  I liked it better after a few listens. The choir doesn't go too well with the lead vocals.

The choir doesn't go too well with the lead vocals.


I thought this too, but only when Simone starts to sing the first verse, the choir throws it off making it sound out of place, however this is the only part of the song I disliked.

Otherwise great song! Hope for more like this one
