Not that i was a fan in the first place but admit his cant say no song was quite catchy, but he really annoys me, i dont know why,

the song is called are you crazy (i think), it's just so rubbish, im fed up of hearing this generic crap now, this particular song is on repeat on kiss,

I like it but it's no 'Turn Around' or 'Animal', I expected better.

I find the lyrics a bit forced and awkward, but it's not a disaster by any account.

I actually liked the singles off his first album but this new single is a total MESS.

he is dreadful in my opinion.
ridiculous facial expressions, boring voice, and uninspired songs.

sounds quite harsh i know

but he wont be remembered in 5 years down the line.

'r u crazy' i watched the video 3 times to make up my mind. its just horrendously bad. so top 5 then

I'm not a fan of him but Can't Say No is one of my guilty pleasures Every other songof his I've heard has been rubbish. Haven't heard the new one yet.

Maybe I'd like the song better if it were sung by another artist, I don't know. There's something about him that comes across as quite smarmy and self-deserving.

I also think that some of the forced input and facial expressions are trying to take a very basic song(s) into a more deeper level.

I think the lyrics are awful, particularly the "are you joking/i aint smoing", or something like that. What the hell

It was produced by Labrinth He's usually so much better than this.

To be fair this bloke/child had 'short term success' written all over him from the get go.

Haven't heard this yet but it's hardly a shock that Conor Maynard released a crap single!

I was surprised it was (apparently) also co-written by Labrinth too. Really cringy lyrics, I like some of Labyrinth's work though.

I really like the song personally, but I don't like it as much as Can't Say No and Vegas Girl.

it sounds EXACTLY LIKE a Justin Timberlake song. From about 10 years ago.

Its a grower, I didn't like it at first, but it is really catchy after a few listens, I find myself singing the song just randomly.

The song just sounds really naively written and produced, and the lyrics sound so forced and like they ran out of ideas. On top of that, Connor just has ZERO star quality. You've either got it or you don't.

I think you are right, i mean I really dislike Justin Bieber but I admit I can see the appeal as to why he has fans etc, but with Conor Maynard it all seems rather forced and like he's a bit manufactured, i dont know really

Can we bump this thread every time Conor releases a new single?


haha
