THIS is the song that the Weeknd should have made the first time. As gloriously spiteful as Starboy was, it had nowhere near the grit or viscerality this has. The creeping low-fi synths as the gospel swell builds to a scream letting grimy buzzing electronic drop kick with impeccable groove, as the Weeknd talks about an ex that wasn't worth it, but less as a warning but more of an acknowledgement in a way that almost feels primal.
I wasn't entirely on board with the title track, but with this, color me intrigued for the next album! 7/5 - WonkeyDude98
Jackie is convincing in this original song of loss!V2 Comments
This feels like it shouldn't be as perfect as it is, and yet is still flawed. Granted, I like it. Troye has a lot of real charisma and personality behind his whispery vocals, the lyrics have a lot of sentiment behind them, and the beat is interesting.
But like, that drop...4/5 - WonkeyDude98
I just listened to this in full, and I doubt this will make my best list. It's not bad, but it's no Take Care, with Rihanna slurring out these bars with arguably her worst vocal performance yet, but almost everything else about this song works.
Strong 3/5, soon to be changed. - WonkeyDude98
I didn't know that Rihanna and Drake could create a song so horrible.
This song is literally unfinished. How did a song that wasn't done become such a big hit. Go to genius and read the producers annotations, he explains how the beat wasn't done.

A truly beautiful song, and a perfect way to end a great movie!V1 Comment
I hated that album, but I'll have some Mercy on this. 4/5 - ProPanda
I kinda looked over DJ Khaled's Major Key album entirely, I don't think I should have because it's a minor wreck. Sure, we had like three good songs on there, but it's telling that there are two songs on that album worse than this. -1/5 - WonkeyDude98
Not bad / I neither like nor dislike this song. This became a hit because of Jay Z's verse. - madoog
WIth good bars from Jay Z, a repetitve but catchy hook from Future, a cool beat to listen to with great production, but DJ Khaled's annoying shouting as usual, I give this a 4.5/5 (would have been 5/5 if DJ Khaled didn't shout in the song). - SelfDestructV1 Comment
This song is just pure AWESOMENESS! Especially the "Sold your soul, built a higher wall" part, just catchy!
One of their best songs of all time! Spine tingling riffs, and great vocals
The title sends chills down my spine. - WonkeyDude98
Ironically, the album doesn't have that kind of tone that the title has. - Tristan1975R5V2 Comments
This is a great song. Little Mix are way more talented and have way more personality than Fifth Harmony. The horns are great, the drums and cymbals are perfect, and the vocals are confident and empowering. This whole thing has really great energy and just makes you want to get up and dance. Why did that garbage pile All In My Head chart instead of this catchy masterpiece? - Spark_Of_Life
