Un refrain très insuffisant, mais s'il n'y avait que ça...

Un peu plat, mais sympathique.

Ein Einser ist wirklich untertrieben.. oder übertrieben? Egal. Auf jeden Fall nicht gerechtfertigt!! Der Song ist gut und nett, jedoch nix spezielles das mit den im Moment grossen Songs mithalten könnte. Eine der Damen hat eine ähnliche Stimme wie Nicole Scherzinger ist mir aufgefallen. Gute 4* für diesen Song, mehr nicht.

Edit: Der Song gefällt mir nun viel besser als am Anfang. Die Stimmen sind sehr gut, sie sehen alle geil aus und können hammer tanzen und die Produktion ist auch solide. Deshalb gebe ich ihnen gerne 5* und hoffe, dass endlich einmal eine Girlgroup den Durchbruch schafft und nicht nur Boybands !!
Mir ist aufgefallen, dass da Frau Bennet dabei ist, die junge Dame von LMFAO's Party Rocking! :D

I'm not exaggerating here, this is my absolute favourite song of 2014 so far. This is brilliant pop music. The great lyrics, the verbose but catchy chorus, the big build-up in the bridge... amazing stuff and shows what GRL are capable of.
*****
A good pop song.
*****
"ok you're pretty , your face is a work of art & your smile could light up New York City after dark. ok you're cover boy pretty stamped with a beauty mark but it's such a pity , a boy so pretty with an ugly heart"

Sehr guter Pop-Track! Macht Spass, die lyrics sind toll und die Girls werden mir immer symphatischer!
Ich find ihren Style geil und das Video ist auch sehr gut!
Mal schauen, wie lange sie zusammen bleiben, Girlbands halten sich meistens nicht so lange wie Boybands, aus welchem Grund auch immer (lool, ich wüsste da einige :P)

5*
***
Comparisons to the Pussycat Dolls are quite apt, but unkike some of their tracks this doesn't grab me. The subtle folk elements are a but cringey and I could definitely do without them. The song is okay I guess, but I don't find it anywhere near as enjoyable as the other reviewers on here do.

Love this. I don't think I could've really said what Hijinx said any better. I'm really pleased to see it become a hit here.

I expected a bit more to be honest.

Oh, so G*R*L is a group and not a single singer. I was just under the impression that it was a single singer after the Pitbull collaboration.

Anyway, this is perfectly fine and somewhat enjoyable.

There isn't much for me to pick at, other than the "your face could light up New York City after dark" line. New York is known as the "city that never sleeps", and with all those neon lights and flashing advertisements, it never really goes dark.

3.5*.

EDIT: Okay, after hearing this repeatedly on radio with their visit to Australia, I've come to realise that this isn't very good.

I was a bit too positive in my initial hearing of the song, and there isn't much to enjoy about it.

But, I still don't hate it like some of the other people here do.

3.5* -> 2.5*.

There's something off putting I just can't identify here. I can identify hating the vocals of one of them though. The chorus has it's moments and could help the song grow on me.

Edit: It already is growing on me. I find it to be rather interesting and it has a bizarre kind of charm to it.

The chorus is still rather tuneless for me, but overall this isn't too bad.

G.R.L. sind die Pussycat Dolls 2.0. Ursprünglich wurden die Mädels ja als Nachfolger von Nicole Scherzinger & Co. gecastet, nun entschied man sich (Gott sei Dank) doch für einen anderen Namen, sonst hätte man das gleiche Fiasko wie bei den Sugababes gehabt. Und das schliesst ein Comeback der originallen PCDs auch wieder nicht ganz aus.

Der Song selbst ist wirklich überraschend. Bei einer solchen Kombo erwartet man ein Pop-Song der fiesen Ohrwurm-Sorte, vielleicht noch mit aktuellem Dance-Sound. Doch was einem aufgetischt wird ist tatsächlich ein FOLK-Pop-Song! Ja genau, FOLK! Wer hätte das erwartet? Nun gut, gerade Marketing-technisch ein guter Schachzug, ist solcher Sound doch zurzeit sehr in. Jedenfalls eine gute Single, um die Band der Welt zu präsentieren und es sollte einem Hit nichts im Weg stehen. Schade sind vier der fünf Sängerinnen unsympatisch. -5*
***
Better than their effort on WWL, pretty good.
***
Folk Dance Pop, wenig überzeugende Darbietung dieser Girlgroup, 2.75...
****
Despite the iPhone ringtone at the beginning, this is a pretty solid pop track. I'll be interested to see if they can follow this up, or if they'll fade into obscurity...
*
This is my 'why are ppl buying this' song atm, it's totally cringe worthy in every aspect and that video is horrid. Feel like i'm back in the mid 2000's again, GO AWAY!

