Well that didn’t take long! Earlier this morning (January 7), Charli XCX announced that she was releasing a new version of Sucker highlight “Doing It” as her next single in the UK. The twist? She called upon fellow Brit Rita Ora
to lend her vocals to the track. Well, a preview of the new (but
perhaps not improved) edit has already surfaced online and it sounds
substantially worse than the original. It might, however, make more
sense in its entirety.
“Doing It” 2.0 begins identically to the Ariel Rechtshaid-produced
album version, but then diverts into a fairly generic girl power
anthem. “Friends like a team in a circle, we’re together we’re so
alive,” sings Rita. “Know I got your back for life.” Maybe it just takes
a few listens to forget that the original is a near-perfect pop song
and enjoy this engineered-for-UK-chart-success revision for what it is.
Listen to a snippet after the jump.
