I was meant to continue this way back when in 2016, but kinda forgot laugh.gif Oops. But it's back now and for this time, we will be finding out Buzzjack's opinion and view on the Cheat Codes collaboration, 'Only You'.



So how do you feel about this song? Has your opinion changed on it over time? For better or are you sick of it?

Feel free to partake in previous ones.

I absolutely adore this. It feels very underrated and under appreciated and it was really nice to finally hear them on a dance collaboration. The Apple Music Festival performance of this at the end of last year was heartbreaking, especially when Jade broke down </3

This was a misfire oops sad.gif the production completely ruins it for me (especially the drop) and I find Leigh's vocals jarring on this occasion. However, it definitely clicks more during stripped back live performances. So I wish the studio version felt like more of a simple heartfelt ballad, opposed to the noisy Cheat Codes involvement.

This is deffo my fave track of theirs. I think the production works really well and their vocals are amazing as usual. They really suit dance music so would be very down for more like this.

At first I didn't get it, I would say I was pretty underwhelmed.

Now however, I think it's gorgeous, catchy and different for them, which I appreciate.

Utterly horrendous, it's pretty much everything I hate about music and a stain on their discography.

Cheat Codes were definitely one of the worst things to happen to music this half of the decade.

Now Jordan's said it, I'll also add to my statement that; Yes... the drop is awful and let's the song down.

An underappreciated mega-bop. I get that it's basic as all hell, but I adore Perrie's intro and Leigh sounds amazing on it. I don't even find the drop that jarring either. Honestly, it's probably the single I return to most from the LM5 era.

I canít remember where I first heard this but I didnít clock it was little mix instantly. I played this song to death. Such a great best and very unlike what I expected from them. The summer song of 2018 for me and still a great one to listen to now. I always think itís just too short!

My issue with this release was that they just came off the back of Glory Days and a stadium tour of the UK and their comeback should have been kept for Woman Like Me/X Factor promo but this sort of killed their 'comeback' hype a little and it underperforming plus the fact the girls weren't in the video just made it feel like a really awkward and underwhelming release.

The song itself is pretty good, though.

For once I agree with you lol. Only You, whilst it wasn't a horrible song and didn't tank badly, did affect their momentum. They definitely could've let us breathe from the summer tour to October.

I don't actually dislike the song, I quite enjoyed it and it was nice to hear them as a "DJ Artist feature" rather than it being a Bounce Back.. I'm completely obsessed with the lethargic stage choreo because that breakdown is so choppy you literally can't choreo to it properly lmao.

I hate Jesy's bananees avacarhdees live singing in her verse though, also the man in the song wasn't needed.

It's cute, but should have been left as an unreleased album track. IMO they should have released WLM in Only You's place as it has massive single potential, but isn't an album seller. They should have gotten a big #1 smash with WLM over the Summer in Only You's place and released Monster in Me or The Cure in Q4 before the album.

I feel like Little Mix love this track more than the fans? Like, if I heard it live I would probably use it as a toilet break ohmy.gif
