23 3.01 Lay Down Your Weapons (K Koke feat. Rita Ora)

Hot right now: Frenchie, Cody Burnett, Riser, Jordan Lee (6)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Dobbo, Cqmerqn, Rhoda Camel, danG (0)

To the surprise of nobody, Lay Down Your Weapons is the first track to drop. A top 20 hit in 2013, when Rita had just brought her hugely successful ORA era to a close, she provided the chorus to K Koke's sole UK hit to date. It didn't stick around for long, spending only two weeks top 40, and hasn't made any sort of lasting impression. It's not shocking, considering K Koke's a pretty terrible rapper and Rita's chorus is the only decent part - I'd have preferred a Pt. 2 version!


Posted by: Jonjo Sep 14 2019, 07:55 PM

Yeah. No surprise with that one. So nothingy and forgettable.

Posted by: Nick F1 Sep 14 2019, 10:13 PM

Posted by: Jade Sep 14 2019, 10:20 PM

'Lay Down Your Weapons' was a bit uneventful at the time and definitely feels dated now. Not a surprising last placer at all!

Posted by: Rhoda Camel Sep 14 2019, 10:25 PM

bye

Posted by: SamJudd Sep 15 2019, 11:42 AM

Not surprised, a very forgettable track that coasted off Rita's massive success. Think 'Girls', 'New York Raining' or 'R.I.P.' (2018 version) will be the next ones out.

Posted by: Jay ☆ Sep 15 2019, 09:33 PM

Lay Down Your Weapons definitely the low point of her career, glad we're mostly on the same page with that x

Posted by: Jay ☆ Sep 15 2019, 09:54 PM

22 4.35 New York Raining (Charles Hamilton feat. Rita Ora)

Hot right now: George.keh (9)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Dobbo, Cqmerqn, Rhoda Camel (0)

Rita's collaboration with American rapper Charles Hamilton is the next song out! New York Raining reached #29 in the UK charts in June 2015, which remained Rita's lowest peaking single until 2019. The track appears on the deluxe edition of the season one soundtrack for Fox's TV series Empire.


Posted by: George.keh Sep 15 2019, 10:26 PM

I really like NYR and think it gets way too much hate

Posted by: JosephStyles Sep 16 2019, 06:21 AM

I like New York Raining! I don't love it though and that's definitely the right point for it to drop out.

Posted by: Jonjo Sep 16 2019, 06:31 PM

Same as Joseph, really. It's better than people would probably remember it being, but it's definitely not an essential and is in the right place for it's fall out of the rate.

Posted by: Jordan Lee Sep 17 2019, 11:28 AM

Not surprised at that bottom two.

For me Girls and How We Do are her weakest two efforts but these arenít far behind so Iím not too gutted to see them drop out at this point.

Feeling like we could be in for a Anywhere, I Will Never Let You Down, Let You Love Me top 3 perhaps.

Phoenix era to do better than ORA.

And Body On Me to be her highest collaboration.

21 5.10 Shine Ya Light

Hot right now: Calum (8.5)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Brť, Cqmerqn, Tawdry Hepburn, Rhoda Camel (0)

'Shine Ya Light' was Rita's first ever post-album single and is remembered for being the song she made her X-Factor performance debut with. It's not the mostly fondly remembered track among fans though, as can be seen by that 5.10 average. Luckily, the followup single was a bit stronger.


Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Sep 17 2019, 04:00 PM

'Shine Ya Light' is honestly my least favourite song of this decade.

Posted by: ...ready for it Sep 20 2019, 02:32 AM

No major losses yet.

Posted by: pippa Sep 20 2019, 02:43 PM

No surprises just yet but there is likely to be one or 2 further in the countdown.

