Kicking this off now!



26. My Love - 5.75
9.0 ~ sergejdordij98
3.0 ~ Wall





First up we have this very under the radar collab with Wale, which kind of did nothing. It kind of came about around the time when Dua was taking off with a number of much bigger songs, so it's obvious why it was pushed to the side a bit. That an the fact it's not a very good song. I don't think she even tweeted that the video was released.

25. Swan Song - 5.81
9.5 ~ sergejdordij98
0.0 ~ Wall





Next we have Alita soundtrack single 'Swan Song', which got a really big push but became the first post-New Rules under-performance for Dua, and what do Buzzjack dislike more than a meh song? a flop!

"My Love" is my least favourite collaboration she has done so far, so I guess it's fine to see this at the bottom? However, I'm surprised to see "Swan Song" in the bottom two. I mean, I'm aware that it's polarized, but I wasn't expecting to be like that.

I guess it's time to continue with the reveals.

24. Thinking 'Bout You - 6.44
9.0 ~ JosephAvery
4.0 ~ Tawdry Hepburn, Klaus, Mike Sugafan






The first song to be out from the album is "Thinking 'Bout You". A demo version of the track was uploaded on Soundcloud back in 2015 and it was one of the instant grats prior the release of the album.

Swan Song is certainly not her best, but the verses are really strong! Certainly should not be second to last and under the dullness of Thinking Bout You!

23. Want To - 6.50
9.0 ~ Jade
2.0 ~ SamJudd






Next up is "Want To". This song was meant to be included in the original release of the album, but it was pulled in favour of new tracks. However, it made into the complete edition. Personally, I'm surprised this is low because it's a good track and it's better than some of the ones in the original release for me.

It's time for another two reveals.

22. No Goodbyes - 6.53
9.0 ~ botchia
4.0 ~ blacksquare






"No Goodbyes" was performed for the very first time at Glastonbury in 2017, during the month of the album release. I still enjoy the buildup through the verses to the chorus and the distortion of the vocals in the post-chorus.

21. Garden - 6.58
10.0 ~ Jade, Mike Sugafan
3.0 ~ Tawdry Hepburn






I like the use of the Biblical references as a metaphor in its narrative in "Garden", as well as Dua's intensity in the vocals.

Time to kick off the Top 20, I guess?

20. New Love - 6.67
10.0 ~ blacksquare, Klaus
3.0 ~ Wall






"New Love" is the song that began this journey, which was extended for almost two years until her self-titled debut album was released. Those times of insufferable pushbacks. drama.gif Either way, there are two versions of the song: The WW release, which length is 4:32 min., and the German speaking countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) release, which length is 3:59 min. and it's the same as the music video. This version was released under Vertigo/Capitol.

19. Dreams - 6.72
9.0 ~ 365, Jack
4.0 ~ Wall, blacksquare






"Dreams" is good and I like the tropical vibe on it, but it's not one of my favourites from her. I don't know why, but it seems unfinished as well.

No great loses here, I do quite like Dreams though!

"Homesick" was pushed as a single in Belgium and the Netherlands, reaching the Top 20 in both countries. Sad that "Running" is gone because I really do like that song.

16. Genesis - 7.11
9.0 ~ Juan Carlos
4.0 ~ Tawdry Hepburn






'Genesis', is a pretty solid opener to her debut, I know it's one of the more popular songs among fans, so I'm a little surprised to see it not make the top 15, but most of what's remaining is pretty strong so it's not massive loss.

14. Lost In Your Light - 7.14 (tie)
10.0 ~ sergejdordij98
5.0 ~ Tawdry Hepburn, Cqmerqn





Remember this?! The song that launched the album. A big misstep, single wise, but amazingly, Dua recovered well. Crazy to think they could have lead the album with New Rules, isn't it? It's a cute song though, and would have worked well as a nice album track.

I quite like 'Room For 2', it's musically a lot more interesting than what a lot of the album has to offer.
