*** The vocals are delivered rather well but another example of a song relying too much on a noisy beat drop. In this instance it does render the track a bit underwhelming but it definitely doesn't ruin it. 3.25
*** Die Stimme der Sängerin gefällt mir ganz gut und sie klingt ein wenig, als könne sie auch völlig un-elektronische RnB- und Soul-Nummern tragen. Musikalisch ist das Lied aber ziemlich dünn, bei mir jedenfalls bleibt da nichts hängen.
** Referring to the original version, it was decent until the annoying beat drop came in. I just severely dislike this trend of idiotic noises during beat drops in so many pop songs in the past year. It's a shame, cause that alone drags this song from a 3 to a 2. The Ryan Riback remix is even worse cause that shitty beat drop comes in right at the beginning of the track.
***** Judging by the remix: It's really good and catchy. The lyrics embody needing hope and it portrays that hope through it's instrumental. As it gets down to the "Call on Me" bit before the drop, I symbolize it as the answer to the singer's love interest problems being solved.
Of course, I'm not really good at works, all I can just say is that it's a banger. Not as good as Rockabye but still quite uplifting to listen to when you're feeling down.