Posted by: Jonjo Sep 20 2019, 09:40 PM

20 5.19 Girls (feat. Cardi B, Bebe Rexha & Charli XCX)

Hot right now: NickF1, Doug, JosephStyles (10)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Brť, SamJudd, Liam, Cqmerqn, Jack, Mack (0)

At #20 and as I predicted, ridiculously low here, is 'Girls'. I remember when I, and most others, first heard it during BBC Radio 1's big weekend back in 2017, there was a massive buzz surrounding it. Everyone begged for it to be a single as it seemed to be "an anthem for the gays/bisexuals", it got a release almost a year later and suddenly everyone hated it? Lmao. Like, they HATE it. I understand the criticisms that the chorus feels weaker than when she performed it (it's why I couldn't rate it too high despite liking it a lot) but I feel it's really harshly scored :'( - Let's blame Cardi B.

Forever underrated </3


Posted by: Frenchie Sep 20 2019, 09:47 PM

Definitely was treated way too harshly, think it deserved better.

Posted by: JosephStyles Sep 20 2019, 09:55 PM

Yup I find the criticisms of Girls to be very harsh too, I absolutely love the song and always have! Cardi's verse goes OFF *.*

Posted by: Nick F1 Sep 20 2019, 09:56 PM

smashh, doesn't deserve such a hate.

Posted by: JosephStyles Sep 21 2019, 07:10 PM

19 5.44 R.I.P. (SofŪa Reyes feat. Rita Ora & Anitta)

Hot right now: Nick F1 (10)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Cqmerqn (0)

One of Rita's most recent tracks saw her team up with Latin pop stars SofŪa Reyes (former BJSC artist of mine *.*) and Anitta to record Spanglish bop R.I.P. The track is Rita's only single not to peak in the UK top 100, which is a shame after dipping in and out of the Spotify top 200 meant it can't have been far off! The track is very infectious I find and likely suffered from people being less familiar with it.


Posted by: Jonjo Sep 21 2019, 07:32 PM

Ngl thats down at the bottom with NYR & LDYW for me. Oops. Really not as good as it's made out to be, imo. sad.gif

Original R.I.P >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Posted by: Jack Sep 22 2019, 10:05 AM

'Girls' is trash and got what it deserves, terrible production, terrible lyrics, Cardi's verse is trash and so is Bebe's. Not underrated at all in my opinion!

Posted by: Jay ☆ Sep 22 2019, 06:22 PM

18 6.50 Carry On (Kygo & Rita Ora)

Hot right now: Cqmerqn, Nick F1 (10)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Calum, George.keh, HausofF, Tawdry Hepburn (3)

Carry On is one of two singles to make the UK Top 40 for Rita in 2019! This collaboration with Kygo made it to #26, spending a respectable 8 weeks inside the Top 40. It is taken from the soundtrack to Detective Pikachu and plays during the end credits of the film. Rita plays Dr. Ann Laurent in the movie!


Posted by: JosephStyles Sep 22 2019, 06:37 PM

Carry On proved to be a grower for me, the production is lush and suits Rita perfectly! heart.gif

Posted by: Jade Sep 22 2019, 06:43 PM

No particularly big losses so far although 'Carry On' was better than I was expecting for a Kygo soundtrack song! Definitely a grower.

Posted by: Jonjo Sep 23 2019, 12:26 AM

I can take or leave Carry On. It's def one of her weakest singles, but it's a cute bop.

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Sep 23 2019, 03:54 PM

I feel like she's had far worse songs than 'Girls' which have done well, but I'm not really considering it crashing out in 20th place to be a loss.

Posted by: Nick F1 Sep 24 2019, 02:23 PM

CO definitely to low mad.gif cry.gif

Posted by: 365 Sep 25 2019, 03:00 PM

17 7.03 Coming Home (Sigma & Rita Ora)

Hot right now: Cqmerqn, Nick F1, Cqmerqn, Dobbo (10)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Tawdry Hepburn, Rhoda Camel (3)

A big jump into the 7 averages now, with Rita's rather by the books, but serviceable Sigma collab 'Coming Home'. This was another Rita/ X Factor performance and came in the year where she herself was a full time judge. It was a decent hit for both parties in the end, charting at #15 and being certified Gold.


