Song Review – Tulisa feat. Tyga – Live It Up – does her second single deliver?
Tulisa feat. Tyga – Live It Up
One question to Tulisa – why do you growl and grunt through your songs? It sounds like T is singing through a cough in this song, it’s a little too gruff for more, it’s not a rocky song, it’s pop/RnB so I’m not sure why she feels the need to sing in that way.
Structurally the song is strong, the dance vibes are strewn throughout the track with the siren sound effects. I really do not like the lyrics though, it does sound like every other clubbing track out there…I would have liked a little more depth to it. The chorus is also missing a bit of that killer catchiness.
I’m afraid I haven’t heard of Tyga before this track, he sounds fine, the rap fits in well to the song.
But overall it comes off as a weak Cheryl Cole album track or a diluted version of ‘Start Without You’ by Alexandra Burke. I loved the energy and drive that ‘Young’ had and this second single doesn’t quite reach that level for me.
Let us know what you think of Tulisa’s new song…
