    This is FANTASTIC! It’s J Lo does Eurovision. Her voice sounds a lot better than before too.

    #7 on iTunes and #4 on the New Music Friday playlist on Spotify so she might be able to salvage a minor top 40 with this!

    This is GREAT. I am always rooting for some Fleur success.

    I wonder how long she had this tucked away for before waiting for the IACGMOOH platform to launch it?

    I can see why they waited until January but there’s something quite Office Christmas party about the song

    Obviously same applies with Sax too

    This is good. Anonymous, but well constructed and produced. By a bigger name it would have a good shot at being a hit - let's hope it gets some Spotify and radio support

    Love the cover art

    Pleasantly surprised on first listen, LOVING on second. She’s so lovely she deserves another shot

    This is all round so much better than I expected from her after so long and her major label exit. Really good.

    Hopefully it might get given a chance on radio and some playlists thanks to the dearth of anything else new since early December.

    The video is quite good too

    Someone give Alexandra an education on how it's done

    In fairness Alexandra had a bunch (and more than Fleur) of good singles before losing her way.

    It's strange, I'm a Fleur fan but this just hasn't clicked with me yet.

    I think SDF is referring to coming back after reality TV exposure.

    Oh especially with the wailing towards the end.

    I know it was only This Morning but I'm not completely convinced by the performance.



    To be fair it is probably just being distracted by so many ugly denim ensembles on the screen.

    This is VERY Eurovision.

    I like it but I like her more. I really hope that radio and Spotify get on board. It feels like she didn't really get a fair crack of the whip first time around (as with so many other Syco acts).

    Why on earth would anyone choose to wear such horrible clothes? Mind you, I’m with Björk on the subject of denim. VILE AND WRONG :oi:

    I think if this was our entry, we’d be top 10 for sure. If she got rid of the denim!

    this sounds like a Nicole Sherzinger comeback single (If she ever strived for one) but also like it belongs to a Ru Paul´s Drag Race contestant/winner single AT THE SAME TIME

    and all for the better of it :disco:

    Was this only released last Friday? I thought it charted last week for some reason.

    Oh :(

    It totally does deserve to take off, but it seems like she’s got a tv gig presenting some weight loss thing on this morning so I’m not sure she’s really about to do much promo