Posted by: JosephStyles Sep 25 2019, 03:12 PM

Coming Home is definitely made by Rita's vocals heart.gif

Posted by: Frenchie Sep 25 2019, 03:22 PM

Yeah I really think she suits more upbeat dance vibes as she sounds soo good on 'Coming Home'

Posted by: dobbo Sep 25 2019, 06:28 PM

WAAAAY too low, fantastic song.

Posted by: Jonjo Sep 25 2019, 07:15 PM

Coming Home >> Lonely Together

oops.

Posted by: pippa Sep 25 2019, 07:44 PM

Coming Home should be much higher.

Posted by: Nick F1 Sep 25 2019, 08:36 PM

Oh my Gosh another one waaay to low. pirate.gif pirate.gif pirate.gif

Posted by: pippa Sep 25 2019, 08:42 PM

I did think this would be at the lowest, close to the Top 10.

Posted by: Jonjo Sep 25 2019, 09:20 PM

16 7.09 Only Want You (feat. 6LACK)

Hot right now: NickF1, Joe, Jack (10)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: George.keh, Feel_The_Fever, Rhoda Camel (4)

Up next is the last single from 'Phoenix'. It is the 2nd song from the era to drop out, but has a good score. One I thought would be slightly higher though. The video sees Rita Ora's future Oscar winning acting *.* in a very "homage to 'Everytime' by Britney" kinda video. No wonder NickF1 stans it kink.gif Oh and that's yet another one of Nick's 10's dropping out lmao!

Posted by: Jack Sep 26 2019, 09:05 AM

'Only Want You' is stunning sad.gif So much better than other singles that did okay for her like 'Girls' and 'Shine Ya Light' - I probably even prefer it to 'How We Do (Party)' and 'RIP' now!

Posted by: Jay ☆ Sep 26 2019, 09:19 AM

And hereís me thinking that Coming Home was slightly too high. kink.gif Not really an ultimate fave for me.

Poor underrated Only Want You. sad.gif Other than R.I.P. (2019) itís her only single to miss the UK Top 40.

15 7.28 Poison

Hot right now: LMLou (11)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Brť (3)

Sorry for the delay! My section irritatingly coincided with my trip away.

In 2015, a year after I Will Never Let You Down, Rita finally released its follow-up. Poison was Rita's final "held back" single release with pre-orders and charted at #3 in the very last Sunday chart. It was supposed to lead Rita's second album after the Calvin-produced tracks were scrapped and Rita hit the drawing board again, but of course, as we know, it never ended up seeing an album.


Posted by: George.keh Oct 1 2019, 07:18 PM

Probably in my top 3, Rita singles that middle 8 is quite something, sad to see it this low

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Oct 2 2019, 11:24 AM

It's OK, but very forgettable.

Posted by: Jonjo Oct 2 2019, 01:05 PM

LOOOVE Poison. It's very addictive. I find myself not wanting to go back to it too much, but once I do, I end up repeating it like 3 times in a row laugh.gif

Posted by: Jay ☆ Oct 2 2019, 04:22 PM

Poison wub.gif It unfortunately seems a little forgotten about (not helped by Rita choosing not to perform it on her recent tour).

Posted by: Jay ☆ Oct 2 2019, 04:39 PM

14 7.32 How We Do (Party)

Hot right now: LMLou, SamJudd (10)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: George.keh, Tawdry Hepburn (2)

How We Do (Party) served as Rita's debut solo single in the United States, Canada, Australia & New Zealand! Released in March 2012, it peaked at #62, #68, #9 and #5 respectively in those countries. To date it remains Rita's highest chart position as a lead artist in the US. It was held back as the second single in the UK & Ireland (following R.I.P.) and it became a huge hit in both countries, peaking at #1! Despite this, it wasn't included in the set list of Rita's most recent tour Phoenix World Tour. Judging by it finishing 14th here, it seems that a lot of her BuzzJack fans wouldn't have been too dismayed by its omission!

