Top Ten Worst Songs of 2016

The Top TenXW

1Sweatshirt - Jacob Sartorius

This is an utterly garbage and hopeless teenage pop sensation trying to sing a song about his love relationship, but despite how Jacob is trying to sound serene, it fails at there. Literally, the whole lyrics have no meaning, cringeworthy (what does a sweatshirt have to do with love? Didn't we learn from how terrible Thomas Rhett did at it? ) and don't even relate to the relationship, making Jacob seem like that one loner at a party who can't get his feelings across well (unlike Alessia Cara, who did that and actually got the feelings across). Apart from the acoustic guitar, which is played in a dull and shallow manner, there's no beat; it's nearly hollow and boring. Jacob himself sounds way too shrill that it nearly sounds like Shawn Mendes in Stitches, a song I don't like but I know for sure did much better at it than this.
Call 2010 Justin Bieber terrible, but at least he had the decency to be awfully funny and catchy in his mess called Baby. This kid has none of those two, is a ...more - Swellow

He should have been going to school instead of making Musically's. - ThePwoperMuser101

I honestly don't hate this song as much as some other people. But wow, it's a sonic disaster.

The production combined with Jacob's age and status as a white kid makes him look like that one loser at a party with an acoustic guitar (because that's basically the only thing in the beat). The lyrics are pretty thin and meaningless with no stakes to the relationship Jacob is in, and the main line in the chorus dangerously reminds me of Thomas Rhett's T-Shirt. While this isn't as bad as T-Shirt, it's still sleazy teen-pop with a transparent understanding of love. Finally, Jacob's voice...what is this? His voice is nowhere near raw enough to pull off the speak-singing he's trying, and his dead-eyed nasal delivery isn't helping matters.

Overall, 1/5. It could have been worse, but it's pretty horrible. - WonkeyDude98

Cringeworthy and I actually feel embarrassed for him. I'm 16 and I think his parents got him into this. I feel bad for him. Anyway his voice doesn't match the melody. A much more powerful voice is needed. Plus the meaning of the song is empty. It's about something that he isn't even really old enough to fully understand yet. Anyway 1/10 and he needs to wait 5 more years before he sings a song like this, with this kind of a melody. The whole point of the song is not something anyone over the age of 12 can relate to. Anyway I cringed so much when listening to the song my jaw hurt.

Its just plain stupid. The lyrics make no sense WHAT SO EVER! Even trying to put it in any sense in every possible way, not ever gonna send a clear message. EVER!

2Work from Home - Fifth Harmony

If you've seen the X-Factor, you can tell these girls for the most part are very talented, maybe not at their peak just yet, but talented. The problem is that they've become another terrible hand puppet of Simon Cowell, the same man responsible for Cher Lloyd and One Direction. So far, all the material they've put out has just been horrible. The material they're given doesn't do them any favors, the production does nothing for them, they show no personality, and they're just being marketed for sex appeal rather than for actual talent that they do in fact possess. Their material is bland, rips off other bad songs, and shows no sign of any personality. If you took away Simon Cowell, gave them some competent producers and decent material that really enabled them to shine, and more time to develop, they could actually become something special. And for the record, as horrible as the Pussycat Dolls were, they actually did have two very talented singers, Nicole Scherzinger and Melody ...more

Fun fact: Not only is the chorus a blatant ripoff of Work by Rihanna, but the beat and verses are a ripoff of Gotta Get Thru This by Daniel Bedingfield. - WonkeyDude98

I do not know why people are comparing this to Work - Rihanna feat. Drake. This sounds nothing similar to Work, not even close. Just because the song has work in the song title and came out the same year as Work, does not mean that they copied. This song sounds kind of catchy. This song got stuck in my head. "oh-oh-oh-oh" This might be the first Fifth Harmony song that I like. One of the members sounds like a baby. I am not saying that is a bad thing. - madoog

I love this song and it's so catchy - 0744rose

3M.I.L.F.$ - Fergie

Oh dear lord. What is this abomination? I see Fergie has taken the "aging pop star releasing a desperately controversial song all about sex to stay relevant by shock value" route. It didn't work with J. Lo's "Booty", it didn't work with Miley Cyrus's "Dooo It! ", and it isn't working for Fergie here. The lyrics are pathetically desperate and cringe worthy, as they're just an endless slew of confusing and stupid sex metaphors. Not to mention they contain way too many gratuitous "motherf*****s". The beat is stupidly simple and sounds like it was lifted from an unfinished DJ Snake track. Fergie's delivery is obnoxious and way too auto tuned - she sounds like if a chipmunk and Siri had a child. And what is up with the sudden gospel solo around the two minute mark? Oh, and some people are trying to defend this as a feminist anthem. Go listen to "I Am Woman" or "Respect", not this, which is more unfeminist than most men before ...more - Spark_Of_Life

Hello, please donate to our cause, we are trying to create a time machine to go back in time and snipe Fergie on her way to the studio to record this garbage pile of a song. Any contributions are accepted.

