    utterly RIDICULOUS and continuing their ace of base feel, i hope it is out this friday...the rough 2 min demo shows the promise this has

    I dunno how I feel about a diamondless Marina yet. We'll see, I guess.

    When I saw the thread title I didn't immediately connect it with her, despite Disconnect.

    I think I am predisposed to 'not keen' at this change.

    That does seem stacked.

    Bhad Barbie though?! Louisa Johnson tacked right on the end there.

    FRIDAY



    I'm so ready. Still can't quite believe Marina scored the lead single - surely on course for her first ever top 10 :disco:

    I bloody LOVE most of their singles. I have been obsessed with 'Miss You' for the last couple of months.

    That album tracklist. And to think it's their second album too

    Christ, it's like a NOW album already. It may even attract the same audience...

    This doesn't hit Spotify until midnight but it's OUT THERE

    It's pretty good. I don't LOVE it on first play. It does feel quite Marina though, with random Spanish elements thrown in for the sake of getting a hit. I think it will be as big as Solo.

    Echoing what Pipo said: There was no need for Luis Fonsi on this.

    This is making its telly bow under the glittering lights of It Takes Two tomorrow night. Zoe Ball doesn't appear to have got the memo that Marina is now without diamonds.

    I'm quite fascinated by the way the cutout makes the woman on the cover look like she has the most severe pancake ass of all time

    I wish the horn section was longer, they definitely ripped off the best part of Havana there. I'm still incredibly smug for calling that as a #1 the first time I heard it.

    Marina sounds great, although it would be hilarious if it didn't go top ten after she sold out for a hit again (it obviously will though, I know). They should have turned it into a lesbian-themed duet with Starley instead of Despacito Man, I'm glad she still has some sort of a career.

    I think this will grow but I like it. It's very Shakira on Prozac. However it's on the edge of Sublime - I think I'll grow to love it.

    Clean Bandit can do no wrong at the moment, hit after hit

    No. But persist with it, it took me about four plays to really get into it. The chorus and bridge melodies are quite divine.

    I think I played this about 4 times before I became obsessed and I now see it becoming my song of the year.
    It’s wonderful.

    I love this, and Marina is a complete star in the video.

    Fonsi's verse bit works well but I wish he wasn't all over the last chorus.

    I was bored on first listen. Will try again. It did make me play the Froot album again though

    I really like this. Is what why it's not taking off? Or is Marina just chart poison?

    Debuts at 33. It should be fine in the long run, although Radio 1 haven't added it yet (despite being their song of the week this week and last)

    I don’t understand the charts now. This is likely to climb?

    I'm sure they will be fully on board at some point, I can't see them cutting the cord now. A few more telly performances with Marina looking like a complete goddess would be nice too.

    I would say "yes". It's very difficult to anticipate these days but there does seem to be a wind behind this, albeit not as strong as the one behind, say, "Symphony".