Party and party and party and party and party and party and party and party #cleanversion x


Posted by: JosephStyles Oct 2 2019, 05:23 PM

How We Do was the first song of Rita's I really loved! Still remains a fun track now, shame it wasn't on the Phoenix tour, the only major omission for me!

Posted by: pippa Oct 2 2019, 06:52 PM

This is a middle of the road single from Rita, not her best but very far from her worst.

Posted by: Wall Oct 2 2019, 06:57 PM

Poison is her best middle 8.

How we do should have been much higher.

Posted by: Wall Oct 2 2019, 07:02 PM

Actually Poison is in her best 5

1. I will never let you down
2. Anywhere
3. Poison
4. How We Do
5. Girls (not Soz)

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Oct 2 2019, 07:36 PM

'How We Do' is a third-rate 'Last Friday Night' (if 'Domino' is a second-rate version).

Posted by: Jordan Lee Oct 2 2019, 11:15 PM

How We Do stayed too long tbh. One of her weakest singles for sure.

Posted by: pippa Oct 3 2019, 03:46 PM

Her singles have such varying styles when all put together.
Rita hasn't fully found the sound she is happiest with.


Posted by: 365 Oct 3 2019, 06:32 PM

13 7.40 Radioactive

Hot right now: Liam (11)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Cqm (0)

Cqm displaying awful taste shocker! Radioactive is a BAWP, and should have done so much better than its #18 peak. In fact, I was sure this was a top 10 until I just checked. OOP. Poor flop sad.gif


Posted by: George.keh Oct 3 2019, 07:07 PM

I would place Radioactive slightly higher.

'Radioactive' was bearable in comparison to the rest of the garbage that came from that era, but still only average.

12 7.43 Body On Me (feat. C***s B***n)

R.I.P. to the bullshit: Joe. (0)

Who wants to be new mod???!!!!!1!>!>!>!!?!?!>1./ Joe showing that LACK of actual taste. WTH. Body On Me is a massive B O P. It was a major highlight on her Phoenix tour too. Do I wish there was a version without C***s B***n? Ofc, but I'm not begrudging this masterpiece! Her 2nd best song ever. I was gutted it only went top 30 though. Wasn't that due to it being like a mid-week (Wed) release or something though? ICR.

But anyway, a masterpiece and I am SO happy I got to do the commentary for this heart.gif


Posted by: JosephStyles Oct 5 2019, 10:12 PM

Body On Me is STUNNING. Chris Brown is ofc an awful person but that doesn't stop the song being sublime. A highlight on both tours recently as well!!

I think more than anything it was that awkward transition period to OA/OS which screwed a lot of tracks around 2015 out of getting a better peak. Kind of similar to how 'Love Me Like You' from the same time has a deceptively low peak.

Great song! She definitely has worse finishing higher.

11 7.56 Hot Right Now (DJ Fresh feat. Rita Ora)

Hot right now: Jade (11)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: HausofF, blacksquare (4)

Rita's very first hit finishes just outside the top 10 here, despite getting an 11 from Jade! Hot Right Now gave DJ Fresh his second #1 and introduced Rita to the public, kickstarting her hat-trick of #1 singles from her debut. Rita performed the song on both her recent tours, with the energy levels always rapidly increasing during this track!!

'For You' making the top 10 seems really quite odd though.

Posted by: Nick F1 Oct 8 2019, 11:40 AM

IWNLYD is overrated
Not even close to her best singles.

And For You is even worst.





Posted by: Jonjo Oct 8 2019, 11:46 AM

Nick.

Shut. Yo'. Mowf.