This was just released and it is already at number 6. That's how bad it is. It will probably get to #1. - Martinglez

Horrible song.

47 Years - Lukas Graham

Now that I've come to think of this, I hate this song with every fiber of my body, and I'm going to admit it in the easiest way I can.

The production here is wretched and horrible. It starts off with this nursery rhyme-esque piano tune that gets so repetitive, it feels like it's trying to hypnotize it. During the chorus, it builds up, so you don't get to hear the piano tune, but then it comes back minutes later, and it feels like an extremely lazy addition. Lukas Graham's vocals don't help it, either.

What's worse than the production is Lukas Graham's vocals. When it comes to European voices, I usually appreciate them (e.g. Sinead O'Connor or Tove Lo), but Lukas Graham's I can't stand at all. He sounds like he was singing the song before he got up in the morning, and he reeks of an extremely low range. Even worse is that his croaky voice during the high notes makes Sia's high note voice look perfect in comparison. Like I said in the previous paragraph, it nearly feels ...more - Swellow

This song is appearently supposed to be about his father, but he's only mentioned in different lines twice and one of them is just his Dad him to get friends. Everyone needs to stop defending this "meaningful" and "deep" song when it's really just a jumble of life events thrown together on a terrible beat. Easily one of the worst songs of the year. - Spark_Of_Life

OH MY GOD I HATE THIS SONG... The lyrics don't make any sense! First he gets married at eleven, then he says just like "my daddy before me". What does that even mean? We always says his age. WHY THE HELL DO WE CARE?! Next, his "woman" brings him children, apparently just so he can sing to them. How messed up is that? Next, he's saying sorry to his brother. What happened? Did he kill him? Anyway the thing that pisses me off the most about this song is how popular it is. Whenever this song comes on the radio, I always see these girls singing along, and it pisses me off so much. Bye! - jimmyjimmy

One of the worst songs I've ever heard.

5Work - Rihanna

Wow, my opinion of this has gotten worse, and Swellow just took the words right out of my mouth.

This song is unfinished. Literally. The beat. Was. Not. Finished. When. Rihanna. Wanted. To. Sing. Over. It. THAT'S A NICE IDEA. And you can really tell how it turned out. The synth's melody is clunky, awkward and lacks a powerful third note, so it's pretty unrewarding. The bassline is equally lacking in the comfortableness department, and there's no percussion to blend them together. So, pretty scummy. Also, Rihanna was singing in Caribbean on the hook, which explains why it wasn't understandable. But that doesn't change the fact that she's never sounded worse with her grating, nasal delivery bleeding through everything. Also, Drake is still on about that Meek Mill beef. He can't accept that he's already won, I guess.

Overall, an extremely weak 2/5, and that's being generous. - WonkeyDude98

Where do I even begin. I miss songs like SOS, Umbrella, and Pon de Replay. Everything was fine with Rihanna until Anti, when she suddenly decided to go rap for no reason. In the end this song sounds like she wants to rap but can't and just kinda slurs her words together. The chorus is crap, she sounds like a drunk mental patient when she sings it, which is just the words "work" "dirt" and "hurt" repeated on a continuous loop along with unintelligible that sounds like she's choking on a wad of paper. Drake's verse, while not bad, is out of place and dosen't go with the background music at all. The only good part of the song is the bridge, when she comes close to actually singing and not sounding like a mental patient. And this trash pile of a song somehow stayed at #1 for 10 WEEKS, keeping good songs like Stressed Out and I Took a Pill in Ibizia from the top spot. Another Rihanna rap song, Needed Me, is at #13 right now and looks like it's going yo be ...more

You know what? I change my opinion from my first comment here. The more I listen to this song, the more respect I lose for it, and it's not just because of how lazy the hook line is. The beat isn't even finished and sounds like something M.I.A. would make, Drake's rap part is not really fitting in the song, and Rihanna's vocals are repetitive despite how the accent changes a lot, which is a shame. However, since the radio thinks a repetitive and unfinished song is better than a song that took time to make, it gets played on a constant loop.
Despite my hate for the song, it's still not that bad compared to Work From Home by Fifth Harmony, which is even worse. - Swellow

I feel sad. Really sad. Where's the good music?

