Reba's latest single got to #1 on Billboard where Sugarland, Taylor Swift, and Carrie Underwood (likely, Mama's not lookin' great right now) failed.
Well to be fair even though taylor and sugarland peaked at #2, they both had higher audiences that reba did at #1 when they were at #2. Reba just got lucky to be honest, and taylor and sugarland still have the bigger hit, mine hit #3 on the billboard hot 100 and stuck like glue went to #17 on the billboard hot 100, whereas turn on the radio went to #53, id say taylor and sugarland still win.
Its not the twitter reference that i really have a problem with, its just like rainbow said, the song just seems like a ploy to get a younger fanbase, and its dissapointing and reba is capable of much better. She was the one who actually got me into to country, and i was about 12 at the time, its dissapointing to see her result to this. Sure its not a terrible song by any means, but reba has got an amazing voice, and this song is not worthy of her talent.
I fell in love with reba's music, because of her ability to convey emotions and stories, I was going through a roughtime, and i was living in barbados at the time, i just found out that my best friend had recently just been shot and killed, and then i saw youre gonna be in a related video on youtube,i clicked it and it just lifted my spirits and made me feel SO MUCH better. You cant even imagine how that song helped me get through that tragic time,So i went and download her #1s album, and reba just became my idol, i loved her story songs and music videos like fancy and the night the lights went out in georgia, especially she thinks his name was john. It showed me that reba wasnt afraid to take risks. Which is another reason why i loved her,
I know this is a country forum, but i really just wanted to explain my situation with reba, one main reason i liked reba was because she was so different unlike the singers i heard on radio, her songs had a true depth, meaning and more importantly you could hear the emotion in reba's voice. This "new" reba, i dont recognize and dont like her one bit, believe me i have tried and tried to get into reba's new album but i just cant, the only track i really liked was When you have a child, now THAT is a song that i can hear emotion in, and it showcases reba's best vocals in a while. The Day She Got divorced is kind of good too. I like alot of reba's sassy songs, but turn on the radio and her new album just make it seem like she's waving a white flag.
