ROUND 1: FREE CHOICE
> Any song by your artist. <

So this is back and Ariana infamously flopped last time after 'the light is coming' was decided by random.org rotf.gif

The current team are ready to come back fighting!

Round 1 is free choice. We've been discussing behind the scenes and are contemplating 'Side To Side' because it has underperformed in both the singles rate and Dangerous Woman survivor, but still has its big fans to get it though. What do you guys think? Okay or too early?

Side To Side doing so poorly in the DW surprised me, but I guess it wouldn’t be in my top 7/8 of the album anyway when I think about it laugh.gif I think bearing in mind the quantity of forums in round one I’d go for something like Boyfriend or Dangerous Woman, Side to Side is a shout though x

See we could easily go for something like Into You which would be a surefire to do well. Let's send The Way *.*

I think 'Side to Side' would work at this stage, it may have some vocal haters but it's still well-liked by most. Best to use now than later.

I stan Into You wub.gif But maybe that's better to save for a later round?

Breathin' perhaps?

Breathin' would be another good shout given it's not a huge single but it's very well received! Excited to see how Ariana does this time round <3

'Breathin' finished top 5 in our singles rate ohmy.gif so maybe it could be more of a big hitter than people would expect.

Definitely not touching 'no tears left to cry', 'Into You' and 'One Last Time' for a while kink.gif

I’d probably go for something from My Everything like Problem, Love Me Harder or Break Free.

Side to Side has a fanbase though and should easily survive round 1

If we're talking My Everything, Break Free is the safest bet since it's better remembered imo.

I do think Breathin' is in that zone of not being one of her best singles but still being highly regarded.

Looking at that list, maybe Dangerous Woman? If there is a #1s theme in the future Problem could be a contender for that?

Hmm.. this is so tricky!

But I think 'Side To Side' could be a smart choice for this stage, but 'breathin'' too... thinking.gif The latter may have finished top 5 in an Ari singles rate, but this will be branching out further in the forum so you've gotta add in the casuals/people who don't vote in rates etc.. but it's very highly regarded, isn't it?

Either one would be a good move.

Oh yes not all weight will be put on those results but they're just interesting as one reference point for sure!

I think 'breathin'' would still be well-received by non-fans too. I remember members loving it in the chart threads and wanting it to receive a proper UK push.

Yeh I say we leave breathin' for a tad later and either go for Side To Side, Dangerous Woman or Break Free.

'Break Free'? ohmy.gif

Surely that would be a safe bet further on? ohmy.gif