6Me Too - Meghan Trainor

From the title, I had hoped it was about an agreement between two lovers. Nope! "If I was you, I'd wanna be me too" Nice move, you make Kanye West look self-hating. The whole song is her flexing like she's a UFC wrestler. Her vocals, besides her harmonizations and the pre-chorus, reek of her lower range, and the chorus is literally rhythmic talking. The beat is pretty terrible too, with the barely-there percussion and the atrocious melody that reminds me of When I Grow Up by the Pussycat Dolls (to be specific, the guitars of that song).

-1/5, this is a disaster on all grounds. - WonkeyDude98

I agree with most of that but the comparison to "When I Grow Up" made me do a double take because I said the exact same thing the first time I heard it! I love "When I Grow Up" but not this. - theOpinionatedOne

This is probably the worst song I've ever heard. Meghan actually doesn't have a terrible voice from what I've heard of her acoustic performances, but she insists on using her voice in the most annoying ways in all of her singles, ESPECIALLY this one. She sounds like she's talking for most of it, and when she doesn't, her vocals are incredibly grating. The production on here is godawful. Seriously, what the hell is this beat? The lyrics are the worst part, though. In addition to being repetitive to no end, they have a terrible message. She's basically the equivalent of those popular girls in your average terrible teen movie who just goes around saying, "I'm so cool, and you suck! " It's not inspiring or positive, if anything it's insulting to the listener! This is just an abomination of a song and it's by far the worst song released this year, which is saying something considering how terrible of a year this has been for music.

A lot of these songs are great choices because 2016 has been a horrible year for pop music; however there is no song that has come out so far this year that is this annoying and unlistenable and makes me never want to listen to this song again. This woman's voice is so annoying and the lyrics of this piece of garbage are like do I even need to tell you why they are horrible? For example there was a line "So bless me baby. A choo! " Seriously? Do I need to tell you why it's bad? I seriously hope this piece of garbage will never be a hit because it sucks.

Why isn't this on no. 1 - 0744rose

7One Call Away - Charlie Puth

I do not understand why One Call Away is even on this list. Wow. I am shocked. Now, this is one Charlie Puth song that I like. I do not find anything wrong with the "Superman got nothing on me" lyrics. Yeah, this was a little overplayed, and I like it. One Call Away is good --- the beats and somewhat relaxing atmosphere. - madoog

Ok, maybe my other comment was too vague.

This beat is jacked straight from See You Again, except just way worse. The same clacking, chugging percussion, the same melody, it's all the same. The difference? There's no energy, no buildup, and no payoff. It's everything everyone hated about Fight Song's production, just worse.

The lyrics are some of the most underrwritten BS I've ever heard. Even without the awful Superman line on the chorus. Because Charlie Puth tries to have an element of style, he doesn't say outright that he wants to screw this girl. That leads to one of the worst first verses I've heard in my life. Part of it is, "I just wanna give ya love, come on come on come on"

KILL ME.

Oh yeah, and there's a Tyga remix that only accentuates how limp the percussion is by pushing it forward in the mix. And his verse is basically filler.

0/5. I probably shouldn't have as much seething rage for this song as I do, as Charlie Puth is a passable ...more - WonkeyDude98

Condescending, vain lyrics, absolutely poor vocals, beat ripped straight from See You Again, and Tyga. - WonkeyDude98

This song is WAY too overplayed... - EpicJake

8Team - Iggy Azalea

This song confirmed that Iggy can't sing. Her voice is atrocious in falsetto, and when combined with her nasal quality and autotune (with far too many rest notes in between on the chorus), it makes for a very grating experience. - WonkeyDude98

Oh, Iggy, just retire already. No one has cared about you since summer 2014. - Spark_Of_Life

Go back to being a stripper! This song sucks! - EthanRedmace

Man, Icky Azalea failed her comeback.