TRASH!
***
Ik ben er niet zo weg van. Zowel de videoclip als het nummer zelf vind ik matig.
**
Not quite getting this one. The monotonous chorus is very difficult to listen to, I wish they did more vocally. The lyrics are the most interesting thing, but they're combined with the most boring melody, I'd rather listen to nothing.
*****
Aufgestellter Pop mit einer schönen Message. 4-5*

Too bad the vocals are bad because the song is quite catchy. 3.5

For a Robin Antin band, it's not the typical first single I would have expected from them. Okay, it's disposable pop music, but it has a good message and overall, it is very catchy.

Gewoon een veel te doorsnee plaatje.
***
I might have to give this more time - but it really isn't doing anything for me at the moment. It is what it is - a cheesy pop track - worth 3 stars at least.
***
The tune struggles to get momentum to grab my interest. Too many 'pretty' words in the chorus and bridge makes the lyrics not flow so well.
However, this has grown on me over time. The final chorus does have the right tempo lift. It just needed to be earlier in the song, then they could have worked with something extra for the rest. 3.5*

I think the first time I heard this, all I could notice was a stylistic similarity to "Wild Wild Love", which made me wonder what sort of creative hands would have led to something like that, since G.R.L. are genuinely the only connection between the two tracks, yet have no writing credits to show on it.

And then from that I was glad to see it become a big hit if only to show that perhaps the public would be more perceptive towards Pitbull-like songs that don't actually have Pitbull in them, ha! I at least know in this case that I certainly am, but then it helps that with a bigger stage, G.R.L. get more space to show off, with each member getting a solo, and some impressive vocal runs to show towards the end of the track.

Simple but effective subject. I almost wonder if there's a hint of chronology to it, with the chorus suggesting his face could 'light up New York City after dark', but after noting several times that he's not the best of characters, by the time you get to the bridge, it's demoted to 'could probably light up New York after dark'. Granted, it reverts back just after, but it's hard to care when that last chorus reels it in so well. 3.9
***
Unterscheidet sich nicht von so vielen anderen Girlie-Bands aus Übersee ... gesichtslos ...
******
This is a killer track in every way possible. The vocals are solid, the production is catchy but the best part of this song for me is the lyrics. Its awesome to see a song with a good meaning behind it do well on the charts, although it's a shame the song never hit #1. I'm 100% with Hjinx on the final chorus, it really does wrap a the song very well Hopefully this is just the start of something great for G.R.L. :D
**
Okay I feel I was way too harsh but this is still flawed in too many essential areas. My big issue though is that THE CHORUS IS ONLY ON ONE NOTE. Just a huge turnoff regardless of everything else that is good about the song. The additional vocal layers later on do help, but not enough for me to get over it.

Stront vervelend vind ik nu wel niet maar het is ook niet dat ik er helemaal weg van ben

Kan bara bli tal om ett enda slutresultat här : 1 poäng!

Een beetje raar dat dit nummer nú ineens onder de aandacht van de Nederlanders komt, dik twee maanden na de dood van bandlid Simone Battle. Met het nummer is verder niets mis: leuke lyrics, goede vocalen en een catchy melodietje maken het fijn om naar te luisteren. Ik ben benieuwd of de andere vier dames verder gaan zonder Simone.
****
Ik moet toch toegeven dat dit gewoon heel slim in elkaar zit. Het klinkt gewoon best lekker. De muziek maakt deze plaat wel een beetje.
****
Prima popsong van dit voormalig vijftal.
****
Prima popsong van de meidengroep: "G.R.L.", uitgekomen op single in Vlaanderen in de herfst van 2014!!! Of het effectief gaat scoren, denk ik niet, maar prima om meermaals op de radio te passeren!!! ☺

Am I the only one who hears this is copy of Nelly Furtado - Forza ?

There is something about this which is so addictive! Both sound and lyrics with a good music video also.

25 weeks in the UK top 100.

UK#11 and Ireland#2.

European Hot 100#23.

The biggest selling girlband single of 2014 in the UK.

Tja, das Äußere ist nicht immer ein Bild des Inneren.
Aber der Song kommt recht flott und eingängig daher, anheimelnd.
Lediglich das Video, in dem die vier jungen selbstbewussten Damen, die das Gesicht des "Wolfs im Schafspelz" offenbar mit Tattoos verunstaltet haben, was mich mich irgendwie an eine Säureattacken auf Frauen im arabischen Raum erinnert - offenbart das "Ugly Heart" der jungen Damen, die durchaus kokett zu ihrer Tat zu stehen scheinen, das lässt mich recht ratlos und nach kurzem Nachdenken enttäuscht zurück.
