@12 - Singing with higher vocals is always a risk. J Timberlake did it well in the past and Ed's good here too. @11 - I'm surprised how well this is doing. It's a little screechy, but its growing on me. Last edited:
@6 - Sounds very strong now. It took a while to grow on me. @5 - Not really much into this production. It's ok I guess. @4 - Another that I am surprised is charting so high. Like really surprised. Very passive song.
Hard call at the moment if this can get #1 next week. A bit of a shame that in some close sales races, it's the two songs that happen to be $1.19 on iTunes that are coming out on top, while lower than the others on streaming
Que Sera isn't so bad, but it just goes through the motions with the lack of variability, particularly late in the song when something could have been turned up a notch. Not bad overall, just disappointing to many of those great songs that weren't able to chalk up 5 week at #1 in the history books.
Surprised to see John Mayer cover a mediocre Beyoncé hit. I am yet to hear it but I wasn't thrilled with Beyonce's version a few months back so am not holding my breath on his version being out of this world.
