292 Deja Vu - Post Malone Deja Vu - Post Malone

More proof Bieber is becoming overrated, perhaps more than Drake. This song makes no legitimate sense whatsoever. -1/5 - ProPanda

This song proves not even Justin Bieber can stop Post Malone from making a good song. 4.5/5 - SelfDestruct

293 All We Know - The Chainsmokers All We Know - The Chainsmokers

Drew's vocals are fragile and low, with Phoebe's strong higher voice. The production has nice guitars and solid snaps leading into a drop combining classic Egyptian brass and modern snaps. The lyrics tell a story of a fading relationship doing it's best to keep stable. Almost perfect. 4/5, mainly because it's rhythmically just a Closer ripoff and I hope that sleazy interview with Billboard doesn't ruin their reputation and make this a flop, cause it's really damn good. - ProPanda

Absolutely empty. Phoebe Ryan and Andrew Taggart's respectively prepubescent and absolutely atrocious vocal tones blend together into this awful dead-zone, and both performers sound so bored. The production also fits this. We have a bunch of reverb saturating gleamy keys, punchy bass, and little else. It's incredibly naked and makes for such a bland experience, at least until the drop where it shifts into an equally flat spray of synth that is somehow overshadowed in quality by the melodic snaps.

But honestly, the real reasom I hate this is because of Closer. This is a ripoff. In every way. The bland vocals, the lyrics jarringly detailing two exes coming back together despite the fact that they clearly shouldn't, the melody on the chorus, just so much. It's not as bad as Closer, but going from horrendous to lifeless and calling that an improvement is kinda sad. 1/5 - WonkeyDude98