Posted by: Jay ☆ Oct 8 2019, 12:03 PM

As far as I’m concerned, I Will Never Let You Down and Anywhere aren’t far removed from each other... both are euphoric pop. So for me, IWNLYD showed what she can be capable of & it still holds up as one of her very best!

For You in the top 10 doesn’t shock me! If it’s low top 10 then that’s about right for me.

Posted by: dobbo Oct 8 2019, 01:03 PM

For You is terrible agreed on that.

But IWNLYD is by some way her best track, hopefully it beats the overrated Anywhere.

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Oct 8 2019, 01:08 PM

'RIP', 'Lonely Together' and 'For You' are the ones I'd boot out of the top 10.

Posted by: Jordan Lee Oct 8 2019, 01:44 PM

I love all of Radioactive, Body On Me and Hot Right Now.

Radioactive is one of the major highs of her debut era for me. I totally donít remember that official video for it though!

Hot Right Now is definitely my favourite Rita UK #1 too.

Posted by: pippa Oct 8 2019, 03:35 PM

For You, i really like it and welcome it getting so far.
A top 5 finish would be welcoming.

Posted by: Jonjo Oct 8 2019, 04:23 PM

The main culprits for being in the top 10 over others for me are, Your Song and the overrated Lonely Together.

Posted by: JosephStyles Oct 8 2019, 04:25 PM

Personally I'd swap R.I.P. for Body On Me and it's otherwise great! Though I'd personally have Girls there too, probably over For You, but that's not a remotely surprising absence kink.gif

Posted by: Jordan Lee Oct 8 2019, 10:13 PM

Lonely Together is overrated for sure.

I feel Aviciis passing perhaps has it in higher regards to people?


Posted by: dobbo Oct 8 2019, 10:16 PM

Not sure on that one! It was extremely popular on here when it was released. I was never massive on it myself but it's a decent track.

When it was released Without You seemed to be far more loved on here if I remember (and across the board I remember Twitter and Popjustice preferring that too)

Posted by: dobbo Oct 8 2019, 10:32 PM

Not sure on the other platforms but I definitely don't recall Without You being lauded on here, it was branded as very generic.

Anyway let's keep this about Rita tongue.gif

Posted by: JosephStyles Oct 9 2019, 12:33 PM

Lonely Together was popular before Avicii's passing for sure! I certainly always loved it.

Posted by: pippa Oct 9 2019, 02:54 PM

Avicii's passing didnt change my opinion of the song, i found it enjoyable before the sad news broke.

Posted by: Nick F1 Oct 9 2019, 06:59 PM

Lonely Together got me on first spin. Such a magical song!

Posted by: pippa Oct 9 2019, 07:22 PM

Lonely Together i liked almost immediately, For You took longer but i do slightly prefer it to Lonely Together.

10 7.62 For You (Liam Payne & Rita Ora) [one 11]

Hot right now: Brť (11)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Cqmerqn, LMLou (0)

Rita's collaboration with Liam Payne lands at #10! For You was recorded for the soundtrack of the movie Fifty Shades Freed, and was released in January 2018. After entering at #11, it eventually climbed to its peak of #8 in its sixth week of availability, and remained in the top 10 for four weeks! For You is certified gold in the UK. It notably reached #1 in Germany, where a CD single was made available! The duo performed together at the 2018 Brit Awards.

About right for For You! Great song and by far Liam's best as a solo artist.

Posted by: dobbo Oct 9 2019, 09:53 PM

The hell was I doing giving that a 6? blink.gif

Posted by: Jordan Lee Oct 9 2019, 09:57 PM

I love For You

Thereís definitely not 9 Rita singles what Iíd say are better than it I actually think it should be higher

Posted by: Jay ☆ Oct 9 2019, 10:35 PM

For You is great! Definitely a career highlight for Liam. The POWER of associating with Rita!

Posted by: pippa Oct 10 2019, 04:35 PM

For You is the best Liam song to date, none of his other releases are within a throw of it.

