I love this song so much and was so excited to hear that it was being released in the UK on March 17th. However, just looking on iTunes and it says the release date is 3rd June 2013!?! I really hope not but sadly I think we'll have to wait another three months!

You need to listen to it soon! Although, it's probably been hyped a bit too much now so don't get to excited or you might be disappointed! But it is a great song!

Thanks, thought it would be! So gutted! But, if they want to promote it then thats good, I'd love it to get into the Top 10, even #1 if it can! There's been absolutely no promotion recently so probably better to release it later and its a very summery song!

I love this song too, our radio station playlisted it a few weeks ago, can't believe it'll still be there in June!

Think they need to bring the release forward. It's been huge all over the world, including America.

Guaranteed number 1 I think, and hope

Oh no. It's better this way. It'll be a US top 3 on itunes by June, and it will SMASH here

It's already been released in Ireland. I don't know why they're so slow to release it in the UK?

The UK is the last place the song has yet to smash so I think they want to give extra promo time here to insure it's huge. I can see Radio 1 eating this up.

Always hear this song on nights out and it always gets a great reaction from the crowd

Capital FM will play it more than Radio 1 for sure. Capital FM absolutely love electropop songs with people screaming over the top of them, I'm surprised they haven't started playing it already tbh.

I listened to it ages ago for the first time and it left absolutely no impression, good or bad. Then, when I saw that it started smashing on US pop radio, I checked it out again and I was still indifferent. This week, when I checked Billboard and I saw this song had entered the top 10, I checked it out YET again to make sure I'm not missing out and I still didn't get into it. I just don't get what the fuss is all about tbh

It has been available to stream in various places for ages. How are they expecting to sell any?

I like Icona Pop and have enjoyed their previous work, but I've got a nasty feeling they're going to become typecast and ubiquitous and I will go off them.

There's a lot of songs that have hovered around a long time before becoming hits.

I listened to it ages ago for the first time and it left absolutely no impression, good or bad. Then, when I saw that it started smashing on US pop radio, I checked it out again and I was still indifferent. This week, when I checked Billboard and I saw this song had entered the top 10, I checked it out YET again to make sure I'm not missing out and I still didn't get into it.

A lot of it is down to the fact that female dance-pop/electropop has suffered a huge decrease in popularity for the past couple of years, and at this point fans of that genre are desperate for anything that will become a hit. The same reason why Alive by Krewella gets so much attention.

That said, I think the song is better than most of those types of songs. The instrumental is more creative than the usual bright synths that go "ehhhh ehhhh ehhhh ehhhh" at 120 bpm, and the vocals are good too, again a bit different to normal.

The lyrics are kind of funny "You're from the 70s but I'm a 90s bitch."

It is catchy but I'm not going to buy it cos like someone else said, I think I'd get bored of it quickly and they really are just shouting, not singing.

Pfft insanity. I have to switch the radio over when it comes on, I just don't get the appeal.
