFFECT

    She needs to wake up and STOP making music that's trying to be 'game changing', seriously that shitty rap song she just released sounds like it belongs on Crystal Castles debut album. Stop the noisy 'hip hop' and keep making music like 'Liquorice', which of course, wasn't as hyped up as '212', but listen... and then listen again, and you soon realise it's much better.

    Almost all of her tweets have been deleted, presumably on record label orders :basil:
