LIVE PERFORMANCE:

OPINION:

There’s an infectious vibe that catches you from the beginning of “Replay”. The song builds to an electro-dance chorus with Latin tones. It’s stop-start rhythm fools even to the finish.

PREDICTION:

For whatever its commercial/EDM appeal, I don’t think (if this song does qualify) it will make an impact in the grand scheme of things. Probably best left out.

LYRICS:

“You’ve got a problem, 2 a.m. I’m in your head
Let’s just be honest tonight, yeah
Only I can solve it, you’re twisting, turning in your bed
Them sheets need my body tonight

That’s when you call me, that’s when you call me
Say you’re feeling lonely
Early in the morning, early in the morning
Time is moving slowly

We keep it undercover
I know you miss the taste
My heart beats like an 808

You need my love on replay
Replay, replay, replay, yeah
You need my love on replay
Replay, replay, replay, yeah

You’re stuck on me darlin’ like a love song on repeat
Yeah, you’ve got a problem, alright, yeah yeah
And I know I’m the one to blame
Because I make you scream my name
And baby, I’m all in tonight, mmm

That’s when you call me, that’s when you call me
Say you’re feeling lonely
Early in the morning, early in the morning
Time is moving slowly

We keep it undercover
I know you miss the taste
My heart beats like an 808

You need my love on replay
Replay, replay, replay, yeah
You need my love on replay
Replay, replay, replay, yeah

And I know I’m the one to blame
‘Cause I make you scream my name
Baby, I’m all in tonight, mmm yeah
That’s when you call me, that’s when you call me

That’s when you call me, that’s when you call me
Say you’re feeling lonely
Early in the morning, early in the morning
Time is moving slowly
We keep it undercover
I know you miss the taste
My heart beats like an 808

You need my love on replay (You need my love)
Replay, replay, replay, yeah (Yeah, yeah)
You need my love on replay”