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Oct 11 2019, 12:12 PM

A very beige song.

Posted by: Jonjo Oct 11 2019, 09:31 PM

09 7.62 R.I.P. (Rita Ora feat. Tinie Tempah) [two 11's]

Hot right now: HarryEzra, Cody Burnett (11)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Tawdry Hepburn (1)

Up next is Rita's first single as lead artist. 'R.I.P' is a storming debut. So much attitude and really hits hard! It's really quite under appreciated in all honesty. It cleverly samples Nneka - Heartbeat and the song is just such a fiery and fierce song that just delivers on each and every listen. One of my absolute faves from her and it scored her, her 2nd UK #1 single! SMASH!


Posted by: JosephStyles Oct 11 2019, 09:54 PM

R.I.P. was a brilliant debut single - high quality and it stood out, though she's topped it loads since! I'd have put it a little lower actually, but it's still great.

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Oct 12 2019, 12:27 PM

'R.I.P' is just god-awful noise to me.

Posted by: JosephStyles Oct 13 2019, 03:05 PM

8 7.94 Your Song

Hot right now: Feel_The_Fever (11)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Dobbo (0)

Rita's comeback single in 2017, co-written by Ed Sheeran of course, kicked off the Phoenix era in style. Peaking at #7 and becoming Rita's biggest selling track (of course, until later that year), Your Song proved that Rita could still achieve a hit single after Body On Me's disappointing performance over 18 months before. The track has always seemed to get a lukewarm response on Buzzjack, but obviously its fans came out to support it in this rate, receiving only 4 scores less than 7!


Posted by: Nick F1 Oct 13 2019, 05:57 PM

YS should be around no5

Posted by: George.keh Oct 13 2019, 06:06 PM

About right for Your Song for me (if not too high)

Posted by: Frenchie Oct 13 2019, 06:16 PM

It wasn't my fave when it first came out, but 'Your Song' deffo grew on me so this position seems fair.

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Oct 13 2019, 08:07 PM

I always had a bit of a soft spot for 'Your Song'.

Posted by: Jonjo Oct 13 2019, 11:39 PM

YS is cute. But I'm kinda bored of it now. I'd have preferred a few other tracks in the top 10 over it, personally.

EDIT: Also, Ritual still being in *.* S L A Y !!

Posted by: pippa Oct 14 2019, 06:21 PM

Your Song is one of her top end singles.

7 8.07 Black Widow Iggy Azalea feat. Rita Ora

Hot right now: Nick F1, George.keh, Josh, Cqmerqn, JosephStyles, Calum, Jay, Cody Burnett (10)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Feel_The_Fever, Rhoda Camel (5)

Next up is Rita's collaboration with Iggy Azalea! The release of Black Widow directly followed on from Iggy's huge US #1 hit Fancy, and thankfully the huge success continued. This hit #3 in the US, making it Rita's biggest hit there to date! The track was co-written by Katy Perry and was originally intended for her own album Prism. Its lyrical theme is regarding revenge following on from a failed relationship.


Posted by: Riser Oct 25 2019, 02:13 AM

Ohhh, well that explains Black Widow sounding so similar to Dark Horse! I'm trying to imagine both of those ending up on Prism laugh.gif

Posted by: JosephStyles Oct 25 2019, 07:22 AM

LOVE Black Widow, did from my very first listen! Video is incredible too heart.gif

Posted by: pippa Oct 25 2019, 02:29 PM

I enjoy Black Widow, but, i think i like it more now than when it was released.

Posted by: Jonjo Oct 30 2019, 11:21 PM

6 8.18 Doing It Charli XCX feat. Rita Ora

Hot right now: ...ready for it, blacksquare (11) | Jade, Jase, George.keh, Bre, Josh!, Joe, Jay, Cremey, Rhoda Camel (10)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Dobbo (0), LMLou (1)

Just missing out on the top 5 is Rita's first collaboration with Charli XCX, 'Doing It'. This went on to be a big top 10 hit for them, peaking at #8 and going Silver. It's a delicous slice of pop. Hooks and melodies galore. I'm surprised to research it didn't do anything in the US... I assumed it was a low BBH100 hit for them, but nope. Deserved better tbh.


