Ah man. What a fun song. Like, this is just late 90s early 00s disco house pop, but I like it a lot.
And I don’t mind Ariana Grande’s whisper singing generally, and I don’t wanna be annoying and old about it but can you imagine this song with a vocal powerhouse like a lot of those tracks used to sample or feature? The runs are neat and all, but imagine that whole sentiment louder and stronger!!
Like, I want you to really imagine someone like Robin S. actually belting out ‘I’d rather be dry but at least I’m alive’ right now. Are you imagining it? Have you recovered? Now imagine Jocelyn Brown!!!!! Or Loleatta Holloway!!!!!!
Anyway, I like Gaga’s deeper-voiced ‘Rain. On. Me.’ bits so much. They really make the song memorable, I think. And I’m glad we’re all slowly bringing disco back by bringing back diva house first.