9Over Here - Rae Sremmurd

I'm typing this on my phone from my hiding place high up in a tree. There I was, listening to the radio, when suddenly blood started leaking out of my ears at an alarming rate. I barely had enough time to call the paramedics before I collapsed. When I woke up, one of the meds told me that I had lost nearly half the blood in my body. "But why? " I asked. He choked back a sob, and said, "I'm sorry, but you heard a Rae Sremmurd song. You'll be fine, but you'll have to get a blood transfusion. After all, you've been infected." Suddenly, we heard a scream from the driver compartment and the ambulance swerved off the road and hit a tree. Everyone was killed except me. I somehow managed to crawl out and heard maniacal laughter of Rae Sremmurd from the radio as their song ended. "Yes." They said. "We've been sent by Satan himself to invade your radios with our ear-raping talentlessness. And when all lovers of good music are killed by our horrendous voices ...more - Spark_Of_Life

Rae Sremmurd are not good artists, they sound like two kids who sneak out to parties every night and get drunk...

When I first heard this song, I immediately knew that it was a piece of crap. Terrible songs just keep coming and coming, and this list gets larger and larger. - madoog

This is worse than anything.

10No - Meghan Trainor

From a person who thought Meghan's Title era was awful, I was not expecting her to change into the 2000s pop-like genre, but she did, and managed to hit it worse than she did with her outdated bubblegum pop hits.

Meghan's biggest problem in the song is the lyrics. They range from being too finesse and self-righteous ("I don't need your hands all over me", ironic to say when you wanted to "get it on" in your last song, eh? ) to burning the man who is in love with her ("Call me beautiful, so original" once again, you said in DFH you wanted the guy to call you beautiful "each and every night". Make your mind up.) Eventually, the lyrics all build up and show off Meghan's vile, cruel and anti-social side, to the point the song makes her out to be a tyrant ("I don't want you to take this personal" Oy vey, Mrs. Ego.). Her vocals are also another problem. They try too hard to be Britney Spears-like, but they are way too low and ...more - Swellow

Where to begin with this one? I think Meghan Trainor has a complexion that disallows her to make a song that sounds less than a decade out of date. The production is really weird. Every element sounds oddly out-of-place and adds to the outdated clutter.

Easily the biggest culprit is that weird whistly synth on the chorus which sounds like it's laughing in your face after the decent instrumental buildup leading to nothing. As for how it sounds, it's really subtle and distant, giving the chorus this barely creepy atmosphere. The percussion is clattery and everywhere in the song, it never stops, which gets annoyinga and grating fast. The underlying guitar lick sounds pretty decent, but it gels far too smoothly with Meghan Trainor's insufferable still lower range.

The lyrics are also reminiscent of those early 2000s acts that would make you want to
gag. They seem to paint Meghan Trainor trying to get an annoying guy away, but it's framed in such an obnoxious and vile way ...more - WonkeyDude98

OOH NEW FUN FACT: NO's melody is a ripoff of Summer Love by Justin Timberlake. - WonkeyDude98

I guess making bad 50s pop music wasn't enough for Meghan Trainor, so she instead jumped ahead to early 2000s pop. And of course she takes the worst parts of the genre, like always. Production that sounds like something Max Martin would make in his sleep for NSYNC, and annoying personality and lyrics that remind me way too much of Destiny's Child. The sad part? This is probably her BEST single so far, since it's only annoying rather than horrifying or disrespectful.

And that 'blah, blah, blah' line. It was a sign, if you ran out of lyrics, you should've stopped there.

The Contenders

11Treat You Better - Shawn Mendes

Wow, and I hated Stitches. When I first saw this here I thought it was just boarding on the Shawn Mendes hate train, but yeah, this is insufferable. Avril Lavigne tried this and made the most obnoxious song ever. Jesse McCartney tried this and failed. Old Dominion tried this and failed. What makes Shawn Mendes? Vocally and musically, this has the same flaws as Stitches (awful harmonizations, awkward line breaks, overly loud drums), but the much worse set of lyrics makes it a 0/5. - WonkeyDude98

I hate Shawn Mendes so much. Mainly because of his waste of potential. I actually genuinely liked Something Big, but after that, he just started making such generic, boring, borderline awful music. It started with Stitches and now this dreck? "Break up with him, I'm the better choice." I'm done.