Posted by: Feel_The_Fever Oct 31 2019, 12:58 AM

Prob came in the right place.

Posted by: Jay ☆ Oct 31 2019, 03:23 AM

J'adore wub.gif One of Charli & Rita's very best singles... I'd definitely have it within Rita's top 5 here.

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Oct 31 2019, 10:24 AM

It's an enjoyable bop, but I don't exactly return to it that often.

I remember at the time being glad it made the top 10 though, I wasn't sure it would with how messily the release/pre-order situation played out.

Posted by: JosephStyles Oct 31 2019, 12:36 PM

Still goes off *.* my favourite Charli song!

Posted by: pippa Oct 31 2019, 02:02 PM

The big top 5 ahead.
I look forward to how it turns out now.

Posted by: Nick F1 Oct 31 2019, 10:32 PM

Doing It a bit to high, actually way to high. I would put it in top 16 - 20

Posted by: Lil Xeph Nov 3 2019, 07:39 PM

5 8.32 Ritual (TiŽsto, Jonas Blue & Rita Ora)

Hot right now: Frenchie (11)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Jade, blacksquare (6)

Amazingly, Rita's most recent single is already a big Buzzjack fave! Peaking at #24, Ritual became a slow-burning hit over the summer and autumn, and saw Rita team up with two huge names in dance - TiŽsto and Jonas Blue. It received an #11 from Frenchie, and no score lower than a 6!


Posted by: Frenchie Nov 3 2019, 10:06 PM

A bop! Did not expect this to do so well in this rate. It deserved so more in the charts!

Posted by: Nick F1 Nov 3 2019, 10:14 PM

so bad that it missed top 20 in uk, but still it was decent hit. wub.gif

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Nov 5 2019, 12:48 PM

I enjoy it a fair bit, I'm not sure it's top 5 worthy though.

Posted by: LMLou Nov 5 2019, 01:59 PM

I donít mind Ritual but I never gravitated towards it in the same way some many on here seemed to. The chorus is good but the drop not so much

Posted by: Jonjo Nov 5 2019, 02:43 PM

Ritual is incredible. Still sounds SO good after all these plays. I am stunned it managed to go top 5, but SO pleased wub.gif

Posted by: pippa Nov 5 2019, 02:46 PM

Ritual is so good and it is welcoming that it has made the final 5 here.

Posted by: Feel_The_Fever Nov 6 2019, 03:13 AM

Ritual is good, def a grower of a song.

Posted by: Jay ☆ Nov 6 2019, 08:30 AM

Ritual deserved to be way bigger in the UK charts than #24 cry.gif Glad it’s very appreciated here!

Next result coming soon!

Posted by: pippa Nov 6 2019, 02:40 PM

Its Number 24 peak is disappointing but it had a good chart run that helped build sales.
It did have a midweek Top 20 place at 1 point but slipped back cry.gif

Posted by: Jay ☆ Nov 10 2019, 11:44 AM

4 8.51 Lonely Together (Avicii feat. Rita Ora)

Hot right now: Cqmerqn, danG (11), Nick F1, SamJudd, Doug, Liam, JosephStyles, Calum, HarryEzra, Jay, Cody Burnett, Cremey, Rhoda Camel (10)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Tawdry Hepburn (3), LMLou, Jack (5)

Rita's collaboration with the late Swedish DJ Avicii was a hugely successful single in the UK, Ireland, Hungary & Sweden, achieving top 5 peaks in these countries. It served as the second single from Avicii's EP Avīci (01), and was eventually included on Rita's second studio album Phoenix. Lonely Together was the final single released by Avicii before his tragic death in April 2018. sad.gif Rita has since paid tribute to Avicii when she performs this song at festivals and on tour.


