“Worst Nites” – Foster The People

We have high expectations for Foster The People after their surprise comeback hit “Next To Me.” This song has some cool vibes but overall we’re unimpressed. We want the full effect. We want to be wowed. Wishing they would release another pop radio smash. #issaflop Advertisements Listener score:

“Care Less More” – Olivia O’brien

It’s unfortunate that this song came out the same week as “thank you, next” and sounds just like it! We’re sure that was just coincidence. We actually might have been ok with it otherwise.. sorry bb! #issaflop Listener score:

“Without Me” – Halsey

We like that Halsey sound when shopping at The Rack and Zara, but we’re not trying to take it everywhere we go. All these songs are too broken hearted. Halsey is too broken-hearted for us this beautiful day. Skip. #issaflop Listener score:

“Honey” – Robyn

Does Robyn ever disappoint? Apparently, yes! Robyn’s songs are usually beating up all the other songs on the playground, but this one is a little boring. “Honey” is okay, but we have high expectations from our queen. #issaflop Listener score:
