I Expected More
I was never really a fan of One Direction to start with, but this song was a letdown. I saw Zayn and Harry Styles on excellent songs like I Don't Wanna Live Forever and Sign of the Times. Now, it is Liam's turn, and he comes out with this.
First off, the lyrics are about him meeting a girl and wanting sex, which perfectly describes the negative stereotype of contemporary pop music. In addition, Liam invites Quavo, who clearly is not the most talented rapper out there (if you want talent, go Kendrick or Eminem). Quavo is the most popular, though, so it makes sense to go for the market rather than quality.
Second, the instrumentals sound incomplete. Honestly, I have no problem with the modern sounds; in fact, the problem is that there isn't enough. If the composer could have added a couple more "instruments," the song would have sounded better.
My final topic is the passion, which was honestly not that bad. It did sound like Liam at least sort of wanted to sing this song, and Quavo actually sounded like he wanted to rap his verse as well. Overall, this song gets a 3/10, which is the lower end of two stars.
