Hope everything is well between her and Vanessa she spoke about all of them except her. :think:

Oh and album not out until next year. I hope it gets released even if the singles flop.

i really hope that they are really in touch and it's not just a PR thing to say "of course we are in touch"

That's how you do an interview. You show you're proud to be in the band that made you famous. You show your respect to your band mates, show you still keep in touch. They support you. And now you have the fans on your side. I don't know what Vanessa was thinking she was going to achieve with this attitude :think:

^That link is broken, I assume it was the full thing... Found it where it all matters.

I was afraid I wasn't going to like it, but the super short clip got me intrigued... and on first full listen, I really like it!

It's a pretty impressive debut. Her voice sounds better on a full song than I ever thought it would.

Catchy chorus which is the main thing maybe a bit repetitive but I don't mind much.

I hope she gets the support she needs.

The song is nice, very 'Missing You' alike if you ask me (vibe, production and style, not the melody). She sounds fab. Despite not being the best singer of the band, I've always seen her as the one with the biggest potential to become a solo artist. She's like Cheryl: not the best voice, not the best dancer, but the whole package works.

Sadly I can't see this being a hit. I don't think it's strong enough to make an impact. It should do well among The Sats fans if they still have some around. Hope I'm proven wrong and it ends up being a hit.

it's a nice song but doesn't feel like it's strong enough to launch a solo career... it would have been better as a 2nd or 3rd single maybe?

It's not as "punchy" as I thought it might have been (based on the preview clip). It has quite a dreamy & relaxed feel to it overall. I really like it though! Can't go wrong with a synth-heavy track. *.*

Have to admit I don't agree with her in regards to the song being far removed from The Saturdays' style of pop. I can totally imagine them having done this track. It makes me think of a 2016 take on Missing You (agree with you, Javi!).

I absolutely love it! :love: Agree it's not as punchy of a song as I would have liked, however I still really enjoyed it. Already listened to it a few times, this does seem like something the group could have done, but it's a great first single from Mollie. She sounds great on it despite not being the strongest singer, but I love her voice! Always had the most faith that Mollie would put out solo material I would really enjoy.

When people write 'after a few listens I liked/loved it' do they not see that is a bad thing? You may give Mollie enough time to play it 3 or 4 times but Joe Bloggs certainly wont. Unless radio hammers it people wont hear it several times.

Mollie really needed something much more interesting than this to launch herself, it is not like she is a household name or has star power.

Your hypocrisy reaches a whole new level. Not so long ago you were making speeches about how Rihanna was far away from "instant hit songs" cause real quality tracks are those that take time and aren't that easy to the ear. But now it suits you to say the total opposite just to throw shit at an act you don't like.

Sammy01, redefining the term "grower" to suit his bashing needs. :laugh:

She's so pretty!
I find her really charming and it's a nice little pop song. I also think she needed something with a little more bang for a first solo single, but hopefully she'll get a chance to prove herself.

Love it!
It's been on repeat for a while now.

Sounds different to what I expected Mollie to release, but like the sound/direction very much!

She's reached the top 20 on UK itunes. Impressive.

Such a shame streaming has to be involved in the charts now.
