The ease with which the track makes the genre transition is a testament to Lorde’s songwriting skills and Mayer’s crushed-velvet vocals. He makes the song his own, injecting it with longing and melancholy. New Zealand’s biggest export didn’t approve of Selena Gomez‘s version but I suspect this will be more to her liking. Watch up top.
Did Mayer hit it out of the park? Have your say in the comments below.
