Robbie Williams – Candy Review
Robbie Williams is back. He is up with his ninth CD ‘Take the Crown,’ which comes with its carrier single ‘Candy.’ The upbeat pop song features lyrics that talk about a woman who is confident about herself. The music video is equally interesting. It features Williams acting as a guardian angel who makes many troubles just to protect a pretty mortal. What other plot can be as exciting as that?
The commercial success of the song has been evident. Upon its release, the track has peaked at the UK Singles Chart and also climbed up its way into many other music charts particularly across Europe. According to insiders, the song was originally entitled ‘Vertigo.’ But for unknown reasons, it was changed at the last minute.
Critics’ reception is somehow lackluster. The song, according to most reviews, may not be as catchy as Williams’ past hits like ‘Angels’ and ‘Rock DJ’ but it has its own features that make it catchy in its own right. Williams is heard as chanting on a playground and bouncy chant with a chorus that can be considered brassier even than his own persona. Some call it a novelty single that may not actually last in one’s memory.
