Holy shit did no one actually listen to the song?

this comment section is exasperatingly ridiculous.

"What do you expect from the guy who "discovered" Justin Bieber?"
Really, Killer? I mean, really?

omg.How is this song generic at all?

Ughhh why did I even think posting this to Sputnik of all places would be even a remotely good idea?

Yeah, this is awesome. Very modern production, but with a classic vocal performance. Hopefully, he'll put out an album this year.

hated the high pitch in the chorus (unnecessary). Other than that the song's pretty chill.

apparently pitchfork's a big fan of this song, who would've thought

will probably be played on radio lots, but it just doesn't have that radio-feel for some reason, too quiet and tamed

Yeah, it's not upbeat enough for typical radio play but then again Marvins Room was really somber and that made a killing on the radio.

It makes me happy to see Diplo's still got it.

Song is good... for his standards, otherwise its just alright. Like, if this was on that JMSN album (which i thought was average as fuck) it would be one of the best songs.

That said, the progression from shit like "OMG" to this is kind of astounding.

i hate usher because when alchemy index came out, i was always trying to either listen to the song moving mountains, or the band moving mountains, and the first 100 youtube videos were always moving mountains by usher even tho his song came out like 3 months afterwards....

Pop, not deep, Justin Bieber, etc.

@jdennis: Haha I have that problem with a lot of songs. Why didn't you just download the album?

i have no idea, considering i'm pretty sure i downloaded the alchemy index immediately after it leaked... i actually like this song too. not sure if cause the weeknd made r&b more accessible to me or if it's cause this sounds like the weeknd to me.

See, THIS was the comments I was expecting Sputnik to make and me to try to explain them otherwise except dumb comments about Justin Bieber and "lol stupid mainstream" and stuff.

but I can understand why one might originally think that, but the only thing they really have in common in this song is really sparkly polished progressing electronic beats and a high-pitched voice. The melodies and even production style are still pretty different.

it doesn't sound like it's ripped off or anything, just seems to be taking a few notes on how to hit those high falsettos without being too flamboyant about it. have only really listened to the big radio usher songs tho so don't know if that's just his style or something he's incorporating.

Haha, no I understand. And I'm pretty sure stuff like The Weeknd kind of influenced him to make this kind of song but he can usually sing like that.

"Whenever I need a good laugh I can always rely on gabe defending crappy musicians."

lol I'm going to hold back on my criticisms of you since you kind of unintentionally make fun of yourself with your posts.

@ASnide: but Usher is great (a lot of the time) and when I defend music it's usually because it's good (to me and I feel like I have justification. Obviously there's no such thing as objectively good or bad.)

@Malleus: Sigh.
