    she's a much better dancer now. I don't think anyone who watched Studio 2054 could seriously argue she's a personality void.

    To be FAIR to Dua, as much as I love a BAD DUA DANCING montage - those clips are all quite old now. She's really put in the work for the second album.

    The Physical workout routine video makes my body feel PAIN just by watching it.

    Dua is proof that even if you aren't born with much natural charisma or talent, if you really want it and put in the work, it can happen for you

    And I really don't mean that in a shady way

    Having followed her career from the VERY START (literally, I saw her perform in front of about 200 people YEARS AND YEARS AGO) it's really amazing for me that she's having this imperial period and making seemingly ALL the correct choices. Her management are such a credit to her (ALL GAYS btw :D)

    Remember when Lost In Your Light (who?) charted at 86? What a COMEBACK!

    I was just thinking today how forgotten Break My Heart already feels in contrast with Don't Start Now, Physical and Levitating :D it did the trick and I love it a lot but I'd say it's a notch below. it's just a slightly less showy/dramatic pop song I guess.

    "Physical", "Break My Heart" and "Levitating" are about equal for me. It's "Don't Start Now" that's a step above.

    If the new single is good, I could see a number one debut in the uk, and maybe even in the us

    Love is Religion won't be on it, no, but That Kind of Woman will.

    Well that's unfortunate, since Love is Religion is so much better than That Kind of Women

    In remixed form I imagine both are better than their originals so I'm not fussed about getting EITHER. But I'd rather have That Kind of Woman i think.

    apparently the single leaked and is rubbish but I haven't listened yet. it's called We're Good

    I do slightly prefer the remixed Love is Religion, though I suppose That Kind of Woman might be better in original form.

    I was hoping for a more complete edition but it sounds like this side B won't be it. Maybe the re-re-re-release.

    I've grown to really love both Un Dia and Fever (but not as much as the main album). Hopefully We're Good is good too. If it is, I think she could debut at number 1 in the UK and maybe even the US

    We're Good leaked a while back and got a pretty negative reception on Popjustice. I didn't listen but apparently it's basic/not a hit :eyes:

    Levitating is smashing anyway and will dominate for ages in the US so I guess this can be another FUN FOR EUROPE single...