Posted by: JosephStyles Nov 10 2019, 12:07 PM

Absolutely adore Lonely Together, such a special song wub.gif

Posted by: Jonjo Nov 10 2019, 06:19 PM

Overrated.

Posted by: Jay ☆ Nov 10 2019, 09:35 PM

Heís being facetious x

Posted by: danG Nov 10 2019, 09:49 PM

top 5 for Lonely Together is a great result, wasn't sure if it'd make it.
easily my fave Rita track and one of my faves of Avicii's also.

Posted by: pippa Nov 11 2019, 02:38 PM

Great to see this so high, i know many people do not favour the song but it placed fairly on the countdown.

Posted by: Feel_The_Fever Nov 12 2019, 01:06 AM

Really enjoy lonely together but think I prefer ritual now.

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Nov 12 2019, 11:32 AM

'Lonely Together' is seriously dull as f***. Also that vocal editing.

Posted by: pippa Nov 12 2019, 05:24 PM

I have read many posts with people referring to the song as dull but i don't feel it is dull at all.

It's overrated, and I don't like her vocal treatment on it.

Posted by: Nick F1 Nov 12 2019, 07:31 PM

LT is flawless and rightfully in top 5 cheer.gif

Posted by: George.keh Nov 12 2019, 08:45 PM

I find Lonely Together rather dull too oops

Posted by: pippa Nov 12 2019, 09:30 PM

Lonely Together always had a mixed response on the forum.

3 8.87 Let You Love Me

Hot right now: Doug, Joe, Calum, Rhoda Camel, Jack (11), NickF1, SamJudd, Frenchie, ...ready for it, JosephStyles, Jay, Cody Burnett, Feel_The_Fever, Jordan Lee (10)
R.I.P. to the bullshit: Bre (1), Jade (5)

Into the top 3 we go and in 3rd place is the mid-tempo SMASH 'Let You Love Me'. I like this song, a lot (I gave it 8.5), but I can't help but shake the feel it's a tad overrated *eyes* Lovely song though. Probs about 7th for me in this rate, so it's a tad too high for my liking, but I see the appeal! It went on to be a huge smash for her, which at the time was so much more appreciated and welcome due to the major under performance of 'Girls' just before it. The production is lush on this!


Posted by: JosephStyles Nov 17 2019, 12:11 AM

Gah another awful Jonjo opinion to quote back when I demote him x

Let You Love Me is absolutely glorious, that final chorus!!! wub.gif wub.gif

Posted by: Frenchie Nov 17 2019, 07:38 AM

Such a good song! I liked how this continued the vibe of the era after 'Your Song' and 'Anywhere'. Really hoping she can make some more hits like this for her next album.

Posted by: Jonjo Nov 17 2019, 07:39 AM

SHOULDA GIVEN ME I WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN TO WRITE UP ABOUT THEN BITCH.

Oh and the top 2 is ofc Anywhere vs I Will Never Let You Down... which song is gonna win? Both incredible funky.gif

Posted by: Jack Nov 17 2019, 05:56 PM

I actually prefer Let You Love Me to Anywhere!

Posted by: dobbo Nov 17 2019, 07:45 PM

Good track but not top 3 worthy. Speaking of which neither is Anywhere, hoping for a IWNLYD victory.

Posted by: Feel_The_Fever Nov 17 2019, 09:27 PM

I really like let you love me, in fact the top 5 has been great.

Posted by: Nick F1 Nov 18 2019, 12:35 AM

Definitely deserving top 3
Maybe top 2
Anywhere ftwww

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Nov 18 2019, 11:18 AM

I feel like we have the correct top 3!

I do love 'Let You Love Me' a lot, and being there to see her record it for Xmas TOTP last year was a special moment.
