Not bad, quite sweet, but I hope they have some better songs on the album. Especially some Max stuff.
And I liked it..

which makes perfect sense considering she's written with/for them.

   I was really looking forward to this studio version, but I feel like the whole thing is pitched too high........vocal and instruments, almost like "The Chipmunks" lol  .....to me it lacks punch...... LATER:  listened a 3rd time, louder in my headphones...sounded better......maybe I miss hearing just a touch more low end in the instrumental......

Like it, but don't love it. This to me is the equivalent of Carly Rae Jepson's "This Kiss". It's nice, the elements are mostly there, but all in all it's too weak to really be the take off hit she's after.

The production is somewhat disappointing. Not that there's anything wrong with it, it just sounds exactly like any other Katy Perry style pop song out there. Even her voice sounds similar. If anyone has seen her youtube series "Breaking Bonnie", I find it interesting that every artist wants to do something really original, be outside the box or whatever, and when it comes down to it still sounds just like the rest of 'em. But maybe the album will be different?

I am however not sure about Bonnie's star quality as an artist. But best of luck to her! And the song is still awesome :)

She released it today! A music video will a bunch of celebrity cameos. (Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Jewel, KISS, Becky G, Jason Derulo, Nicole Scherzinger, Adam Lambert, Carly Rae Jepsen, Maclemore, Kathy Griffin, Joan Rivers, etc) Sure to get the song/video/Bonnie great visibility.

The studio version rocks. An undeniable summer smash. Production (that infectious classic guitar riff), lyrics, harmonies, vocals all on POINT. Loving this...

knowing that she's written with Katy and Ke$ha, etc, it makes sense that she's gonna go after that similar guitar-driven pop sound. if anything, Teenage Dream (the popular singles) sounded like Bonnie. saying it sounds like a Katy Perry style pop song is sort of ironic - when Bonnie was part of crafting that very sound.

I feel like American Girl is very Bonnie-esque. That nostalgia, her vocal adlibs (that Katy doesn't do in her songs - those high notes and melismas), the lyrics, her general tone of voice.

Update for new album by Katy from her new Instagram. THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE SHE IS IN MAX MARTIN'S STUDIO IN STOCKHOLM! :)
