The current musical trend is trap/reggaeton based songs, fast tempo is not in right now, so it's just a matter of the time she released it. if she would have released that song in 2011 maybe it would have slayed.

Raggaeton?! Where? Ivy Queen where you at?

I think it's a combination of people not expecting artists to change or evolve, rejecting Lorde's new sound, and the fact that the song is a grower. I didn't like it upon first listen, but after hearing it a few times I really love it!

I'll be myself until they f*ucking close the coffin.

I miss the old Lorde. The song is lame in my opinion.

Because we're living in a dark period of time, when trash music is being played in the radio and people stan random DJ's or nonsense music, streams are overrated, we have a clown as a President (USA of course:diane:), Awards shows are lame just to get views, among several circumstances.

We definitely need a savior now more than ever.

I don't mean straight forward reggaeton songs, but songs based on or that sample reggaeton beats; such as Shape of you, Cold Water, Sorry, Cheap Thrills, Touch, Final Song and so on...

The song isn't great...the instrumental is too happy vs her emo vocals...it feels forced and she's just trying to appeal to more people, but it didn't work and the lack of promo is also a factor

All the people I talked to said that they wanted/expected something like Royals/Tennis Court/Team :rip:

I don't understand, that was way back in 2013/2014, it's so annoying when people put others in boxes, let her evolve and experiment with her sound.

I went in with no expectations of what she was gonna sound like and I ended up loving it.

It's not good. I was so excited for it because I think her debut album is stellar. But Green Light gets so tiring after a few listens. And her voice is cringe-worthy. Oh and the video was a bust.

Song is really too complex. Different keys in the intro and chorus. I loved how she changed the meter too. she also did that on Team I believe. But yea Pop right now is very linear and the new lorde song is like I said, complex

Lorde can experiment with her sound if it makes her feel credible as an artist. But it's too soon for her and I want more chill music like royals and tennis court
