I have to agree on this.

It's probably the only thing that irks me from the whole clip. It sounds forced and out of place. I don't like it. She won't be able to sing this part live. It would be a "Let's Get Loud" high note tea.


but im sure shell blow us away with the performance either way.

That's Skrillex & Diplo's sound style, their signature for the track :cool:



I'm a huge Diplo fan and that third uuuUUuuuuss is not their sound lol, if anything it will cause people to cringe and side eye

The third one sounds the best to me, lol. You're probably referring to the off-key part, and that's not in the song, that's Jennifer screeching in the studio, :lol

weird how this video has just a little over 2M views and the one of her live tweeting Sob has +5M, I think Arod talking about Jen on the view and their first photo-op that same damn overshadowed that post not many publication reposted it they were too focused on the new boyfriend. :coffee

:lol: Its clearly not the song and it's Jen screeching like a mad woman - and it sound awful. Again, I don't know how people can judge a song from a short little clip.

No, we are talking about the song.

I'm not tone deaf. I think after 15 years of stanning for her musical numbers I can differentiate her normal voice (or screeching) to her auto-tuned studio vocals. We are talking about the third "could it be us". The high note is too high. It sounds out of place.

Let's hope it hasn't gone through the mastered process yet.

Third "us" is not off-key, its just Jennifer singing along with the song while recording the instagram video. It wont be in the final version.

The song (at least the chorus) already sounds like hit, if you don't like it thats fine, go and stan for someone else.

The chorus is too repetitive IMO. Why not 3 different lines instead of 3x 'could it be us'? :oops:

I'm not a fan of Repetitive-Lo. Songs like Girls, I Luh Ya Papi, First Love, Booty and Love Make the World Go Round could be so much better if the lyrics were better (and less repetitive).

(I know, I'm also being repetitive now :giggles #repetitiveJ )

That is true, but it shouldn't be too repetitive and too simple. People will get tired of a pop song quickly if the song is too repetitive and too simple. A pop songs needs clever lyrics, ad libs, a climax, etc.
