Lily Allen Shares New Track “Sheezus”

The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here; you can stream the title track from Lily Allen‘s upcoming record Sheezus after the jump.

The song is full of name-drops and references to other pop stars including Katy Perry, Rihanna, Lorde, Lady Gaga, and obviously Kanye West, which might explain its non-radio release. While the song is definitely bound to stir up some discussion, I can’t shake the feeling that I’m not a fan. It feels slightly out of place for a rather static, mid-tempo, and sometimes boring song to be the flag-bearer of Allen’s attempt to make a statement about how she’s the best around, and amidst allegations of cultural appropriation for the “Hard Out Here” music video, taking Kanye West’s controversial title from last summer is a risky move, especially when the songs that we’ve heard from Allen’s latest aren’t half as memorable as what we heard on Yeezus.

That being said, there are some good lyrics in there and we already know that the record is going to turn some heads. What do you think of the new song? Let us know by leaving a comment down below.

    This song is terrible.

    I think the song should have a faster beat considering the lyrical content. I don’t hate it but it’s a weird choice in musical direction.

    Love it and Lily!
