    First single from album 3, in the same moody pop vein as the last record. Currently huge everywhere (3 on global Spotify, #4 Hot 100) - the middle 8 interpolates Cry Me A River



    unspectacular (like all her stuff) but quite good nonetheless. It's weird, she has become quite huge seemingly out of nowhere without one indentifiable big breakout hit

    "Closer" says HI Jark


    "Bad at Love" was properly big too (at least in the States)

    Colors was a MAX TRACK as well back in 2016 or was that just me?

    That's my fav Hasley track but she really didn't have a BREAKTHROUGH moment until "Closer" / "Now or Never" / "Bad at Love" etc

    Bad at Love wasn't big anywhere except the states, and as a vocalist on that Chainsmokers track she was interchangeable with anyone so I don't feel her sudden hugeness is really explained or that she's had that one breakout solo track you'd expect her to have had.

    InterchangeAble or NOT she sang the hook on a 12 week number one so I don’t really think there’s a point in being surprised that it has contributed to a couple years of popularity...

    Being a hook girl on a generic dance track never does anything for anyone's career, no matter how big it is! Those songs don't make fanbases

    I feel like more than anyone else in the streaming era she's just exploded via the internet without having much presence as a global popstar - maybe I'm not articulating the point I want to make very well

    oh what about those known hook girls who slay our lives on a day to day basis like Ellie Goulding, SLAYena Gomez, Rita Ora (Phoenix OUT NOW!) and Rihanna POP?