This is suffering from the same problems as "Jealous": admittedly good instrumentals being ruined by a lackluster vocal performance and a horrendous set of lyrics/subject matter. But unlike "Jealous", this isn't catchy enough to save anything from going in one ear and out the other. No one is going to remember this is five years. - Spark_Of_Life

Jealous < Treat You Better. That dull, heaving shlock can bite me. - WonkeyDude98

Stitches was good. But this thing? This song is bringing back the "nice guy" mentality! AND THAT'S NOT A GOOD THING!

12One Dance - Drake

This is some of the most phoned in Drake has ever been. He hasn't sounded this bored since Started From The Bottom, you know, ONE OF THE WORST SONGS OF ALL TIME. The beat is passable on an aesthetic level, but on a technical level it's just awful. The sparse piano and snappy drums sound unfinished, which is funny because Drake was on a song this year that literally was unfinished (Work). Yeah, still a 1/5, not even one of my three least favorites on Views. I mean, when you have Hotline Bling, Pop Style, Feel No Ways, and CHILD'S PLAY on your album, you have competition. - WonkeyDude98

I don't get why this song was popular. This is one of the worst songs on Views, and that's saying a lot, because Views was a terrible album. The lyrics are just typical Drake trying his hardest to sound romantic and fail miserably. The vocals and production are what really kill the song, though. The vocals sound lazy and the beat is snappy, making the worst mixture possible, which makes the song boring as hell.

How the hell did this get to number one and stay there for about 10 weeks. Views is one of the worst albums of all time and this is the worst song from it

This is just awful, and so is the rest of Drake's music as well.

13Don't Mind - Kent Jones

Okay the ONLY reason I didn't vote this damn song was because I saw Meghan Trainor higher on the list and obviously saw her first, so I voted her. I'm in middle school and kids my age are immature as hell so they were singing this song a lot. I was praying that one of them made it up and it wasn't an actual song because songs get PUBLISHED and if THAT piece of scrap song got published... well guess what? About a month later I hear it on the radio. That was when I REALLY lost hope for music. Somehow I still had some after Work but DAMN this song doesn't want optimism for people that listen to good music, does it? I mean seriously, she says pardon my French after speaking Japanese. What the hell! Imagine someone who's never heard this song asks you to tell them what the song is about and you say, "someone dates people that speak different languages" there. That's what the song's about. So amazing. I could listen to that al daay. While cringing.

This is an utterly torturous piece of garbage. I have no idea how many cultures he is trying to mix with sexual activities, and mixing up languages. This is terrible, and I hope Kent Jones is a one hit wonder. It is catchy though, so 1/5. - ProPanda

Nobody cares about how you have hookers of different nationalities on your bed and in the passenger seat of your Bugatti. I hope these guys fade away, because this one managed to come when the already terrible Gates went away. - Swellow

14Play that Song - Train

The thing I used to love about train is how odd and out there they had been. Their lyrics always made close to no sense, the singer didn't have the classic good voice, but it all fit together with their odd pop/rock quirky vibes. This song... is honestly the most terrible thing I have ever heard. The theme is boring, hopping onto the bandwagon of "play the music my chick likes so we can bang". It even stoops down to a Michael Jackson level of conceded (the one that makes her think ooof me), which makes it feel like all of the other pop songs where the singer is just an ass trying to money.

I am aware the band paid for the rights to Heart and Soul, but why in god's name would they want it? Heart and Soul is a classic, don't get me wrong, but god, adding lyrics, and this monstrosity of lyrics in particular, was just such the wrong way to go. They attempted to turn a classic song into a pop/dance hit. It's garbage. I'm not even sure what that instrument that sounds like ...more

Guys. I discovered something. I really hate Train. I really do. When I heard a couple seconds of this, I had to turn it off. That's how much Pat's voice annoys me. It's a real shame that this song will most likely be played 1000389529325 times on Adult Pop Radio and get to like the Top 20 on the charts or something. Because I can't stand ANYTHING from this awful band. - djpenquin999

And the award for the best Todd In The Shadows impression goes to... - WonkeyDude98

Annoying, high pitched voice, pathetic lyrics...a complete TRAIN wreck! - Spark_Of_Life

15Formation - Beyonce

It wouldn't be a Beyonce album without the worst song on it becoming the hit, of course. This song's a mess, both musically and lyrically. The lyrics have already been discussed here, but... Oh god, that instrumentation is terrible. It sounds like a bunch of random trap noises being thrown together without any sort of cohesion or taste. If this becomes the only hit off the album, I'm going to be pissed, because the rest of the album is actually really good. - Zach808

I've come to re-listen to the song and it's only gotten worse.

