Good song.

Awesome track!

Guy has another winner here, this has hit written all over it. Lupe's inclusion is good and his parts fit well in the song. Guy's chorus is good as well and if he ever needed a song to crack it internationally, this would be the song to do it.

Agreed with Mykl, his best since Art Of Love.

Guy's best track since Art Of Love. Bit hit potential here, and it could indeed crack him into the US market.
***
Not bad at all, in fact it could be one of his best to date.
******
Guys best in a long time, I love this. fantastic.

This is really great, sounds like a smash. Lupe is more than just a feature too, it's almost like a rap-sung duet of sorts.
Last edited: 10.08.2012 12:56
****
Probably the best song from Guy in many years. But I do agree, it definitely should be 'Lupe Fiasco Feat. Guy Sebastian'
*****
Great track, his best for a while!
*****
Sehr guter Song, überzeugt mich.
****
Good song.
******
Richtig starke Nummer, ausgezeichnet!
****
Lupe manages to avoid going over the top with his socio-political lyrics (see "Words I Never Said") and sticks with something more relatable. Next to this, Guy delivers a hook that frequently gets stuck in my head. A success!
****
Ganz nette Nummer, brilliert hauptsächlich dank dem starken Rafrain. Hatte bei den guten Kritiken aber fast mehr erwartet. In Australien bereits #1, man erwartet auch dass der dort mehrere Wochen bleiben soll...

4+*
****
Artige R&B Pop Rap-Nummer – Track soll sowohl auf dem kommenden Album Armageddon von Guy Sebastian als auch dem folgenden Album Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 von Lupe Fiasco drauf sein – 4*…
*****
Eine sehr schöne R&B-Nummer, die Kombination hier passt super, der Rap ist auch gut. Sehr schön! 5*
****
Ist okay. Guy Sebastian jammert am Ende schon übertrieben durch die Gegend und Lupe Fiasco liefert halt Dienst nach Vorschrift, aber lässt sich anhören.
*****
I actually like this. Great #1!
******
This song is perfect! As so many people have stated, this should be seen as a duet between Guy and Lupe, more than a Lupe feature. Luckily, the U.S. release is under Lupe Fiasco & Guy Sebastian, and that's the way I'll see it. Either way, a great number one, and Guy's best work.
******
Good effort, I'm impressed by how Guy Sebastian has managed to stay relevant despite winning Idol nearly ten years ago!! One of the better #1's of the year I think.

Keine Ahnung was daran so toll ist ... klingt als ob Bruno Mars & Usher ein gemeinsames Baby erwarten ...
*****
The song wouldn't exist if not for Guy. Guy chose how much Lupe there should be on it, even chose which set of verses would be used (out of the 2 sets Lupe offered) . And Lupe's part was produced by Guy in Guy's own studio. The US version on Lupe's own label gives them equal billing. Now, if Lupe's happy with that, so should we be. Anyway, great song. Unfortunately, it will drop like a stone on the US Hot 100 next week, because it's not really getting any radio play.
***
Hoeft van mij in Nederland geen hit te worden.
*****
Guy's best release so far. The song is a very clever 50-50 mix of Guy and Lupe in order for it to be marketed with either as the lead artist.
***
My first review was that I was "impressed on first listen," but I'm already starting to get tired of it.
*****
^^ I thought exactly the same antonnalan. I was interested to see how this would hold up, and fortunately for me this is still an enjoyable listen.
Both artists contribute equally to the final product. I think I can call this as Guy's best to date.
The only slight downfall, what is that gargle at the start?
*****
Stark!
*****
Surprisingly great.
*****
a good song from guy and lupe
****
▒ Niet overdrijven lieve mensen !!! Deze "Battle Scars" van het duo "Guy Sebastian & Lupe Fiasco" uit de Europese nazomer, is gewoon ø en vier sterren waard !!! Prima dus ☺!!!
**
Not bad.
*****
Ein immer wieder zündendes Rezept, wenn geschmeidige Raps, ein "cremig" gesungener Refrain auf gut ausgefeilten Sound treffen.

Der Sound wirkt hier nicht so klinisch rein, das oldiemäßig klingende Klavier, gemixt mit Beats, ergeben ein feines Gesamtbild.

Die Melodie ist nicht sehr innovativ aber dennoch einprägend.

Gelungene Sache, 5*.
*****
Es ist also doch möglich, Hip-Hop orientierte Musik zu produzieren, die ein gewisses Mass an Qualität aufweist - dieser Song hier ist ein gutes Beispiel dafür, wie abwechslungsreicher Hip-Hop tönen kann - verdiente 4!

Edit: Der ist sogar so gut, dass man hier locker eine 5 geben kann!

Ein besserer Bruno Mars - dafür sind wir doch schon mal dankbar.
***
Pretty good, but overrated so I'm a bit sick of it. 3.5*
******
The best song that Guy has ever released. I wasn't as in to it at first but it grew on me more and more with each listen. Most deserving number 1 song of 2012 by far and I'm glad to see that this song is selling lots and is really popular.

Shut the fuck up Guy. And Lupe needs to go away as well.
***
Weichgespültes Pop-Rap-Duett nach 08/15-Schema!
*
1 star
******
The best song by an Australian either on their own or collaborating in 2012. Simply flawless. Good to see it has also been successful in the USA.
***
Sounds like a decent quality hit but not something I really give a crap about.
*
Very unoriginal and condescending, one of the worst Australian #1s in a while.
**
Very overrated imo. It has an alright melody and some okay lyrics but other than that, it's nothing special or anything of interest to me personally.
****
Gute 4*
****
Naja, ich finds eher austauschbar, aber es ist sicher hörbar !! Im Radio hats damals sicher gut gepasst. Ich selber würde den Song aber nie hören. Knappe 4*
****
It will always be up their as one of his most recognizable hits but I for one was really glad it disappeared when it did.

Peaked at #10 on my personal chart.

Came in at #32 on my TOP 200 OF 2012.
