    I know I'm a little bit late, but anyone here who liked the music video more than the song itself? I mean the song is okay but the music video is another thing! We only have Jackson and that 'devil' lady on the frame pouncing his ragged body with that choreography and it fucking work! The simplicity of using the black and white shades blended well with the lyric of the song and the dark-gloomy theme. I thought that on how Jackson sang the song with the low tone was the best approach. It seems like a story-telling with a tone rather than 'actual singing'. The song sounded monotonic for me, but hey, I'm not complaining. It suited Jackson's vocal range (I presume) and the whole dark-gloomy aura and the amazing choreography. His acting was also bad-ass. The bass was so hardcore I loved it. Not gonna lie, but that 'bullet to the heart' line stuck on my head through the entire song up to this writing. Rating would be like this: Choreo: 9; Song: 6.5.

    I haven't dissected it, but on the first listen - liked it.
    (the bullet isn't 'stuck' but it isn't a miss either - it's not the best song but it is a good/standard song).

    This isn't a vocally impressive song and I'm not expecting anyway, but the overall production is so well-made that it deserves a spot on my playlist.

    The song is okay. It didn't make it to my playlist though.

    I actually agree with you on all the points in your original post. "Okay" does not mean great, just basic okay song lol. Too ordinary tbh.

    I like all his MVs and songs so no surprise here that I like both in this case.

    hurmm... ehem.. The song hurmm it's not astonishing yet it's not deficient umm.. A good attempt. I will listen to it again definitely if I feel tired with my playlist. But I won't click save on it.

    Agree. As I said, it's not vocally impressive but the totality of the song with the MV and choreo saved the song for me. It made me like the songs in a better light.
