REVIEW

This song’s very ambitious & innovative.

There are various elements I can spot in this song that not many other people can.

For instance, many people could be like "It’s like a stereotypical pop song with horrible lyrics"
That’s called under-analyzing. & I’m not simply getting that vibe.

If you listen carefully, there are elements of pop, rock, hip-hop, techno & musical theatre consisted within this song.
Putting these elements into 1 simple pop song is indeed very ambitious & innovative.
& that’s what I love about it.

The funky guitars & the deep bass really contribute to the song’s catchiness & can really pull the listeners in.

As for the lyrics, I thought they were composed in a way that’s like most pop songs at first.
But after a few more listens, I realized this certainly wasn’t the case.

A woman symbolizing herself as "Gold" to a man in order to get them together certainly hasn’t been done before in the music industry.
& if it has, I obviously haven’t heard that song yet.
So to me, this romantic concept’s surely brought something new to the table.

Victoria is a very unique & captivating pop singer.
The melodical compositions bear very strong Jessie J influences. Which is considered very popular for this generation.

I also love how husky Victoria’s voice is now. Very similar to voice actress E.G. Daily's.
We rarely have women with such unique singing voices these days so I’m glad they’re finally being brought to the mainstream.

The repetitive rap oddly reminds me of Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst.
As a ‘94 kid who enjoys watching professional wrestling, this is always a plus. Very nostalgic.

Overall … it’s very funky, catchy, infectious & makes itself innovative by capturing various genres that exist in modern music.

It really does supreme … dare I say it … justice. *gets hit with a tomato*

To conclude, this song’s worth constantly hitting the replay button on. :D
