I don't understand this being so heavily disliked after giving it one listen, it's not a particularly great song but it's not laughably awful either? unsure.gif

Yeap, I thought the same...I heard Warner ordered massive amounts of CD singles of this. They're already on sale at all retailers.

This must've been planned tbh.

This is just a standard bland pop song laugh.gif It's not horrendously awful or so bad it's good like Friday was, it's just there. Could be a set up but it takes borderline nothing to take off online nowadays drama.gif

The Jason Mraz-reminiscent production, unremarkable vocals & an uneventful video, fronted by a pretty girl... on the surface that is an inoffensive combination, but for me it's the lyrics that kill this stone dead. There's zero substance or quality to them! The chorus is catchy in a mind-numbing kind of the way, but the verses...


Iím up and down I feel so fat
I ainít got no more fizz

Donít even get to keep the cat
But thatís just how it is!

I lost my job, I didnít know
And thatís not good at all!

I met a guy, he knows my name
He also told me his

I was wondering how it managed to attract so many views/dislikes so quickly: she's a popular fashion/beauty German YouTuber, with 4.4m subscribers and millions of views across her previous uploads, so that explains why the song has attracted instantaneous attention. How it made the leap from her fan base to being so widely hated on, who knows? ;o

The fact that she is a successful YouTuber makes me assume that such a bad "Friday-esque" reaction wouldn't have been her intention. Like, why risk damaging her brand with negative widespread attention? I assume she must have had faith in this being a good song. Who knows what the record label's intention was though (Warner)!

I have no shame in finding this an utter jam tbh. It's just such an earworm <3

One German resident gave me the answer on other forum.

QUOTE
She is one of the most famous German Youtubers, and she is known for being greedy, so most people are not okay with her having a song on sale because she will earn even more money from it due to her young fangirls.

Some people also said that the lyrics of the song are stupid, but IMO this counts for for most successful German artists, so we should be used to that.

Also, we had far worse YT "idols" singing far worse songs, which would actually deserve the hate Bibi got

Well after half an hour I can still hum the tune so that must mean it's got something going for it! Certainly nowhere near the worst I've heard this year.

I quite like it. Would suit an advert (What for who know's!!) don't really understand the hate for the song itself think it's more Bibi who seems highly disliked.