Like Zach said, the production is HORRIBLE. As in, possibly the worst production I've heard on any song this year. The echoey vocal sample carries the entire track and sounds like a stoner jumping around like a fool, the boinging chintzy melody sounds like a glitched out N64, the trap percussion is so bland that it's barely there, the horns have no place in the mix, the bass sounds like it wants to kill me, and the processed synth line reminds me of the worst parts of Rae Sremmurd's My X. It's an absolute mess that makes the song an active chore to listen to.

Of course, the lyrics are pretty horrible, as Cookie said. They range from her haters and their belief that she is Illuminati, taking her boy to Red Lobster, and slaying. The skits added in there for the first half the song are also kriffing annoying, and only add to how insufferable the song's writing is.

This is musical Chinese water torture, ...more - WonkeyDude98

This is probably the worst song on Lemonade(an actually great album). The production is a damn mess and the lyrics are trash. It is sad that this had to be the biggest hit from Lemonade. 6 Inch and Freedom were more deserving of being hits.

I listened to this song once. Before then, I had faith in the future of humanity. - Spark_Of_Life

Possibly the most overrated song of this year. Not only is the decent beat riddled with Desiigner's weird vocal sounds, the lyrical theme is basically Desiigner's ramble of two sports cars (with extra product placement! ) that look like pandas. People need to stop defending these "deep and meaningful" raps when they are really cluttered messes. - Swellow

18Timmy Turner - Desiigner

Wow, now he made a song about TIMMY TURNER? What has music come to? - Gamecubesarecool193

Seriously? First a song about a Panda, and now there's a song about Timmy Turner, all by one person?

This song proves that music has become crap, and proves how immature the artists have become. Proves how much music can change in 4 years.

This song is awesome. The gospel swell is intense, the high-pitched synth is somehow not irritating, and if you look into the lyrics you'll see that it's a complex story of Desiigner willing to own up to his own sins and admitting his own lostness. The verses don't make much sense until you merge it with the pitch-black chorus. This is something I never thought I'd hear from Desiigner. 5/5. - WonkeyDude98

KSI should have stayed a "one hit" wonder while he was safe with the relatively guilty-pleasure-worthy Keep Up (a song I (I'm sorry Puga) actually like), but now he resorts to plagiarism, this time taking from the amazing House Of Pain classic. Yay...0/5 - WonkeyDude98

Whoever told KSI that he would make a great hit singer should be flogged. - Swellow

This cringeworthy song legitimately pisses me off. These talentless hacks steal... I mean, sample 95% of the entire thing from House Of Pain's 1992 masterpiece of the same name. Except this piece of trash has NONE of the charm, catchiness, or badassery of the old one. And now all the rap worshippers are going to think that Waka Flocka Flame and KSI are creators of those sick bagpipes and the clever lyrics when they're not. Skip this awful abomination at ALL COSTS. - Spark_Of_Life

20Me, Myself, and I - G-Eazy

At first, I liked this song. Then, I thought it was average. Then, I thought it was bad. Now, I think it's garbage. Even though songs have fallen harder over time than this one, I don't think a song has fallen this fast.

This song is the definition of wasted potential. Not on G-Eazy's part: sure his lyrics aren't inherently that bad and his flow is actually decent if not a little rigid, but he's really not that special and not a good rapper.

No, the lost potential is at fault of Bebe Rexha as well as the production. Bebe Rexha is an absolute powerhouse of a vocalist, almost at the level of Charli XCX, but between this and Hey Mama...is this the road she wants to take? The hook is SANG BY BEBE REXHA, FOR G-EAZY. WOW, NICE MOVE, NARCISSIST. It doesn't help that her voice is grating and shrill when it isn't breathy and ragged. The production on this is fantastic. The piano riffs are on key, the trap percussion is bone-chilling and rhythmic, and the hi-hats come at the best ...more - WonkeyDude98

If it wasn't for the admittedly good chorus, no one would remember this song. G-Eazy has absolutely no personality whatsoever, and none of his lyrics are memorable in the slightest. - Zach808

Not great, not terrible, just okay

How dare this share the same name as the de la soul classic.
